MarazA on Expresso

Rapper, composer, producer, writer and all round musician, Maraza, recently joined us in the studio to give us performances that got everyone in studio and watching at home on their feet.

S’phamandla Mhlongo aka Maraza, discovered his love for hip hop music when he was just 12 years old. He gained recognition around Jo’burg and Durban as a battle rapper and intricate poet before starting out his career as part of known rap collective ‘Just Dat!’. He went on to tour around the country with the group, where they were known for their hits such as “Ayeye” and “Beng’ngazi.”
in 2008 he beat out thousands of other upcoming rappers to become Jam Alley’s first Versus’ Champion. He also took part in the South African part of the Channel O MC Africa 2 competition, for which he became the South African champion and came in third place, in Africa.

He released one of the biggest songs of 2016, ‘Gwan’, which was part of his debut album ‘Blind’, which he produced and engineered most of the songs himself. Gwan is the song that launched Maraza into mainstream success, due to his unique Sfana flow. The song received over 200 000 online downloads, as well as receiving well over 500 000 YouTube. Since then he has featured on multiple chart climbing

Maraza is also a television personality having presented Headrush, on Channel O, as well as Geleza Nathi, and Bona Retsang, both on SABC1.
