- South Africans were in awe of a viral video of a man performing Sho Madjozi's hit song, John Cena
- The video shows the white man flawlessly singing the song in Swahili
- The video has since gathered over 110 000 views since it was posted online
On Wednesday, a social media user, James Bassingthwaighte, posted a video of himself performing Sho Madjozi's song, John Cena, and his Swahili is on point.
"Yo, @ShoMadjozi, Swahili pronunciation score out of 10? #JohnCena #JohnCenaChallenge," he captioned the video.
According to TimesLIVE, James said he never thought the video would go viral and that he tagged the muso as a joke.
The publication reported James is one of the directors of SA's most-loved choirs, the Mzansi Youth Choir. He asked them to perform the song but they said it was too difficult.
So, James took a day to learn the words and he filmed himself singing the hit song.
He said: "I speak English, Afrikaans and ngiyakhuluma kancane isiZulu, meaning I also speak a bit of Zulu. I have no understanding of Swahili. I just learnt the song in a day through practice.”
Since it was published on social media on Wednesday, the video managed to gather over 110 000 views.
South Africans were impressed by James' rendition of the song and they applauded him in the comment section.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported on a talented dancer, who goes by the stage name Limpopo Boy Bujwa, has been making waves on social media.
The dancer performed a routine on Sho Madjozi's John Cena and it was so good he even got a shout-out from the muso herself.
