KG Mafia Records back with a bang

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Nkosi­lathi Sibanda Show­biz Cor­re­spon­dent

TOP South African mu­sic record­ing and pro­mo­tion com­pany KG Mafia is open­ing a state-of-the-art stu­dio in Bu­l­awayo’s Thorn­grove sub­urb, a move that will likely boost the city’s wan­ing show­biz scene.

KG Mafia is pop­u­lar for its heart thump­ing beat and cred­ited for pi­o­neer­ing pop mu­sic cul­ture since the late 1990s. They are also touted as the pi­o­neers of a tune that many in the city of Kings called Zim-House.

The record­ing com­pany was the brand be­hind mu­sic troupe GTI which rocked the ra­dio and leisure clubs with the hit song Call GTI, if you want to have fun.

Un­der the same sta­ble also came the pop­u­lar, undis­puted fa­thers of kwaito, GoBoyz. These were the artistes that had a smash­ing, yet ed­uca­tive song ti­tled Asik­wenzi.

Now,on their re­turn, KG Mafia puts an ex­cep­tional cap at a time when most mu­sos in Bu­l­awayo are cry­ing foul at the fact that there are a few record­ing com­pa­nies in the city.

KG Mafia coun­try rep­re­sen­ta­tive DJ DNice Mavala said they had made in­roads in their Thorn­grove mu­sic record­ing project. He said the record­ing stu­dio was meant to give up-and-com­ing artistes an op­por­tu­nity to pro­duce and record high qual­ity mu­sic.

“KG Mafia Records is pleased to an­nounce its re­turn. We’re back with a bang and this time, with a world class mu­sic record­ing and mar­ket­ing stu­dio in Thorn­grove sub­urb.

KG Mafia al­ready has a pres­ence in Botswana and South Africa where its head­quar­tered. KG Mafia chief ex­ec­u­tive Jeff Moyo said their ef­forts were chan­nelled at re­viv­ing young ca­reers that have not had a chance to be recog­nised.
