The girl who is causing all the buzz with a cover video done over Canadian rapper Drake’s Controlla is none other than Michelle Bisonga.

The violist, song writer and aspiring music producer, Michelle, who attended Technical University of Kenya, sings and posts her cover songs on her social media domains but the response this particular video has received has been overwhelming.

While sharing the video on Facebook, Sauti Sol wrote: “This is so amazing, girl, your cover is so amazing. Drake would be so proud.”
