Once upon a time, they were obscure musicians and it appeared like no one was interested in them and in their music. All that’s changed now, though. But how did it happen?
DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small gave all the answers in a recent appearance on the show Crowning Moments.
According to Kabza De Small, before he became famous, he was a hustler who, in his teenage years, cut grass and fixed sewage drain for a living. He also worked for the municipality.
DJ Maphorisa spoke about selling sweets at school and making R150 daily. He had delved into gambling but quit when it almost ruined his life.
The sad tales are in the past for Kabza De small and DJ Maphorisa, who are today collectively known as the Pino Kings, a reference to their work of the sam titled as well as their contributions to amapiano music.
Today, the two musicians are internationally famous, and it’s hard to discuss South African music without somehow mentioning their names.
Not just their lives; their wardrobes have improved remarkably as well. Now, besides their music, the two musos are famous for their love of designers, especially Gucci.
