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.

“That time I can't even recover from I vosho alone nje,” commented @ThulaniThuswa.

“Can I just say South Africans dances are soothing and so enjoyable to watch,” said @samialati.

“Nothing to see here, regular South African oaks (sic) dancing but that fade thou who cut ol'boy with the bum shorty's hair? Legends?” said @TakieNenza.

“How’s he doing all that with those tight ass pants?!!” commented @verrroonaa.

“Every time this video pops i like,” said @Sevhic.

“They dance far better than I can,” commented @iamSthee.

“They dance better than me,” said @i_perseverance.

“Good moves but could they smaller short pants,” said @cazker1.

The video made its way to Scorpion King DJ Maphorisa who was clearly also taken aback at Juandré’s ability.
