"I didn’t see him come in so when people were screaming I’m like yoh I’m killing it."

This was what Sho Madjozi had to say after the performer finally got to meet former wrestler, John Cena - who she penned her latest hit song about.

The surprise was orchestrated by the "The Kelly Clarkson Show" who had invited the "Huku" rapper on to perform and to talk about her music.

Sho Madjozi's "John Cena" video on Colors Studios went viral this year and has been viewed more than 5 million times, with dance groups from as far as Colombia having created dance routines to the song.

The "Idhom" rapper's reaction has warmed the heart of many on social media.
