Expression of good luck for classical singers.
Saying "toi toi" to a singer is the equivalent of saying "break a leg" to an actor.

When a group of people, sometimes even hundreds or thousands, do a combination of singing, dancing and chanting to express unhappiness about something. In the southern part of africa, when the people are unhappy about something, usually something regarding the government, a group of people feeling strongly about the cause will organize a toi toi and take to the street. It usually gets alot of media attention. Most commonly performed by black people although in recent years white and coloured people have started joining in. A toi toi is often used as part as a protest
The people were unhappy with their salaries, so they refused to go to work and had a toi toi in front of the union building
