TikTok dancer Juandré Nortje’s moves have gone viral and caught the attention of DJ Maphorisa.
The popular TikTokker has been making dance videos on the social media app gaining more than 100k followers notching up over 770k likes in the process.
He usually dances to amapiano or gqom, showcasing the wide range of dance moves South Africans have in their arsenal.
Juandré recently went viral on Twitter when he posted a video on TikTok with another dancer after a video shoot dancing to “Amanikiniki” by MFR Souls featuring Major League DJz, Kamo Mphela and Bontle Smith.
This video was first reposted by Twitter user @KhristoJuggler who captioned the post, “The beauty that is South Africa”.
Tweeps were shaken by the sight of Juandré in Boerboel Wear dancing to amapiano.
