Durban - The University of KwaZulu-Natal’s graduation ceremonies are the most ‘lit’, so say social media commentators after passionate parents and their graduates broke the internet on Monday.
And true to form, the ‘UKZN’ trend was the number one trending topic in Durban, sixth in South Africa, seventh in Johannesburg and eighth in Pretoria by 3pm on Tuesday.
Some of the graduates and their parents could not contain their emotions as they took to the stage to celebrate - ululating, dancing and some broke out in tears of joy as their degrees were conferred.
Last year, UKZN was again an impressive spectacle of colour, dance and joy when graduates made headlines for their passionate celebrations on the graduation stage.
Remember Chrysantha Palan, a media, arts and communications graduate who was later dubbed the catwalk graduate, when she strutted across the graduation stage amusing Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng as she transformed the stage into her catwalk.
