One of the most exciting act to come out of South Africa in recent years. A rising star from rural Limpopo who shot to fame after featuring in the hit track Gqi by OkmalumkoolKat in 2017, she has since release tracks with Dj Maphorisa, Khuli Chana, Ghanaian artist Wanlov, Ms Cosmo and others. Her single Dumi hi Phone with PS DJz went viral, gaining her a growing following from all over the country. The song has sat at the number 1 spot on several local radio stations and enjoys play abroad.
While she calls herself a rapper she can often be found flexing her impeccable flows on Gqom beats. Famous for bringing Xitsonga to the mainstream and for her exhilarating performances in which she wears a colorful Tsonga dancing skirt, Xibelani, Sho Madjozi has played the biggest shows in the country this year including Castle Lite unlocks, AfroPunk, Rocking the Daisies, Major League Gardens, iRock, Trace Roots and FillupFNBStadium, Black Coffee Block Party and Metro FM Heat Wave amongst others.
In late 2017, Absolut vodka SA spotted the young star and made her one of their new Creative Revolutionaries.
Her explosive rise to fame has left many wondering how she has made traditional culture so cool. She settled it well in a TV interview where when asked how she can embrace her culture and still be that cool she responds, “I don’t think the question is how can I still be cool while rocking my culture, there is nothing cooler than being African right now” and her whole movement proves it.
