Yesterday was Yoza Mnyanda’s crown birthday and she decided to shoot her shot. Mnyanda — a recent University of Cape Town film grad and aspiring cinematographer with the voice of an angel — seized the day and tweeted South African DJ and producer Black Coffee, asking how many retweets she’d need for him to make a song with her.

Attached was a performance she did last year for UCT’s Live Room.

Black Coffee was so impressed he didn’t even send her on a quest for retweets.

The DJ is in Cape Town this weekend for Ultra Music Festival, but despite what is surely a busy schedule, suggested recording on Friday.

Because dreams are meant to come true, Mnyanda is based in Cape Town.

Twitter erupted with excitement for the soulful songstress.

Even Twitter itself is not-so-patiently awaiting the release for what is sure to be the song of 2017.

If you, like the rest of South Africa, simply can’t wait for the song to be released, here’s a 17-year-old Mnyanda killing Duffy’s Warwick Avenue.
