It has been a wild ride since Sho Madjozi (real name Maya Wegerif) debuted the song John Cena on Colors, just a few months ago. The catchy song was embraced by the wrestler-turned-actor who promoted it on his social media channels and even attempted to dance to the song on the Ellen show.
Sho Madjozi, herself, made an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, where The Voice mentor asked her about the song, about why she decided to name it after John Cena and then asked her to perform.
Kelly had previously noted that Sho Madjozi had not met John before, but added in that he wasn’t there because they ‘didn’t have the budget.’ But to Maya’s surprise while she was performing he snuck up behind her.
What happens next is hilarious, watch the video here:
Sho Madjozi later posted on Twitter that because her back was to him, when the audience started screaming she just thought they were loving her performance.
I didn’t see him come in so when people were screaming I’m like yoh I’m killing it 😅😂🤣 https://t.co/P9Cm9uMIae

John also posted about the experience and how happy he was that WWE could inspire an artist from the other side of the world:
Thank you @KellyClarksonTV @kellyclarkson for an amazing moment and what an honor to learn @ShoMadjozi story and how @WWE could inspire an artist around the world. Do your best to be your best, because you never know who’s watching or how they’re affected. https://t.co/dckbtAeGYh

The Blockers actor also went on another talk show shortly afterwards discussing how the WWE wanted him to stop Sho Madjozi from using his name in her song for IP reasons, but he found it inspirational.
Watch that beautiful interview here:
So WWE tried to get John Cena to stop Sho Madjozi from performing John Cena because of IP issue.
But my champ said no. Great guy! pic.twitter.com/5fdww0mZ0d
