South Africans are not about to forget about President Cyril Ramaphosa's viral “stolen” iPad moment any time soon, thanks to David Scott of The Kiffness

Scott produced a hilarious song about the incident, titled iPad, and has garnered over 30,000 views in just one day. 

“Can I have my iPad, please?” Ramaphosa can be heard at the beginning of the song before the beat comes on.

The two-minute long song has received glowing reviews from fans, with some dubbing it a “Kiffness classic”.

Cape Town producer Max Hurrell, who is the man behind the “Zol” song, also shared his own remix on Twitter on Tuesday. 

Ramaphosa had scores of people talking and laughing on Tuesday after he claimed someone had “stolen” his iPad after he couldn't locate it ahead of a media address in Cape Town.

I’m waiting for my iPad. Somebody stole my iPad,” Ramaphosa said as he took to the podium at the National Ports Authority in Cape Town. Individuals could be heard laughing in the background. 

But things got serious as the president continued to question where the device was.

“Somebody has decided to dispossess me of my iPad, so I want that. Can I have my iPad, please? So they stole it. I had my iPad. Do you know where they took my iPad to?” he asked. 

The device was eventually brought to him. and, as reported by Amanda Khoza for TimesLIVE, the presidency issued a statement saying Ramaphosa was simply “making a lighthearted point while waiting for the iPad to be brought to him”. 

“Thank you, SA. There was no question of the iPad being missing or stolen. The president was making a lighthearted point while waiting for the iPad to be brought to him — which it was before he began his remarks to media,” the presidency said.
