WATCH| “Young Malume” Goes Viral After Funny Street Race


Remember Malume?

South Africans on Twitter are in stitches over a video of a younger version of him running in a street race.

Last month, Malume broke the internet and evoked so much laughter after he competed in a swimming competition. iHarare reported that Malume was at a  family event when he decided to step forward and participate in the single-lap amateur race.

He dived hilariously into the pool and started kicking and punching in the water. Despite being in the last position. He kept on swimming until the end of the lap.

A young child who people now refer to as “Young Malume” has broken the internet after his hilarious street race performance.

The little man joined six other kids who were all considerably older than him, and they went to a nearby pitch for a quick sprint.

You can tell he is quite younger than the other runners on the track by the way he is crouching down when the “official” shouts “On Your Marks.”

Without much ado, the official blows the whistle, and immediately, the racers spring up to sprint. Young Malume gets up to run a tad bit late than the rest of the crew.

The older kids sprint faster and widen the gap between them and Young Malume, but the preschooler, who looks like a toddler, keeps running eagerly towards the finishing line.

One spectator cheers the little man and shouts, “Hamba Malume!” before she bursts into laughter.

Watch the hilarious video below.



SA Twitter was quite inspired by Young Malume.



He is a winner. I am  sure he will be a world champion sooner. 


😍👏🏾I just love that he didn’t stop. He kept going, and that is something we can all learn to do. Perseverance, even if or when others are laughing or doing better. Well done, B for effort 😀😀
