Yesterday, countless people took to social media to commemorate the passing of South African jazz legend, Hugh Masekela, and rightfully so.
Everyone from celebrities, to fans, to elected officials shared kind words and memories of the artist and his indelible impact. Former South African football player, Mark Fish, wanted to pay homage as well, and decided to send out his own tribute—except there was, well, a slight problem with his message.
NEITHER OF THE PEOPLE IN THE PHOTO BELOW ARE HUGH MASEKELA.

The man in the photo is fellow musician Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabuse, who was sure to point out to Fish that he is in fact alive and well.
Of course, Twitter was not about to let Fisher live this tremendous faux pas down, and thus, the #MarkFishChallenge was born.
The challenge is quite simple: tweet out a picture of someone or something, saying that it’s someone else. Yes, it sounds a bit childish, but we promise it’s completely amusing. And if we’re being honest, Fish deserves the dragging for being one of those people who can’t tell black folks apart.
Check out some of our favorite #MarkFishChallenge tweets below.
