Watch! American Series Lucifer Uses Afrikaans As The Demon Language. However, the thing that was on people’s tongues was the Lillum language of Maze the demon.
Afrikaans has recently been named the second sexiest language in the world. As if this wasn’t an achievement, the language also had its first appearance in the highly acclaimed American series ‘Lucifer’. The 4th season of the show was released on Netflix yesterday (Wednesday).
However, the thing that was on people’s tongues was the Lillum language of Maze the demon. Some of the viewers realised that Maze, played by Lesley-Ann Brandt was communicating in Afrikaans. The part that was seen in the first episode of the 4th season happened at meeting with her psychotherapist, Doctor Linda Martin, played by Rachel Harris.
Doctor Martin told the demon that it might be good for her to speak Maze’s language. Maze asked the doctor if she could understand the language before she spoke the language. The demon said: “Kan jy vir my verstaan wat ek praat? Want ek wil saam met jou praat.” This means, “Can you understand what I am saying, because I want to talk to you?” She used a slightly distorted voice when she said her statement.
A fan asked Lesley-Ann Brandt how she chose to speak the Afrikaans language as a Lillum. Lesley-Ann replied to the fan saying that she used the language to pay homage to South Africa. She also ensured fans that she can still speak Afrikaans. One social media user said that Afrikaans sounds demonic when she speaks it like that with her distorted voice.
So, apparently the #Afrikaans language is the official language in hell. Guess I'm sorted. ??— Werner Vermaak (@wervermaak) May 8, 2019
