Boy plays drum like a pro

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the video of a little boy wearing a school uniform and drumming brilliantly has emerged on Tiktok.

The little boy's hands held two sticks which he used effortlessly to make brilliant sounds that came out perfectly.

Other than the other school mate who held up the drum for him, as is typical of many primary schools in Nigeria, the kid had no further support producing the beat of the national anthem.

In a recent development, Legit.ng also reported that this little Nigerian boy unarguably has what it takes to take over the music world with the modern drum set.
