Mandela effect is a phenomenon in which a group of people together remembers an event or a fact wrongly. The term Mandela effect was coined by Fiona Broome, who is a paranormal researcher. She, along with many people from all over the world was under the influence that Nelson Mandela died while in prison in 1980s. But in 2013 when Nelson Mandela actually died due to illness, it came like a shock to people. It is almost as if they couldn’t figure out how was that possible as they were so confident about their memory that some even claimed today for his funeral rituals on TV. But that is not the only case of this effect. There are also other mandela effect examples which will astonish you.
