I think what he meant was that non-hip hoppers also enjoy their stuff, meaning it's friendly to their ears as well. I heard that Anotha Chance track...that is dope...i lyk it. Echoing arithmetic...it wont hurt to hear more of their stuff.

Haaa, Arithmetic, wrt what you say about kwaito...kwaito rocked me more in the BOP and those Trompies' early days...those were the moments, Ibizwe moyeni, Traffic cop..BOP, Magasman-Trompies, Iyoo...even Mawillies o be a rocka with intw'enjani, gagu...eish reminisce! But na manje, abo Brown, Zakes, Zola and Thebe took it to anotha level...it's elevating. SA Music fo sho! Dont care what yáll say bout Kwaito...i listen to it...well most of it! Sika le khekhe... :oops:

O.k i got the wrong end of the stick 4 sure... Kwaito's foreva baba... plus doods are elevating en actually tryna teach through their music take mandoza for example songs like hope, life en all those... I get absoluterly mad when doods try diss kwaito cats... c'mon gents we don't need that bullsh*t... kwaito is slowly becoming a strong vernac hiphop (if u know what i mean)...very very few hiphop artists here will sell over seas rapin' in english... as for kwaito it's gone international... one more big up to Umzolisto :lol: :lol: ZOLA IS THE FUTURE OF KWAITO... now imagine if more new commers were on a conscious tip like ZOLA, WHAT WOULD U CALL THAT.... in one word AMAZING... KWAITO/HIP_HOP foreva mzantsi...

TeeZeR as for that sika lekhekhe sh*t by the so called "king of kwaito".... well the whole of his last album... the dood is backwardz... he's the only guy from the ninties kwaito scene who hasn't added any material to his sh*t (disapointing)... but I still respect the brother he has taken many families out of poverty RESPECT...

lastly... when is sgonondo comming out of jail (arthur helped him record his CD in jail)... I just wanna see the brother make it from nothing... 101 % behind him...

SGONONDO IS THE WORD FOR TODAY GENTS [/size]

Mann, they fooled us again... fuckers[/size]

The true identity of the kwaito artist who has been paraded by Arthur Mafokate's 999 Music stable as a prisoner called Sgonondo is not a jailbird but is in fact out on the streets of Soweto.

And his real name is Jamela Vuma.

City Press today unmasks Sgonondo as a marketing gimmick by Mafokate to sell records on the pretext that the man who has released an album entitled Amadragon is an inmate at Johannesburg prison.

And it is a concept that has been sold - successfully - to a number of newspapers, who have run lead stories claiming to have unmasked the man.

Radio stations, particularly YFM, were also sold the dummy.

On Friday SABC1's music programme One also had an inset of an interview with Sgonondo in which he revealed what he wanted to do when he comes "out of jail".

Mafokate also ran an SMS line last week where fans could send "release Sgonondo" to a certain number, for Correctional Services to approve the alleged prisoner's parole.

But City Press was not fooled. And today we reveal that Sgonondo is not serving any prison term and he did not record his album while he was in jail, as widely claimed by his record company Gallo and his producer Mafokate.

Vuma ( 27) lives in Pimville , Soweto.

He first attempted fame in 2003 when he burst into the music industry with his debut album, Nyakanyaka, released under Mafokate's 999 Music.

Despite the fact that it received extensive airplay, the album, which contained the hit song Ubaba Wam', sold badly .

City Press understands that it was after the dismal performance of Nyakanyaka that Vuma, Mafokate and Gallo Records decided to conceive the Sgonondo concept in a bid to sell more records.

After they released the album last Friday they disguised his face with a balaclava and a cap and lied to the media that he was serving a jail term at Johannesburg Central Prison.

They also said that Sgonondo was waiting for parole approval from prison authorities and would be released in December or January.

But when we could not get answers on when he was arrested and for what crime, we knew things were not as they appeared on the surface.

His album launch was at Bassline in Newtown, Johannesburg, on Tuesday.

Prior to the event, 999 said they did not know if prison authorities would allow Sgonondo to attend the launch of his album.

But he arrived, escorted by "police officers" with a police van showing it was from Johannesburg Central Police.

Sgonondo put up a sterling performance with his hit songs Dudu and Sgonondo. Senior Superintendent Mary Martins-Engelbrecht said they viewed the matter in a serious light because they are not aware of any prisoner from Johannesburg Central Police who was taken out to launch an album. "If this Sgonondo is serving a year's prison sentence at the Johannesburg Central Prison, I suggest that you refer your inquiry to correctional services.

"Prisoners are usually transported by officials from Correctional Services and not the SAPS. The only time that the SAPS transports prisoners from prison, is when they take awaiting-trial prisoners to court,"she said.

Correctional Services spokesperson Manelisi Wolela said: "We instituted preliminary investigations on the so-called Sgonondo, who is alleged to have produced an album while incarcerated for four years for robbery. To date, it seems it is only Mafokate and his record company that have any knowledge of such a person."

Wolela said according to the Johannesburg Centre Management, there was "just no trace of such a person or activities surrounding such a person in our records.

"One trusts that this is not a lie pursued as a marketing gimmick to maximise profit irrespective of the harm it may cause to the society's confidence in the criminal justice system. "

Mafokate said: "Jamela is Jamela and Sgonondo is Sgonondo. And he is going to revive kwaito music. That is all I can say."

Gallo spokesperson Thabiso Khati said: "Gallo signed a lincensing deal with Mafokate knowing that Sgonondo is in jail. So he (Mafokate) is the right person to clarify that."

Eish guys...Can u see why kwaito is constantly dissed?

Gimmicks, gimmicks and more gimmicks. Mzakes, Spykos, Sgonondo.

The sad thing is, real quality kwaito music suffers as a result, and as ive said before..Kwaito is doing for the youth what Mzantzi Hip Hop isnt. Lets be real, the majority of our Hip Hop artists arent saying anything profound....Chuck D said that Hip Hop was,"the black CNN". Niggaz think that conciousness= Backpacks+Multiple syllable words? Get outta here...Gimmicks can eat a dick!!!
