BlakZuba is a rapper/hip-hop artist/record-producer/ from Mpumalanga province. He grew up in two small towns Volksrust and Perdekop and moved to Gauteng province in the year 2000 and stayed with his father in Midrand in a township called Mayibuye in commercial Ext 34. Completed his matric in 2004 at Boitumelong Senior Secondary School, and currently stays in Tembisa 163 at Gauteng Province. Born as Mthokozisi Sidney Nkosi. His stage name (i.e. BlakZuba) goes back to his high-school days when he was rapping / freestyling in his classroom for his classmates. His high school friend Sifiso Shepherd Vilakazi currently residing stays in Tembisa, Ecaleni section better known as Ekhalambazo nicknamed him Zuba because of his white complexion skin; as zuba in Tembisa back in the days was a word used to refer to a “white person”. He later on in 2003 added the Blak to the name and it how it ended up being BlakZuba which means “Mlung`omnyama” (white black person). Blakzuba started writing his own songs in the year 2000. He was in grade eight at the time. He performed his first verse for his friend, and he liked it and from there on he continued to write more and more until he mastered his flow and skill of Zulu vernacular rap with a ‘tsotsitaal’ feel and a mixture of English. When he performed live four of his songs at Tembisa, Endayeni section at Papa Chilo at a hip hop session he was advised by a well-known artist Slick Angel after shaking his hand that he has originality and must not rush but work on harnessing his skills and learning more about the music industry. His first hip hop mix-tape, called “Break De Silence” in year 2009 feature’s his then hip hop crew Lab Squad; and that was his first production i.e. his first hip-hop project and all beats on the project composed and arranged by himself. But the mix-tape did not work out as planned because the crew split and all members went on different directions. The second mix-tape, which is mainly an introduction on his art-form and it his solo project also produced by himself. The mix-tape was hand sold to his fans as it wasn’t going to be available in retail shops and he had no resources. It`s not easy being an independent artist in South Africa, but BlakZuba has done good so far and slowly but surely pushes without limitations. He currently owns and runs his independent record label Blood And Sweat Productions in Gauteng Province, Tembisa, and also has designed and owns a website where he focuses on promoting other musicians free off-charge called the Words And Beats Blog. BlakZuba currently has two singles released online and are available on iTunes & Amazon. Thank You For Your Support.

Was born in Soweto, attended 1st grade at Isaccson Primary in 1989 and was introduced to music by his father who was a music collector. His older brother got a tape deck and recorded his voice at the age of nine and this has fascinated him and it became a passion that has never faded ever since. Growing up, he was a typical Sowetan boy who listened to what was then called ‘International Music’ and was a fan a of Black Box & Real to Real. His favourite local Dj was Dj Dikgwele who spun cassettes and later on in 1994 he was introduced to Kwaito and Hiphop by his cousin who had collected artists like Heavy D & The boyz, Salt n Pepper & Nas. He immediately wished to study music but his parents convinced him to finish his matric first. He met Thando Mofokeng and together they started to record overdubs of on a JVC tape deck and a 45 key-Casio keyboard and that is where he learned to do the basics of cutting and pasting loops and lacing vocals. In 1999, a friend of his called Phafee, was returning from Germany and brought a load of music software’s like Hammerhead & Anvil Studio. A year later he was mesmerised with midi music programming and by the time he finished school, he was doing electronic music using to Fruity Loops pro V.1 and Cool Edit Pro. In 2001, he made his first radio appearance where he was performing on Oskido & Rude-boy Paul’s show on Y.FM. His song was quickly adopted as the theme track for Sprite Y.fm Rap Activity Jam Show & was aired for over 12 months. Gaining that little exposure inspired him to continue studying Music Technology at Parktown College where he was mentored by musicians such as Demor Sikhosana, Bheki Khoza and Simon Ntuli. In 2006, he suffered from ear infections and could no longer freely use headphones or listen to music for longer hours. He was adamant and could not give into his doctor’s orders and he was introduced to an entrepreneur Dicky Naidoo who brought him to work as a chief Sound Engineer at one of his studios which he later bought years after. After investing in a recording studio, he worked with lots of musicians including artists such as Bryce Anderson, Dj Sphiwe (Kaya.fm), Mzambiya and Rocio Starry (Spain). He is also the co-founder of the international group Afro Swis which were a crew made up of Joburg and Geneva emcees and poets. In 2007, he established OwnyOwn Music Group where he has since recruited and collaborated with beat-makers, song writers and performers such as Tumi Latrell, King Selpho, Blaque Jesus, TBZ Mafarma, de Original Careless, Sound Illusions and others. He met Pedro Stathoussis at House Afrika Records through Vinny da Vinci and was called by renowned Dj Christos Katsaitis to join their digital distribution network and then that is how his music was introduced to the world.

I'm a drummer and artist who decided to start using my theory background to make the kind of music I would like to listen to, while bringing my unique feel to the table. I hope to have my tracks enjoyed by people around the world! I do everything with an i3, a USB mic and Fl studio 10. I'd love to get signed so I can create with an engineer to mix and give input. I love performing and have been in many bands (drummer mainly, but the occasional vocalist position because of my unique voice) If you have any questions or comments, my personal E-mail is: darkheart.alex@gmail.com I am open to suggestions and collabs
