The rapper we can’t stop listening to
Sho Madjozi’s music is much like her image: fresh, bold and exciting. She is the embodiment of African hip hop, and testament to the incredible talent brewing on the continent. ‘I heard Sho Madjozi before I saw her,’ says Helen Herimbi, African music a cionado and host of lays on Touch H . ‘My iTsonga is limited but as soon as J Maphorisa’s robleme , featuring Sho kicked in, I understood that she was declaring her independence as a fun loving, super y girl. Then I saw her and nodded: she’s right.’ Although her music is accessible and easy to listen to, it is also culturally signi cant, as this dynamic woman is bringing the iTsonga language to the forefront of entertainment and has grounded its future in music. Sho Madjozi is just one of Helen’s picks for July, see who else is on her playlist on the next page.
