Johannesburg - Local TV legend Basetsana Kumalo can tell her friends she's met Ne-Yo, but she might not want to tell them the awkward, and frankly hilarious way that it happened.

Bassie was leaving the MTV MAMA's on Saturday night when she walked into a mob of people crowding to take pictures with someone.

She turned to her escort and asked who the person was:

"He answers 'It's Ne-Yo".  I say, 'you mean Neo', thinking to myself, our children can't even pronounce SeSotho names these days!," she recounted on social media.

"So I proceed to tell 'Neo','son you are clearly good at what you do, with so many people trying to catch a glimpse of you' he politely laughs and I say, 'maybe we should take a pic.'"

"As we take a pic, his supporters shout my name, and he says 'I clearly should be asking to take a pic with you', so he takes out his camera, and we take another pic."

"Then into my car and off I go my merry way."

It was only a little while later that poor Bassie realised who the famous "neo" was.

"I've just learnt this is thee world famous Ne-Yo! American R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer and actor!!!Miss Independent is one of my favorite hits of his!!" she wrote on social media.

"Well I blame it on being 41. I can't keep up..."

Don't worry Bassie, next time you wanna "keep up" just read The Juice. We got your back!
