Video of an Uber Driver in South Africa Singing Opera Goes Viral

    When Menzi Mngoma decided to get a job as an Uber driver, it was mostly out of necessity. Though he’s currently based in Durban, South Africa, Mngoma dreams of becoming an international musical sensation; he thought that driving Uber might help him make connections with people who could further his career.

    In late May, he was driving a woman from Johannesburg named Kim Davey while she was in Durban for a business trip. They got to talking, and Mngoma revealed he is an opera singer. Davey asked him to sing; he complied with several arias. The videos she took of his performance, showcasing his lyric tenor, have since racked up hundreds of thousands of views on Facebook.
