WATCH: Usain Bolt tries to do the vosho

Hope Winters

World-renowned athlete has spent the past few days in Mzansi and has been taking in everything our country has to offer – even the vosho.

Retired track superstar Usain Bolt makes an appearance in front of thousands of aspiring athletes at the Puma School Of Speed in Ruimsig, 29 January 2018.

For those of you who don’t know what the vosho is, it’s a dance that was made famous by entertainer Zodwa Wabantu.

Usain jetted into the country last Friday ahead of the Sun Met on Sunday, as part of his duties as GH Mumm CEO (Chief Entertainment Officer).

After the glitzy horse racing event, Usain got the chance to party it up in the Mother City.

And, could not help but join in the fun of trying to do the vosho.


In an interview with TshisaLIVE, the athlete said that he was enjoying every moment of being in the country and that he felt “right at home”.

“When I say Africa is the motherland, it’s not just a cool saying, it’s really from a place of feeling at home here,” he said.

Usain also gushed about South Africans knowing how to have fun.

“I love the saying, ‘South Africans know how to have fun’ because it’s not like everything is perfect but they know how to find joy in the simplest things,” he added.
