Aviwe Mtongana, 15, Raps ‘Hell On Earth’ To Obama During His Visit To South Africa
President Barack Obama received an unscheduled performance during his visit to the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation Youth Centre in South Africa when a teenage boy performed an original rap he had been working on for the President.
President Obama is currently on a weeklong tour of Africa, with stops in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. After being greeted by Desmond Tutu, who welcomed the President ‘home’, the two visited the Youth Centre, which provides local young people with after-school programs, including a music class. Fifteen-year-old Aviwe Mtongana, a student of music and an aspiring rapper, performed his original, "Hell on Earth," after being prompted by the President. Mtongana, who goes by "Katmeister," according to ABC News, rapped about world problems, and was urged to ‘drop the mic’ by President Obama when he had finished.
President Obama has been warmly received along his travels in Africa, most recently upon his arrival in Tanzania. According to The New York Times, this is his last stop before returning to the U.S.
