Social media is abuzz with a new hit single courtesy of a 65-year-old woman who goes by the name of ‘Gee Six Five‘.
In the video, she is speaking isiZulu but she says that she is about to drop a sizzling single and she really thinks that South Africans are going to enjoy it.
She was not wrong as thousands of South Africans shared her song on social media.
Here’s what a few Mzansi social media users had to say about Gee Six Five when replying to her niece:

@_nhlax2 said: “I know your Aunt from the Catholic Church circles in the Dundee Diocese. It’s good to see her living her best life and congratulations to her on her achievements.”
@Gugulove20 replied: “We need more people like her. People like her help us get over the anxiety to wanting to have everything figured by 25. People like her make me know and believe that all my talents will be realised. As long as I breathe there’s hope to achieve.”
So Gee Six Five is my aunt (she who got her masters at 60 yrs+ & is pursuing a doctorate).
My family is very divided about her recording this single. She says she wants to show that you can go after your dreams no matter the age.
