Mashayabhuqe's Plea To End

Taxi Violence

Mashayabhuqe KaMamba’s first introduction to us came in the form of “The Black Excellence Show”, released in 2013. This easily presented him as a pioneer of a new South African sound with a clear absence of any musical clichés.

His latest single titled “KwaDukuza” brings close attention to the taxi violence in his hometown. The song is driven by the harsh conditions that visit the small town named Stanger/ KwaDukuza (situated in the north coast of Kwa Zulu Natal). This town is where Mashaya’s mother’s side of the family resides, his connection with it may be also linked to it housing King Shaka Zulu’s tomb.

The record boasts a seductive bassline, which finds it being a prominent driving force of the song. Mashayabhuqe’s use of auto-tune continues to give the sound a modern feel, accompanied by his renowned high-pitched scream-like adlibs to create a crisp and intense piece of music. “The taxi violence has taken so much from the community and the record carries a message, a plea, sending questions to the universe trying to find answers.“

Mashayabhuqe has become an unstoppable individual over the passed 3 years. With his recent feature in the Afropunk Festival line up alongside fellow South African musician Petite Noir. We are excited to see what he has in-store for us in 2017.
