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.
Definition of good music comes in different words. Established in 2015 by an underground duo from South Africa; M21 & Khirbet Qeiyafa, Far Yards Records becomes a powerhouse of its own kind. The formation of the label dates back to years of releases and finally the duo deciding to launch something that pretty much explains what they're made of. Not only did the intention aim at raw underground music in general, but to also shape the direction of raw music in South Africa. Far Yards is most known for Acid Jazz, Deep House, Minimal and Left field Chillout Music. Inspiration comes from labels like Bedouin Records, Tartalet, Odd Socks, Money $ex Records, Tsuba, Dantze Baby!, Couch Records, Room With A View, Left of Dial, Boutade Music and much more underground labels. Its well known to dish out songs of long lengths, simple and weird album arts bearing the faded FAR Catalogue number with less artistic effects. The reason remaining simple and onponit, Far Yards imprints its music on old signatures from the old beginning era of music. Signatures of Garage House, Sounds of Kev Brown, Uforscene, J Dilla, 9th Wonder, Justice League, Jazzonova, Larry Heard, Lil Louis etc all have an effect and influence on Far Yards signature. As of 2015, Far Yards houses the music of M21 & Khirbet Qeiyafa and Feloque from South Africa, and keeps to remain exclusive enough with releases formats of MP3/WAV/AAC/MP4 and 33/45 12" hard wax vinyl. Apart from Metadata Releases, Far Yards is active in an podcast profile : TruEaSoul with South African listener and TruEaSoul founder : S'celo Madonsela where every month a podcats of raw music is shared online with friends and available as online stream. Far Yards is a supporter of Anti-Piracy programmes/agencies and as of 2015 signed a petition to have Pirated Music stopped.
