In May 2019 uber passenger Kim Davey posted a video of Mngoma, entertaining her on a trip.

Mngoma told eNCA, “I told her how about listening to myself. So she’s like no it’s fine, you can go for a shot and then I was just doing it light and then she was so excited to hear me singing and then she posted it on Facebook.”
