A waiter WOWed customers with an incredible impromptu Opera performance!


Kenton-On-Sea, South Africa (05 January 2020) – Kelly Main was having lunch at Pizerella in Kenton-On-Sea when a waiter stood up and WOWed the entire restaurant with the most incredible Opera song!

Kenton-on-Sea, more commonly known as Kenton, is a small coastal town on the Sunshine Coast, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. It is situated between the Bushmans and the Kariega Rivers and lies approximately halfway between the industrial centres of East London and Port Elizabeth.

Main was having lunch in a little restaurant in Kenton when she heard the most incredible singing, jumped up and grabbed her camera to share what she had heard with the world!

“It literally sent goosebumps down my spine. If I had to close my eyes, I would have thought I was at the Opera.”

After listening to his beautiful voice, Main asked Mteto Maphoyi about his story.

Maphoyi’s mom was musical so started off his life self taught and learnt from his mom. He received some form of training in Johannesburg and in Cape Town.

“At the beginning of the year, he lost his job due to COVID – I stand to be corrected on the exact details – and in desperate need of work, got in touch with a friend who got him a casual job as a waiter at the Pizerella restaurant in Kenton on Sea, Eastern Cape.

He has a voice like an angel, a sunny and happy disposition and a wonderful smile that I couldn’t help but think, how on earth can this talent go unidentified?”
