Mablerh recently joined T Bose on My Top 10 at 10 where he shared insight into what classics from Luther Vandross and Aretha Franklin mean to him.
With his witty sense of humour at play, Mablerh also had a message for people who think that those born within the 1979 to 1989 period vacate clubs.
“If we leave the clubs, who’s going to buy drinks? We’re the ones spending money in clubs. Please don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.”

Speaking candidly Mablerh opened up about his childhood and the fact that his parents had him quite late.
“My mom had me at the age of 41, so growing up was weird because most of my cousins were in their 50s and 60s. So, yeah don’t do that, have your kids early,” he joked.

His connection with music starts from his childhood and his relationship with his brother who taught him the etiquette of listening to music off a CD with the cover facing you. Which allows you to read about the song and the backstory of the album to truly appreciate the music.
Starting in advertising as a National Accounts Manager, Mablerh left when he realised it just wasn’t fulfilling him. He packed a bag and headed to Johannesburg where he got his first big break under Lelo Boyana, writing for the website Just Curious.
He went on to manage his cousin Minnie Dlamini-Jones and the rest as they say is history.
