20 December 2018 Guest’s: Trompies

Trompies are a South African music group who specialise in a type of pop music known as Kwaito. The members of the group grew up together in a Soweto Township and agreed to form a band after they had all completed their music studies in college. Beginning to make music in the mid 1990s, they have since sold over half a million records and have become very successful in producing and managing other artists as well through their record label Kalawa Jazmee.

The group is made up of five members, Emmanuel “Mjokes” Matsane, Mandla “Spikiri” Mofokeng, Eugene “Donald Duck” Mthethwa, Jairus “Jakarumba” Nkwe and Zynne “Mahoota” Sibika. They use various vernacular languages where they speak about daily issues society faces.

Two of the group members had previous performing experience as dancers in Chicco Twala’s group, and a third was the keyboard player for popular South African reggae artist Lucky Dude. This background in older forms of dancing and music lends to their music a style of singing and synchronised dancing and dressing that is much more often found in a pop group than in kwaito, which was previously thought of as the “music of gangsters” but is now, thanks in part to Trompies, becoming increasingly more well-respected.

18 December 2018 Guest: Kwesta

Kwesta is one of SA’s most prominent figures in the music industry. He has three albums under his belt and has worked with one of the USA’s most noticeable rappers such as, Wale and Rick Ross.

The Katlehong born star, took an interest in poetry during his high school years and received positive feedback and encouragement from fellow students and teachers.[

In 2003, Kwesta, then known as Quest, and some friends, formed a group called “Ghetto Fellaz”, which became known as “The Juvenylz” with an additional member. His crew hoped to be discovered and signed, but this did not happen. Kwesta dropped out of high school at age 16 to pursue his music career full-time. He recorded his first demo in his home studio. This demo caught the attention of Africa’s Most Southern Record Company (AMS), which eventually allowed him to use their recording facilities.

Kwesta, still a teenager, convinced his mother to give him taxi fare necessary to get to Buttabing Entertainment’s offices. This meeting resulted in him being added to Buttabing Entertainment’s roster, co-owned by founding members Shugasmakx and Slikour.

He is currently signed to his own Independent and media company known as Rap Lyf with co-founder Kid X. His third studio album Dakar II was released on 26 February 2016. Tune in tonight at 22:30 live on SABC 3. #TSAon3
