Mpho M aka Mpho Malgas, started in music in 2002. He was working on community film project in 2002; the movie needed music as a sound track. After he was turned down by local artists to have their music on his project, he decided to record his own music and in December 2002 he released a single with his first ever group Blast – Kasi 4 eva
In 2003 it was tough for the group to sustain its presence on the market, and the band members decided to quit. Mpho went on to use his short term experience to work on supporting other musicians locally.
