Soliloquy Slq


The following bio is an account of the music career of Mr. Zwanga Leo Tyelbooi who is better known in the music industry by the pseudonym Soliloquy Slq. Soliloquy Slq is a rapper, producer, singer, songwriter and entrepreneur who has recently started his own independent entertainment company and is based in the South of Johannesburg.

Mr. Zwanga Leo Tyelbooi was born in 1987 on the 12th of August and first discovered his passion for music in 2001 when he started attending high school at St. Barnabas College in Bosmont, Johannesburg. During this time he played the piano and was trained in classical music.

The pseudonym Soliloquy Slq, comes from his love for the Dramatic Arts which was a subject he studied during his high school years and the term “soliloquy” was used often in his Drama class. He liked the poetic aspect of the name and the uniqueness of it which saw him take it up as his rap alias.

His passion to create music began when he first discovered his love for writing poetry in 2006 and attended weekly poetry sessions in La Rochelle, South of Jhb which also included music sessions where participants would perform including himself. During this time he was also recording with a local rap group called Southern Lunatics. The group Southern Lunatics started his music recording career and he learned various skills such as recording, producing etc from the act and performed in various local events in the South of Jhb and central Jhb with them. He left the group in 2011 due to differing interests that arose with time.

His departure from the group saw him begin his own solo career as he began producing his debut album Silhouette in 2011. A friend of his helped him acquire studio time from a sound engineer by the name of Mr. Tebello Ramza Ramaipato in a studio in Braamfontein, Jhb. This eventually led to Soliloquy Slq working with the now late sound engineer who was highly instrumental in recording Soliloquy Slq’s album, Mr. Vusumuzi Dumakude.

Vusumuzi "DJ Theatrical" Dumakude produced the songs "Poem to a deaf girl" and "Driven" as part of his contribution to the project which saw "Poem to a deaf girl" being chosen as the lead single for the album due to the interesting title that Mr. Dumakude had for the song.

The album was recorded with the help of Mr. Eliezer "Casper" Lionel Hilmer (X Factor SA S1 1st Runner Up), as the lead male singer and Ms.Nokhanya "Khanyi" Sisilana, as the lead female singer/rapper on the album (affiliated with Khayalethu Records, where the album was recorded). Soliloquy Slq, has since been promoting the album through performances in various places around Jhb, radio submissions and social media etc.

The drive to promote this album and also generate an income from his music saw him start his own entertainment company on the 12th of April 2016 which is named God First Entertainment (Pty) Ltd in honour of God who he believes...
