I got a voice note from someone in London who has always lived in London but he sounds South African to me... it that possible?

Perhaps his parents are from South Africa and/or he has many friends from that area.1

They are similar but also very different. British folk sound very regal, while South Africans sound more laid-back, almost like Aussies only without so much slang. But both accents stem from the British anyway. So do New Yorkers and folks from the south in the US - if you listen closely they have similar sounds. At least they do to me as someone not from any of those countries! :)0
