Awww... we love happy stories.

Do you remember that little boy who became a social media star after singing Nathi Mankayi's Nomvula? In a video, that was shared on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, three-year-old Mthombo Ndibaza stole the hearts of many with his rendition of the hit track. 

Mthombo has finally met his idol, thanks to Eastern Cape radio station, Tru FM. This all went down at the Tru Talent Awards in King William's Town, Eastern Cape, on Saturday. 

According to Daily Sun, little Mthombo's aunt said she could not believe it when he was invited to the show. She told the paper: "Mthombo was so excited to meet his idol and perform with him. The family was so proud to witness this moment." 

She said they were scared and shocked when the video was put up by gardeners who recorded Mthombo at the clinic. "We were told to sue, but after we saw the positive response he was getting from people we let it go."


Nathi, who has sold over 100,000 copies of his debut album, Beyel'ekhaya, really made his young fan's dream a reality.

Tru FM marketing manager Sbongi Ngcobo told Daily Sun: "Nathi and his management saw the video of Mthombo singing and were keen to meet him."
