Mzansi’s favourite DJ has done it again. Maphorisa is notorious for discovering new talent and making superstars out of them.
If he is not dabbling in different genres, he is out looking for new talent to work with. Recently the one half of Scorpion Kings has taken a street performer under his wing.
The conversation on opening up the industry was ignited once again, after Phori shared a video of him in a car with a man who performs at the corner of Spar in Midrand for a living.
According to ZAlebs the man performed his rendition of Scorpion Kings’ hit song eMcimbini, with just a guitar.
It’s not only his voice that got the attention of fans, but his jovial nature and how well he made the song his own that intrigued the masses. Even Phori could not resist and he joined the man by singing parts of the song with him.
Watch the video below:

Twitter had a Maphorisa appreciation moment and thanked the man for helping upcoming artists make their mark in the industry. He is also seen as a blessing to many young aspirant musicians.
Maphorisa is a blessing to many young people with dreams. We must appreciate his good work while he’s still alive. We must appreciate him for not only making us dance, but helping our brothers to put a bread on the table.
I salute you Phori! Uyindoda. pic.twitter.com/9Kh0TQ0VAs
