Mabhoza: Lends his Soweto style to Pretoria Gqom track

Aspiring Kwaito artist, Mabhoza (Bongani Tsime) continues to win hearts of fellow musicians with his raspy voice. First it was Sbu Ama-lawyer, and now it’s a Gqom duo from Hammanskraal – Jusca and Plee.

“Mabhoza’s contribution boosted the song to be a hit,” says Plee. Her sentiment is echoed by Jusca: “He added that Soweto vibe to the track – something that we don’t have in Pretoria.”

The track, Tse nnyane, reflects the party and heedless lives of some youngsters born after 2000. It was produced under the auspices of Letona Entertainment.

Mabhoza is a hustler. He saw Sbu Ama-lawyer at a filling station in Soweto, and sold himself to him. Sbu liked his flows and they recorded a remix of a song, Monate Fela, together.

They performed at Hammanskraal, and that’s where his skill caught the attention of the local duo Plee and Jusca. Just one call sealed their collaboration deal. They also feature Nkabinde who plays a sangoma on a television series, Isibaya.

Mabhoza believes in the song and says it epitomises Pretoria party sound. He is cocksure that the song has a potential to make it big in the industry. He likes their storyline. “The concept is about children born after 2000, and I added my lines. Once I’m on top of the beat, I am unstoppable,” he brags.
