MAWIZA

Bio

Some say Kwaito Music is dead, but Mawiza full name Mokone Wally Molete (28) believes he can resuscitate the dying genre through fusing the old-school Mzansi so und with the modern sound, Gqom, Mapiano, Hip-Hop, Trap and Soul. His first singles proudly nfana kasi and samsokolo are well on their way to being club anthems. Signed under First Bite Entertainment, Mawiza says all his songs tell stories of those living in the townships. “My music transcends racial lines wether you are poor or rich, the music still gives you a pleasant experience of the township” here says. The upcoming musician’s passion for music has seen him perform in nightclubs and festivals across the country. His birth place of Kutlwanong under the Matjhabeng Municipality is proud to call him one of their own. Mawiza is inspired by old-school musicians, Kabelo, Mzambiya, Msawawa, Mshoza and young artists Cassper Nyovest, Kwesta, Blaklez and K.O.” All those artists have taken a small concept and idea and have travelled the world. They are dedicated and committed to making people dan ce and learn”. He says The first time he was in a recording studio was in 2006 when he first asked his parents for R150. 00 so he can go record a song with one of the guys who was already pursuing music then in his community. The excitement, joy and amazing feeling of the day is what he can never forget till to date. He got to perform the song at his high school’s valentine’s ball and at the community hall where both the reaction for him was great and off stage his friends and peers kept on congratulating him on the song. His music is of the people and about the people for the people hence the proudly nfana kasi w hich means, A proud township boy. He is signed under his own company called First Bite Entertainment and plans to be not only a success in music but in business too. He wants to become a big influential artist and breakthrough the boarders.
