Vodacom : Okay Sir, and how can we help you with this?

Julius : My bill haff all these calls to Salulah and my wife think I haffing an affair with this woman, but I never heard of her before.

Customer : This one does.

Vodacom : What phone do you have, Sir?

Customer : A mobile. I tell you this.

Vodacom : No, Sir, what make? What do you have in your hands?

After a moment's silence, the gallant Vodacom worker continued.

Vodacom : Um, sir? Could you spell that for me?

Customer : For sure - E..R..I..C..S..S..O..N. - Erection.
Another moment's silence from Vodacom, and suddenly the penny dropped.

Vodacom : Sir? Can you spell Salulah for me?

Customer : For sure. C..E..L...L..U..L..A...R. - Salulah.

While reading the post, what the female neame is Salulah? I was guessing this communication was taken in India or something.
Cellular is Salulah? funny one.

This otherwise hilarious post exhibits how an African English speaker may sound bizarre with his typical accent as highlighted in the case of 'Ericsson' and and 'Cellular' as 'erection' and 'Salulah'.

Oh, this is an african accent? I thougth it was from some part of India. Yeah its hilarous. I wonder in which part of the world this Voda fone is popular? Once I was traveling to nepal via England and I saw some commercial there. Thats why I thought some indian guy call voda fone in England.

It is really Hilarious. It looks like Ekalavy is now into English writing!
