Mzekezeke

Mzekezeke

Profile:
Hugely popular and masked kwaito singer from the South African township of Tembisa, north-east of Johannesburg.

He stormed into the public’s consciousness in 2002 as a mysterious voice on YFM Radio who would regularly phone famous kwaito artists, producers and TV actors -- and then harass them live on air. "He was a voice for the voiceless and said things people were afraid to say or had no platform to say." "His hilarious imitations of the average South African broken-English-speaking township person earned him a major following." When asked about a flight from Johannesburg to Heathrow, he replied, "We go very nice and get here very safe."

Signed to TS Records, Mzekezeke picked up the "Artist Of The Year" and "Song Of The Year" SAMA Awards in 2003.

Although the identity of the man wearing overalls and a balaclava remains unknown, rumours abound that it's the same person as his own label manager, DJ Sbu.
