South African Artist, known as Sho Madjozi, took the world by storm when she unleashed her rapping prowess in a song she did. The most surprising part that fans couldn’t get enough of is how she flowed in Kiswahili.
This is not the first song South African sensation Sho Madjozi has incorporated Kiswahili lyrics as she also did it in her widely popular ‘Huku’ song that landed her a performance in Kenya’s African Nouveau festival making her a fan favorite. She happens to be fluent in Kiswahili because she lived in Tanzania for a couple of years.
Her new song has reached a global scale and audience after she included ‘John Cena’ in the lyrics. Check it out below:
Fans are ecstatic and amazed by her talent. Check out their reactions below:
@ShoMadjozi I was listening to your song John Cena and my friend from Kenya who speaks Swahili understood every single word, I had no idea that Swahili and Shangaan/XiTsonga was almost the same! I am amazed. Now she is listening to all your songs nonstop, ??????

My best exam screw up was 56 years ago at school in Kenya. In French oral. I spoke mix of Swahili & French. I was pretty useless at both. Actually I laughed then and still do. I now speak zero Swahili and just enough French to get my face slapped.

I know her. I love her. She grew up in Tanzania and that’s why she speaks perfect Swahili.

I don’t know Sho Madjozi & I don’t want to pretend like she’s my favorite musician or something. But I know John Cena even though I can’t see him in the video. The fact that Sho is Satafrican & singing Good Swahili than most Kenyans can then that’s a call for a standing ovation.
