Hi, I'm Sy Savage(real name Lenin Sihle Rampeng) and I'm a rapper, musician and songwriter. Born on the 28th of September 1996 in Worcester, Western Cape where I grew up and lived most my life. I grew up in a house filled with music cassettes and CD's and that's where my love for music began. From Kwaito, to Gospel(though I didn't listen to it that much), to afro pop, to South African Jazz and Hip Hop. Started writing my own music at the age of 9 and I've been at it ever since. Started recording at the age of 13 and released my first track under the crew "Intellectual Techniques" but due to the passing of my mother, my passion for music hit its lowest till the point where I decided to take a long break from music(but continued writing). Moved to East London, Eastern Cape at the age of 13/14, moved back to Worcester at the age of 16/17 where my love for music was revived. Started recording again and released my first solo single "Lyrical Psycho" which got me recognition as a musician in my town and amongst my peers. Released a few more tracks that got me a bit of following from all over South Africa. In 2015 I released a single titled "Untitled" which grew my fan-base even further and as many say was my breakthrough into the underground music scene. In 2016 I relocated to Johannesburg, Gauteng as a way to push my music as a career and I'm still grinding to make that dream a reality. So as I partake ona journey to get my music heard, I got one question for you. CAN I COUNT ON YOUR SUPPORT??? www.soundcloud.com/SySavage6852 www.facebook.com/SySavage6852 www.twitter.com/@Sy_Savage For bookings/Enquiries: sysavage6852@gmail.com / 0798085987 ‪#‎TheSavageTeam‬ ‪#‎KINGSAVAGE‬


Thando Dlamini was born 18 February 1986 in Soweto, His obvious chosen vocation was always the music business - His music is mostly used as film sound track, scores and advert etc. As a person who has worked with the disadvantaged and had his own experiences in the matter thereof he always had a passion for the children or youth of Africa. He believes that the future of the country is in the hands of the youth thus it’s important to allow them to dream and to reach for the stars and beyond. 2013/14 saw him working on an inspiring TV Commercial by J&B using the real life success story of Sheer Publishing client DJ Sbu (via TS Records) and using a commissioned piece by a UK based company who in turn enlisted the services of Sheer Publishing very talented composer Thando Dlamini (See Meet Your Composer in http://www.sheerpublishing.co.za/tag/thando-dlamini/ ) to rap in the song. Time will tell, but from initial signs, SA might have another true musician and youth ambassador. Watch this space. For more info contact noksmaseko@gmail.com / +2773 452 1254

Siyabonga Nkala ‘Star Borne’ is a talented kwaito artist from Johannesburg, South Africa, born in 1988-09-19. At the age 11 years Siyabonga started writing his own songs, RnB and Gospel as a member church and school choir. In 2004 Siyabonga “Star Borne” Started a group called Ama-Party Maker with Ayaya Socikwa aka Dj Aya because one of his school friends was getting studio time with Robby Malinga (one of South Africa’s best producers of all time). They began making a mixtape to submit to Robby Malinga. The mixtape was not coming together because Dj Aya was becoming popular in the neighbourhood as thee young house producer and Star Borne was occupied with his rehearsals and performances for internationals like Thabo Mbeki, Oprah, NBA Players, Chris Turker and many more, at Ituteng Trust. Star Borne then moved to Cape Town beginning of 2007 to study but decided to go back to Johannesburg mid-year to study and continue doing music. Worked in a couple of songs over the years while learning how to make beats that would suit his style, worked with artists like Deep Soweto, Lilac Jeans, as a vocalist. In 2009 Star Borne discovered his house tunes were too deep and then he started writing Kwaito (Dance) and Hip Hop songs which was where he discovered his strength. Now Star Borne is a performing Kwaito artist who produces deep house tracks and most of his beats. He has not officially released anything as Star Borne yet but has house tracks released in the UK as Bonga short for ‘Siyabonga’ and also a few others available for download on his sites (kwaito)
