The dance challenge first began in August, after Sho Madjozi dropped “John Cena” and the song hit one million views on YouTube.

John Cena dancing to “John Cena” quickly caught South Africa’s attention and the moment trended on Twitter well into Tuesday morning.

Excited that a local song appeared on an international platform, fans applauded Sho Madjozi’s success as a musician.

Sho Madjozi is quickly becoming one of South Africa’s favourite celebrities, and not just for her music. Back in early September, the singer gained even more support after posting her thoughts on xenophobia and gender-based violence in the country.
