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.

John Cena himself weighed in on the moment and remarked how amazing it was to finally met her.

"Thank you Kelly Clarkson for an amazing moment and what an honor to learn Sho Madjozi's story," he said.

Even the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa said: "Through her authentic expression of African culture Sho Madjozi has displayed to the world the unique identity of our African people."
