Durban - Imagine one of your favourite artists sharing your video on their social media and having that same video be seen more than two millions times.
Well, that is exactly what happened to Jonathan Jacobs a Sydenham youngster who dances for local dance crew, Show Dem Entertainment. A video of him dancing with his friends at his high school last year, has been viewed over two millions times on Instagram after it was posted by American artists; Chris Brown and Jermaine Dupri.
Jacobs is part of the junior dance crew and has been dancing for the group for the last two years.
The video was shared last year and is still having a major impact on Jacobs.
In the video, the now Grade 12 pupil is seen dancing outside his school to 'Huku' by South African poet and rapper, Sho Madjozi. He is cheered on by his classmates who join in on the dancing later in the video.
Lyndon Green started Sho Dem Entertainment as a way of getting youngsters off the street and develop their talent. He said he was proud of Jacobs and thrilled that the video went viral.
"We are honoured to have him on our team. Dream big son, we will always have your back," he said.
