A South African Emcee named Bongani Bonase well known as Rheebongs who was born in Thembisa Hospital in Johannesburg and lived in Thokoza then Alex for couple of years until the family decided to immigrate to Cape Town. Stayed in Green Point, Khayelitsha then moved to another township called Delft South in 1998 and it’s currently the same Township Rheebongs resides in.
Rheebongs fell in love with Hip Hop at an early age and began rapping and writing in 2003. After a decade in the music industry Rheebongs has built a name amongst Hip Hop lovers around Western Cape especially Cape Town. In 2009 Rheebongs released his solo project titled Gevaarlik (Afrikaans for Dangerous which completely describes the type of lyricism he possesses) loaded with 17 joints, produced by some of Cape Town’s giants like Backyard Records Mashonisa (including himself). The album was to put the name out there as well as his stories to be heard because he had so much of his personal experiences to share. People loved it and appreciated the effort that had been put in scribbling the album. Rheebongs is part of an award winning crew by the name DSO (Delft South Origins) which was formed in 2003 and was later responsible for the birth of M4M Crew (DSO alongside Slaghuis King Of The Street Rap champ 2012- WP Region, Pincode and still undefeated battlecat, Vegita). Rhee (short for his name) created a huge buzz and a great following for himself in and around the Cape Town underground (including the Eastern Cape region at events like the Grahamstown National Arts Festival) over the past decade thanks to the efforts of the crew and his solo project. He is known by many and is making many appearances on major line-ups and interviews (on radio, TV shows like SABC 2’s youth show- Hectic Nine 9, Q.TV in Grahamstown, as well as Cape Town TV. Newspapers and magazines like Rolling Stone South Africa and Live Magazine SA). The emcee recently dropped an EP Titled Top-Notch (2013) and as expected the skill is off the hinges hence Rheebongs grows from every bar he scribbles. Rheebongs is still part of his crew DSO though, making moves in the game and going stronger than before.
RAD with power. Cape Town based [something] band. Any and all genre suggestions appreciated. Mostly, we like you.
Majola is a dated voice emerging within Africa, he is openly gay and tackles all issues concerning sexual orientation through music and his home language of Xhosa. his approach brings the debate of homosexuality back home and also contributes to language preservation. His acoustic soul/jazz approach adds to the emotion to which he delivers his material with.

While the name may cause you to think of three large tattooed men, the band actually only consists of two, rather-small, tattooed men, Danilo Queiros and Adrian Culhane, and a very lovely lead lady: Chantel Van T. An intricate, but seemingly effortless, mix of electronic synths with live instruments. Mesmerizing vocal melodies flirt with dark bass-lines and hip-hop influenced drumbeats.
