Anything is possible – Johannes Witbooi

This is Johannes’s motto in life. He believes in making the best out of every situation even through hardship, and he has already been tested on countless occasions throughout his young life.

He does not give up easily. His journey has been hard but he has managed to live by the life lessons his mother instilled in him. His mother taught him to always be respectful, live his life in the right manner and always aim for the best. Although his mom is no longer with us he still sings about her. He performed a very inspirational song that he himself wrote and dedicated it to his mother at the Valentine’s Day talent show held at I Can!

Johannes is a song writer, rapper and Eastern Province (EP) wrestling instructor/coach amongst many other talents. He is part of a gospel group named Truth Squad. Their main aim is to reach out and inspire the youth through music and poetry, bringing people closer to God and inspiring them to change their lives for the better. They have done amazing things to keep the youth off the streets, and were even featured on Carte Blanche a few years ago as a positive example for the youth.

He continues to thank I Can! for the opportunity he has been given to learn and change his life. He has learned to be independent and he believes that education is a key factor in preparing for a successful coaching career. He is involved in the Barmar awards talent search (gospel category).
