And the youngster himself, displaying a comic side of him and desirous of helping the public with finer epithets, has offered himself as Africa’s coolest kid. This didn’t happen today, of course, and no one is out disputing his being Africa’s coolest kid.

And he has begun several social initiatives that might stamp his name forever in the consciousness of his people. And you know, that’s how legends are made.

One of these initiatives has been to inspire the kids in his native Durban to see themselves in him. Mirroring him as just another kid on the block, they might aspire above their circumstances and ultimately end up somewhere in the stars – like him.
