[LISTEN] Opera-singing Uber driver auditions for CPT opera - #Update
Remember the gifted Uber driver who made headlines after he serenaded a passenger with his opera-singing talent last month?
Less than two weeks later, Cape Talk was the first to report the news that 27-year-old musicology graduate Menzi Mngoma would be auditioning for a role with Cape Town Opera.
On Wednesday, the Durban-born tenor's dream came true after he accepted an invitation to sing for the company.
He caught up with Pippa Hudson shortly after the audition.

Mngoma says while he has yet to receive feedback from Cape Town Opera his life has already begun to change for the better.
