Charismatic and always animated, Sho Madjozi is about as hype as a cultural ambassador can get. Reppin’ for the Continent, South Africa’s red-hot music scene, and her Tsonga ethnic group, Sho Madjozi has taken the world by storm with her hit single “John Cena.”

For the latest episode of our Sound Check interview series, AFROPUNK caught up with her after a high-energy performance at our Atlanta Carnival of Consciousness. In our chat, she explains how the wrestler’s name relates to her love life, putting on for her people, and how Africa is finally getting recognized for its cultural contributions.
