Thapelo Mayisela (14), Grade 7, Re­fano Pri­mary

CityPress - - News -

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.
