Represented Durban at various platforms around the country as a solo MC and later as part of the groundbreaking pioneering group Izimbongi Zase Wuthawini. Recorded and released Durban’s first hip hop compilation titled, ‘Isinamuva Liyabukwa’ featuring most of the city’s pioneering rap artists, DJ’s and beatboxes.
