siSwati:

“Inkhosi seyifikile ngebuBukhosi Bayo NguYena lucobo lenetsenjiwa. Kuyoze kube nini Nizul’ ehlane lokungacondzi. Guculani tinhlitiyo tenu. Yena lowe Tsenjisiwe! Yena! Yena! Yena lowe Tsenjisiwe! Yena! Yena! Yena Uyamemeta emhlabeni. Lolu. Lolu nguloLusuku! Lolu! Lolu! Lolu nguloLusuku! Lolu! Lolu! Lolu KaNkulunkulu uyajabula losadzel’ umhlaba. Wabambelela! Wabambelela kuye Wabambelela Kuye.Tikhutsateni! Tikhutsateni Maye ye bantfu ngoba sikhatsi sifikile. Qaphelani-ke! Qaphelani Ningehluleki ukusinona. Zibongeni -ke Zibongeni Izinsuku leniphila ngazo. Ngoba angeke! Ngoba angeke ziphinde zibuye Niphinde nilithole lelo thuba.” – Baha’u’llah

English:

“Bestir yourselves… for the promised hour is now come. Beware lest ye fail to apprehend its import…” – Baha’u’llah

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness.

He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
