When two KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) legends decided to meet… it was bound to be magical, but this goes above and beyond! Absolutely sensational! Watch below as the KZN Sharks collaborate with the Drakensberg Boys Choir to perform Imagine Dragons’ “Follow You”. It’s hard to see who’s most excited – the boys choir or the rugby team! (As someone noted on YouTube, it’s probably us – the viewers – because this video is impossible to watch without grinning… and shedding the odd tear of joy!)

The Drakensberg Boys Choir’s English teacher, Pamela Couzyn told SAPeople the collaboration came about after the Sharks saw the choir’s previous Imagine Dragon video.

“They loved the song and their marketing person contacted ours and the rest is history. I think even the Stormers/Lions supporters amongst our boys are now big Sharks fans,” says Pamela. “It was so great of the Sharks to recognise a school which places the Arts first. And of course these boys were treated with great affection by them… so they all have a story to tell us. One of the boys was overheard telling his mates: ‘That’s the Dream Team right there! Sharks and Drakies!’🤣🤣🤣”

As the choir says “Magic happens when the arts and sports come together! 🖤”


The choir said on social media: “We are so honoured to have been able to take part in this incredible project involving two iconic Kwazulu Natal brands.”

The Sharks posted a video on Twitter saying: “Turning the tables in the tunnel as we salute the Drakensberg Boys Choir on yet another magical performance 👏”
