A group of men filled a taxi with positive vibes when they bopped their heads to an infectious Afrikaans song.

TikTokker @chicojuniorbean shared the video on the popular app, showing viewers that the taxi and its passengers were on their way to the University of the Witwatersrand (WITS). However, the group did not sit in silence as they approached the entrance to the tertiary institution.

The cameraperson who sat in front swung their camera to the men at the back who jammed to the song Funky by Biggy featuring Jack Parow, Loufi and beatsbyhand on full blast.
