Big Zulu’s Inkabi Nation Issues An Official Thank You Statement To Mzansi

Big Zulu’s label Inkabi Nation issues a thank you note to Mzansi for all the support in 2020.

When Reggae star, Koffee sings “gratitude is a must” we know she’s saying the right thing. It has been a joy ride to the top this year for Mzansi rapper and actor, Big Zulu. He has recorded a lot of success with his music and he’s already closing the year in a huge way.

In a statement shared on Instagram, Zulu’s record label, Inkabi Records thanked Mzansi for the support they received this year. The label had a lot of success with songs released by Big Zulu and their first signed artist, Mduduzi Nqube.

Zulu’s hit song “Mali Eningi” featuring Riky Rick and Intaba Yase Dubai has become a massive success. It is said to have saved SA Hip Hop in a time many said the genre needed saving. It also records over 1 million views each week exceeding even the label’s expectation. Shout out to them.

A CALL TO INKABI NATION & THE HIP HOP NATION

WE WANT TO SINCERELY THANK ALL OF YOU FOR THE OVERWHELMING SUPPORT THAT WE
RECEIVED IN 2020.

WE HAD QUITE A REMARKABLE YEAR WITH MOST OF OUR WORK BEING WELL RECEIVED AND
SUPPORTED BY ALL THE FANS AND INDUSTRY PEERS.

WE BEGAN THE YEAR WITH THE AMA MILLION REMIX WHICH FEATURED KWESTA, YOUNGSTA
CPT, ZAKWE AND MUSIHOLIQ, THE SONG DID INCREDIBLY WELL REACHING OVER 1 MILLION
YOUTUBE VIEWS AND PEAKED IN THE TOP 3 ON THE HIP HOP ITUNES CHARTS. WE THEN FUR-
THER WENT TO RELEASE ISIGINCI BY MDUDUZI NQUBE WHO IS THE FIRST ARTIST TO BE SIGNED
UNDER INKABI RECORDS. THE SONG PEAKED NO.1 ACROSS ALL GENRES ON THE ITUNES
CHARTS AND IS JUST ABOUT TO REACH 2MILLION VIEWS ON YOUTUBE. IN THE LAST QUARTER
OF THE YEAR WE RELEASED VUMA DLOZI FEATURING MNQOBI YAZI WHICH PEAKED NO.1 ON
THE !TUNES HIP HOP CHARTS AND RECEIVED OVER 2 MILLION YOUTUBE VIEWS.

TO CLOSE OF THE YEAR WE THEN RELEASED MALI ENINGI FEATURING RIKY RICK AND INTABA
YASE DUBAI. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN NEXT EXCEEDED OUR OWN EXPECTATIONS, THE RECORD
SMASHED ALL RECORDS, CLIMBING STRAIGHT TO THE TOP OF ALL THE DIGITAL PLATFORMS, IN-
CLUDING BEING THE FIRST HIP HOP RECORD IN THE PAST 2 YEARS TO SIT NO.1 ON THE APPLE
MUSIC CHARTS AND THE FIRST HIP HOP RECORD TO REACH NO.1 ON THE SPOTIFY CHARTS. THE
SUPPORT WE RECEIVED FROM THE ENTIRE COUNTRY THROUGH THE #DUDUZANICHALLENGE
AND #MALIENINGICHALLENGE WAS OVERWHELMING AND MUCH APPRECIATED,
THIS DEFINITELY PROPELLED THE SONG FORWARD.

THE SINGLE CONTINUES TO GROW, SITTING AT NO.1 ON THE RADIO AND TV CHARTS AND ALSO
GROWING AT AN INCREDIBLE 1 MILLION VIEWS PER WEEK ON YOUTUBE, ALSO REACHING GOLD
STATUS WITHIN 3 WEEKS OF ITS RELEASE.

AT A TIME WHERE MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN CRITICIZING THE CURRENT POSITION OF S.A HIP
HOP, AND SOME EVEN CALLING IT THE END DAYS OF S.A HIP HOP, THEY COULD HAVE NEVER
BEEN SO WRONG AS THE INKABI NATION AND THE HIP HOP NATION HAVE STOOD FIRM AND
PROVED THAT S.A HIP HOP STILL REMAINS A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH AND IS NOT GOING
ANYWHERE.

MALI ENINGI HAS CAME IN WHERE HIP HOP WAS WRITTEN OFF TO PROVE ALL CRITICS WRONG.
AS LONG AS ONE STAYS TRUE TO HIS ROOTS AND GIVES PEOPLE AUTHENTIC AND AFRICAN
MUSIC, WE WILL NEVER LOSE. THE SUCCESS OF MALI ENINGI IS A LIVING TESTAMENT THAT S.A
HIP HOP IS HERE TO STAY AND REMAIN A DOMINANT FORCE.

THERE IS ONE MORE MAJOR STEP THAT HIP HOP NEEDS TO ACHIEVE IN 2020 AND THAT IS TO
VOTE AND MAKE MALI ENINGI SONG OF THE YEAR IN 2020, THIS MILESTONE HAS NEVER BEEN
ACHIEVED BY ANY HIP HOP ARTIST BEFORE AND THIS YEAR WE ASK ALL LOVERS OF SA MUSIC
PARTICULARLY THE INKABI AND HIP HOP NATION TO STAND TOGETHER IN SOLIDARITY AND
BRING THE SONG OF THE YEAR HOME.

FOR MALI ENINGI TO BE SONG OF THE YEAR ON THE UKHOZI FM CHARTS SMS ‘INGOMA D’ TO
33665 , VOTE AS MANY TIMES AS YOU CAN. IT’S TIME TO MAKE IT COUNT.

SOUTH AFRICA LETS MAKE HIP HOP GREAT AGAIN.
