Johannesburg - "Hello... It's me..."

Those are the texts fueling one of Mzansi's hottest trends at the moment: The #HelloChallenge.

Based on the uber-hit song, Hello by Adele, fans across Mzansi (and the world) have been texting their exes the lyrics to the song and then posting it online. It may be a bit awkward for those receiving the messages, but it's flippin addictive to watch.

Thousands of fans have taken up the challenge, including some of our celebs. Here's some of their experiences with the challenge:


The Live AMP presenter tried to pull one on her mom, but her mother was more concerned about whether Loot was drinking enough water. So Loot decided to try the challenge on her cab driver. LOL. At least he's a praying man, right?

Simphiwe Dana got her text from her friend, Shaka Sisulu (you might have heard of him). Lucky she knows how to swerve..


Khabonina has never been one to be put in a box or follow the trend. So when she tried the challenge, you better believe it was unique...

When Lerato texted fellow Metro FM presenter, DJ Malwela, he couldn't believe it was her. #ConfusedForDays

So Lerato, "we were wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet?" You know, "to go over everything..."
