Born 23 years ago in the dusty streets of Soweto, Zaba Ngwenya is steadily making his mark in the rap music game. Formerly known as Venom, this ambitious rapper and aspiring actor has fervently worked at his craft to ensure that when he finally drops, South Africa recognises and sees the hard work he’s put in.
GDIN describes his music as versatile hip hop that aims to accommodate diverse listeners – from the turn-up rap lovers, to the soulful and jazzy enthusiasts. Impressively, he can also spit a rhyme or two in Portuguese and even add a pinch of Jamaican flavour to it.
His unshakable grind saw him win song of the week on the underground site Where is the beef, which resulted in a feature on GauTV, Slaghuis TV and was featuted on Zkhiphani.com online youth magazine.
