South African Rap Star Sho Madjozi reveals her brand new mixtape ‘What A Life‘ featuring nine-tracks
The global rap star Sho Madjozi releases her latest nine-track mixtape, What A Life. A celebration of individuality, it is a fusion of gqom, Afro-pop and the fast and exciting wave of new-age Xitsonga pop, proving that while you can take the girl out of the village, you certainly can’t take the village out of the girl.
The new mixtape ‘What A Life‘ gives us a confident and vibrant Sho Madjozi. It dives deep into the sounds of her birthplace in Limpopo, in Northern South Africa. This time around, Sho spins universal rhymes about love, friendship, dance, and, for the first time, insight into her recent globetrotting success, with a sneak peek into the whirlwind few years the trendsetting Afro-pop songstress has had.
This is a project that champions the idea of embracing who you are, and is a brilliant showcase of what you can be when you are proud of where you are from.
In the new mixtape we mark some of the highlights that include the cheeky socio-political commentary of “DiHawks”, the vibey hard-hitting anthem “Sena Ala”, and the electrifying Xitsonga dance hits “Amajoy” and “January.” Perhaps the most noteworthy is “Shahumba” featuring the legendary Tsonga singer and producer, Dr Thomas Chuake, in his first-ever collaboration.
