Siphesihle Xaba, an Engen petrol attendant, is going viral after he took the opportunity to freestyle for rapper Thato ‘L-Tido’ Madonsela.
Engen petrol attendant freestyles for L-Tido
Xaba’s line of work allows him to interact with tons of new faces, every shift. On Tuesday, an opportunity of a lifetime presented itself when L-Tido, one of South Africa’s long-standing Hip-Hop artists, pulled up to the fuel pumps.
Not letting this grand opportunity slide, Xaba nudged at the Dlala Ka Yona star for a freestyle. Here is the video clip that’s since gone viral.

When is L-Tido releasing new music?
The gesture pulled off by L-Tido will surely go a long way in motivating the Engen petrol attendant to keep on pushing for a break in his music career.
In Tido’s case, it’s been a quiet year thus far. The last time we saw the Thixo rapper on the music circuit was with the release of his fourth studio album 16V, which dropped in 2018.
Three years into the drought, fans of the rapper have no inkling on when a new project will come, and by the looks of his social media activity, it doesn’t appear that music is a priority for Tido.
