Her dream became a reality after just one tweet

According to Zalebs, a University of Cape Town cinematography graduate and part-time musician Yoza Mnyanda got a popurlar DJ, Black Coffee to do a song with her.

A few weeks ago, she tweeted a video of herself performing an original song called Save you From Me on campus. She later retweeted it on her birthday and asked Black Coffee how many retweets of her video she needed for him to consider working with her.

Without wasting anytime Black Coffee simply replied "let's do it," presumably after seeing the video. Black Coffee then sent out a separate tweet to arrange the meeting, this time asking Greg Nate of Soulistic Music to help arrange studio time for the collaboration.

Speaking to Huffington Post South Africa, Mnyanda said she got the idea that morning while listening to Black Coffee's song on the radio.

She then jokingly asked her boyfriend what he would think if she asked Black Coffee to work with her. He encouraged her to do it and well, you know what happened after that...

The studio session went down this past Monday and Mnyanda shared a short video of her chat with Black Coffee.

However, the song has been reported that it won’t be released as a single, it will be available in Black Coffee's next album instead.
