Multi-talented Freestate born afro-soul singer, songwriter and producer Maxhoba (MAX-HOBA) Maponya, is a breath of fresh air to the local music scene. His sound is a beautifully blended fusion of traditional African melodies, with a twist of modern harmonies. This talented vocalist is also an experienced voice over artist and workshop facilitator. His journey to Johannesburg in pursuit of musical accomplishments led to his meeting with one of SA’s award winning Hip Hop artists, Hip Hop Pantsula (HHP). Together they worked on HHP’s albums Maftown, Omang Reloaded, YBA to NW and Acceptance Speech and created some of HHPâ€™s top hits. He has over the years worked with other highly acclaimed artists like Amu, Morafe, Shugasmaxx, Don Laka, Pebbles and Kabomo. 2006 saw Max-hoba join HHP’s band for the Africa is Calling tour of Germany. It was this experience that lead to him stepping out on his own to cement his solo career. In 2010 Max-hoba released his debut album titled Making History. This Urban African Soul album blends his musical influences and deals with life, love, daily living and celebrates all that happens under the African sun and beyond.
