Kwaito became the music that represented South African township youth. It was the music and culture of the township, the voice and language of the ghetto.
Come the millennium, the beats, the lyrics and how the artists had reached another level. A new era in the Kwaito sound was marked by the arrival of Mandoza. Not only did his album‘Nkalakatha’ sell multi-platinum, the project didn’t sound like any Kwaito that anyone had heard before.
