Thapelo Mayisela (14), Grade 7, Refano Primary
Thapelo was not sure if he wanted to become a soccer player or a musician when he grew up. His first love was music, but he equally enjoyed soccer and wanted to play for Orlando Pirates, his favourite team. He loved rap music and always had earphones in his ears, which irritated his father.
But it was his tapping on the kitchen table while singing his favourite songs that drove his father up the wall.
His father says he yearns for that annoying sound.
