Cassper Nyovest’s early morning scrolling on social media has helped tweeps discover the singing talents of an unlikely singer. A Twitter user by the name of Amanda Radebe posted a video of a person singing Adele’s When We Were Young. Looking at the singer’s appearance many would have expected the vocalist to not have the type of talent that they exude when they start singing.  

Cassper in his retweeting of the post echoed these sentiments writing, “I really thought I was gonna laugh throughout this video but that voice blew me away and I ended up just watching in awe. Wow!” The video started gaining traction and has gone viral on social media with many tweeps sharing the video, including acclaimed producer and co-created of the South African version of Verzuz, Gemini Major, sharing the video.
Following the video gaining traction, it is alleged the singer name is Thabo, who is affectionately known by his stage name, Mabena.

Some tweeps took to the comments section of his post to suggest that Cassper should think about featuring the singer on a track, and while Cassper might not feature Mabena on a song any time soon, he did help social media users to not judge a “book by its cover.”

Even Sarah Langa was emotional about the singer's gifted voice.
