Bedfordview High Grade 11 learner, Khumo Bokaba, who goes by the rap name ‘Riah Skit‘ posted a few videos of himself rapping to his fellow learners. Twitter users retweeted the video and tagged South African artists and producers to try and get them to recognise the learner’s talent.

Eventually, rapper Reason (real name Sizwe Moeketsi) tweeted his response: ‘Wait. Is that Bedfordview High? Ok dope. I’ma pull up on you on Friday. We got some work to do.’ The whole of rap Twitter is waiting to see the outcome.
