A video of Sihle Maseko showing off his astonishing drumming skills went viral on social media.

After seeing drummers on TV and in church, Maseko was inspired to build his own makeshift drum kit out of junk. He put together an entire drum set one afternoon made from discarded plastic buckets, coffee tins, bricks and metal drums, he told All4Women.

Maseko’s mom Bontle Setshedi is extremely proud of her son, telling the Sunday Times that she believed he had a gift from God.
