Somewhere after the 50th time of watching Childish Gambino's This is America, DJ Cleo must have thought: 'What if this dude was from South Africa."

Everyone is still talking about THAT video of Childish Gambino dancing his troubles away while the world around him is descending into chaos. And to ride the wave Cleo has released a video of Childish breaking it down to a gqom track.

Trust us, it's even funnier than it sounds.

The video kicks off with the star's back to the camera, as Cleo's artist Bizizi is heard kicking off her hit song, Thuso Phala.

From there it was just chaos with the American stars moves being dubbed over the song.

One of our favourite parts was when he pushes out his stomach with the swagger of a taxi driver as he groves to the gqom beat.

And when he is surrounded by the kids... Sarafina vibes.
