Friday SA Music Spotlight - Ninja
Ninja, recently signed to independent label Sotho Mafia and is currently recording his debut album.
Not having any expertise in the Kwaito/Hip Hop/Hard Ass Rap genre, I asked for some input from the label. Here is the reply, directly from the keyboard of the artist ...
“Don’t get it twisted I'm not your average mreppa.Eazy just, that dude, mr see ha ke go feta. Life is too short to wait. So I’m always on the move Get I right.im here for good I’ll never go back. I didn’t build this city but I want my own plek. Yeah another Maftown rapper.Tshepiso,Ninja,Mixed Breed...Funny how u turn a hobby into a career. I don’t wat the first hip hop track I heard was. but what I do know is I've been into it for bells. from the time I was called "lemy man" to "lehipi" to "lenigga" now ke "mreppa".MHS where I started spitting at school shows. and then formed a crew "Sotho Mafia”. which is now the record label I run with. Now with all the fooling around it got crazy when I recently featured on Morafe's 2nd album "a e ne",9mm logo...alongside some of Maftowns sickest mc'z.K.T,Thainouko and Gomez...I was recently approached by glen sebeelo (my producer,skeem sa ka) to work with him on my album. Then went to Cape Town where I worked with Lungelo.Im ready to take ova.me,I follow the birds.up.Now,tswala matlho,relax n breath.”
