Who is Uhuru?

‘Uhuru’ means freedom and so far, they’ve liberated house-heads all over the country from monotonous music! Watch Uhuru on the SA’s Got Talent results show this Monday, 3 November at 8:30PM. 

They may be the new kids on the block but Uhuru have been making a lot of noise - in a good way. The group is made up of DJ Clap (Sihle Dlalisa), Maphorisa (Themba Sekowe), Mapiano (Nqobile Mahlangu) and Xeli (Xelimpilo Simelane). 

Signed to prolific South African record label, Kalawa Jazmee, Uhuru has produced for and collaborated with the likes of DJ Zinhle, Busiswa, Professor, Dr Malinga and more! The band is relatively new so let the music do the talking for them. 

To know exactly who Uhuru is, listen to these three bangers: 

1. ‘Y-Tjukutja’ is a South African take on ‘Atchu Tchutcha’ by Angolan artist, Yuri Da Cunha.

2. Uhuru produced the award-winning single that became the summer anthem for comeback kids, Mafikizolo.

3. Known as the “Kalawa Chikita,” Busiswa’s hit, ‘Ngoku’, features Uhuru who produced the song.
