South African music producer DJ Tira, whose real name is Mthokozi Khathi, recently pleaded with a driver after he forgot his expensive car keys inside an e-hailing car. The incident took place on Saturday, 2 March, when DJ Tira took the ride from Roodepoort to OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg to attend to business.


However, upon reaching his destination he realised that he had left behind the keys to his car. After jogging his memory, DJ Tira tried to reach out to the driver on their app to no avail. He then took to social media to appeal for the return of his keys and even offered to reward the driver if he brought the keys back. Speaking to ZiMoja last week, the DJ said cutting the new key and programming it was possibly going to set him back over R12 000. He also said he was not blaming the driver for his 'carelessness'. "All I need is for him to reach out and give me the key back. I would really appreciate it and reward him," he said at the time.


According to the grateful DJ Tira, the kind driver reached out to him after he saw his plea over the weekend. DJ Tira says he was shaken when he received a direct message from the driver saying that he had the key, which he delivered to the DJ personally. He said him and the driver who he mentioned only as Enos had a little chat about the day he lost his keys. "He told me he didn't realise that he had my keys until much later and he tried to reach out to me through the app but also failed until he saw my plea in the media," he said. DJ Tira also said he kept his word and gave the drive a reward of R5 000. "I can safely say both parties are happy," he added. "The amazing about the power of social media. It's such a powerful tool although sometimes we turn to abuse it or misuse it."
