Born and raised in Katlehong, East of Johannesburg, Makwa talking about his new album, lawsuits, Kwesta & ‘Rap Life’ drama on The Ultimate Kaya959 Top30 with Dj Keyez.
Making headlines over the past few months, Makwa lays it all bare on The Ultimate Kaya 959 Top 30 with DJ Keyez.
The popular music producer who’s known for churning out hit tracks for AKA, Bucie Nkomo, DJ Fistas, Touchline, JR, and Kwesta to name a few hit back at artists for withholding his payment.
In May, Makwa took to Instagram live to share how Kwesta, DJ Maphorisa, MFR Souls, and Ms Cosmo hadn’t paid him a cent.
The father of 2 is tired of being treated like a doormat in an industry he helped build.
His story is one that is all too familiar in the South African music industry.
In this video, he addresses his claims on not being paid a cent by the artists for songs he worked on. Kwesta’s successful album Dakar II, produced by him, DJ Maphorisa, and others. Unpaid drama aside, Makwa has a new album out, 16S91 which dropped in September. This is his first project under his record label Mzonkonko Records.
