The Juice spoke to Stilo recently, and he told us how the pose was born!

"It was never something I was conscious of, or something I wanted to create," he tells us.

"Riky and I were doing a huge December run last year, when fans kept asking me for a picture. I was so tired and so in one or two pictures I posed like that and it spread. I started doing it when I was tired and, well, I was tired all the time. When I got back to Joburg I realised that this thing had taken off, even though, in my head, it was never a thing!"

So the next time you pose for a photo, don't pull out your tongue. Instead pull a #PoseLikeStilo!
