Commenting on the initiative, he says: "With Youth Month coming up in a couple of weeks, I want to celebrate us as kids and young people with my SuperMash song. Seeing kids like me dancing to the song and sanitizing will build the superhero atmosphere we need now to get through this pandemic."

SuperMash is the country’s first black child fictional superhero, and he’s immediately recognisable for the way he encourages young kids to see themselves as heroes. 

In telling stories about how he is facing life’s challenges, SuperMash becomes the reader’s friend, and gives some of his superpowers to them. 

"So, whenever anyone puts on the SuperMash costume, their superpowers are unleashed - and the child is better equipped to meet and overcome challenges. Best of all, SuperMash readers learn the true depth of the power within them as they assume personal responsibility, grow emotionally and boost their self-awareness," adds SuperMash.
