Sho Madjozi

  • South Africa
  • Champion's league Tsonga hip-hop

A whirlwind of colours, a swirl of sequins, bold lyrics, all the sources that feed Sho Madjozi's universe can be seen in the undulations of her Xibelani skirt. Sho is a Tsonga rapper and honours her origins by mixing hip-hop with Gqom electro, a variation of house with traditional music touches. Dancing to exalted rhythms, Sho moves and raps as if nothing could ever stop her, naturally switching from Xitsonga to Swahili and English. The first millennial rapper from the Tsonga Nation, with her magnetic confidence, her star is set to shine for a long time in the firmament.
