TWO ambitious Bulawayo-born hip-hop artistes, Madodana “Madots” Nyathi and Pride “PmDee” Mhandu, have dropped their debut single titled Pork Chops.
The youthful singers released their hip-hop/R&B fusion last week and are set to launch it in Bulawayo early next month.
Nyathi (28) born and raised in the high density suburb of Nketa — told Southern Eye Lifestyle that the track was meant to encourage artistes to love each other and work together so as to develop the showbiz industry.
“Pork Chops is a hip-hop/R&B song which encourages artistes to love each other because hatred has negative effects to arts development,” he said.
“We want our colleagues in the music industry to be inspired and bring positive change to the arts industry by working as a family.”
Nyathi, whose music career dates back to 2001, has been performing at street shows and social gatherings, nurturing his music talent.
Last year he participated at Bulawayo’s first hip-hop competition Da-Grape-Vine.
Mhandu (23) on the other hand began his music career when he was a teenager, winning an award for being the best poet at his primary school when he was only seven-years old.
It was his passion for poetry that catapulted him into a career in music releasing singles such as Legendary and Street Mafia in 2012.
“My music defines who I am. My life experiences are reflected in every word that I spit. I love hip-hop because I am free to express myself and what I stand for,” Mhandu said.
The upcoming singers who envisage releasing an album this year are members of hip-hop outfit Kasilami Art Platform under the tutelage of popular hip-hop producer Polite Sithole.
