Had the pleasure of interviewing Sniper before he drops his anticipated mixtape DDANDD.
Who is sniper? Well I’ll just give a general description more details in the interview:
He is one of the up and coming indie artists a new wave that is still in it’s early stages in South Africa.
By indie i mean “independent” and how do i know him?
Well i got the chance to go and be his photographer one time at a album launch or was it a mixtape😞? well it was hosted by J-Smash and Sniper was suppose to perfom but didn’t get the chance to, Due to complications and how hostile the crowd got…well to put it in proper terms there were technical issues….but this kid was so eagered even with the issues the boy pushed and pushed it just couldn’t happen.
From that experience i got proof to start believing in the Drive the young homie has and so i came up with a plan to contribute to the anticipation of his tape dropping on the 9th of November 2018 read the details below;

For anyone who don’t know you just give me a brief description of who sniper is also include Full names
i feel that would be very neccesary

My name is Ndamulelo Tony Matala.
Sniper is just a kid from the hood with big dreams and aims to inspire and help others chase their dreams.

Which hood?

I’m from waterval

You know there are a number of “Watervals” around the World right? Hit me with coordinates

Africa/South Africa/Limpopo/Vhembe Destrict/Elim/Waterval

Owh the 015…that’s dope thats dope but since you an artist how many artirst from that hood u know are killing it ? And how u plan on killing it too?

I KNOW 2 that are killing it Dala Fam and Roy Machel,
I plan on paving my own path and just setting myself aside from them as in growing in my own way.

I hope you succeed on your quest man wishing you all the best now that we have covered the intro lets get to business ;
DREAMS DELAYED ARE NOT DREAMS DENIED enlighten us on this EP
what is it about? And what does it mean to you and your journey?

Well for some time i have had ups and very serious downs
so basically Dreams Delayed Are Not Dreams Denied it’s me telling anyond that has thoughts of giving up that your time will come patience and hard work is key

Damn that’s a very touching subject especially since the recent passing of HHP (may his soul rest eazy🙏)

HHP’s passing is sad but it also gave me life.
Anyday life can roll the dice on you
so everyday you wake up alive is another chance to chase your dreams.

✊ i feel you my G….moving along
how many tracks are in the EP?

Honestly I’m not quite sure yet, could be 12 or more or even less😆

Lol but are you sure about it dropping on the 9th? That’s the millon dollar question

yes yes i am very sure!

Alright alright any features we should look foward to?

Yes i have Roy Machel a nigga of mine and Dala Fam on the project…more surprises dont wanna jinx it just wait..

Awesome awesome this is about to be lit just wanted to keep this young interview short just to give your fans and fans to be some insight.
Any final words?
A quote Maybe ?

Date 30 March 2017.

It’s a beautiful Wednesday night, we at Joe’s Pub I’m sipping on castle lager and a performance by Mash is taking place right in front of my eyes….”damn if only I had a girl right next to me this would be a perfect setting”

 During his performance  (mash performs this one song which sounds more like a fusion of gospel and R&B Bro me and my crew  went bananas! It was lit literally (lol not with fire but with disco lights 😅)…

and as we turn up one of my clique members pull through with this other thick mami yho yho yho! I almost died.

she was dressed in torn jeans,crop  top, and some trainers 👕👖👟

her face her body PERFECT!  She a 7 outta 10 well done William 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏. 

Okay back to the more important stuff so I took my wine glass went to the Vip section where Mash was located I greeted the brother and his circle after that I requested to interview him also told him about the blog and everything then I was  refared to  his manager.

Man no lie this guy has one of the coolest managers ever.

im the type of person who like people who are understanding and reasonable this brother was all that we even had a good chat about my future ideas for CAVA THE COMBO (Google it).

So the brother allowed me to interview mash after a 30min good long convo read below:

describe what u do? e.g is it only music that you do

You wanna know what I do? Ok look I’m trying to start something as an artist and at the moment it doesn’t have a name yet , it’s maturing into something people haven’t discovered yet.

I’m trying to take Shangaan/Xitsonga music to the world .

I remember when I came to Gauteng  and all I saw was my people (Shangaan ) hiding who they really are “Tsonga” all I saw was people acting like zulu pantsulas some yizo yizo type of stuff!

 So as a human  you adapt and I also adapted to that type of lifestyle and when I went back home I finessed on everybody by acting like a city boy and talking that zulu vernec. 

But with time I had to just embrace myself so what I’m doing is very necessary mash is my name, it’s my surname that’s my father…and everything you hear here its all me , self engineered, written, composed, produced, sung.

I’m an all in one package. I don’t need anybodies input I feel God speaks to me directly same thing with situations I connect with them directly.

where you from? 

RIP to my pop’s it’s been 3years since we lost him, he was a teacher both  parents  but my mom is still around so for them to be accepting of the  craft I’m doing it was hard because as a teacher you can’t be out there wanting other people’s children to be stable in life e.g  be a Dr, nurse etc but your child is none of those things you must lead by example.

For me it’s not about admiring or looking up to R Kelly it’s a calling…and one thing I know when I say goodbye to this earth and transcend to heaven people will remember me for bringing something different something unique.

what are your future plans? 
To die  a legend. (Let’s take a 30sec moment of silence to honour that )

It’s to show everyone from my background “village” that where you come from doesn’t necessarily define you as long as you understand what you want together with  your  purpose.

how I’m doing this?  I already started a movement called “classy village kings and Queens” (check your Facebook). 

So all I’m saying is everybody is classy it’s a mental state not material things.

I think from what I’ve accomplished thus far you can rate me higher than most.

I feel I’m living my dream right now as we speak as long as they understand that it’s possible they must celebrate that. 

Also I’ve been thinking about acting  and venturing into reality TV I wanna show you we not just polygan we Tsongas are very talented 

how good is your fanbase? 
What I know Is a good following does exist for me because if  we talking Tsonga music I’m part of the top five dead or alive greatest! !

 Also I won an award by munghanalonene fm  for best R&B/HIP HOP 2013  this is one of the reasons that define kuri people understand what I’m doing  there’s only one mash and they’ll be never be another.

my music is about  lessons I’m trying to teach.

 If you wanna feel loved ill teach you love, heart broke I’ll comfort you and if it’s church you wanna go ill take you there! I don’t have a genre I do whatever at God’s request💪💪💪💪💪

for any one who doesn’t trust their dream   e.g if I want to be a presenter or an musician or actor let me say part of the entertainment biz but doubt themselves what advise u have for them? 

People will always talk,  people will bring you down and  laugh at you.

You need to be patient and let God don’t rush this no matter how talented you are, rush it you will bump into the wrong people and hit the ground so hard it’ll be hard to get back up. 

Believe in yourself and your craft

talent from limpopo one.

Music

C-siders!!!!!

READ THE INTERVIEW BRO😤😤😤😤😥😥😥😧

What  do u guys do exactly ? e.g is it only music that you do. ….

Ezzi:

GELEGELE vatayi tiva namunthla! 

funny enough when I met Dala Fam he was busy with Kid Nino clothing and I was on AMU(ambitious minds unite )it felt  like the  the lost brothers have found each other 
Dala: 

can I enterupt,  it’s more than music it’s a movement! 

Ezzi:

Thank you! 🙌👏👏👏

Dala:

look at motswako HHP started that brand a long time ago look at him now his far and he put niggas like morafe Khuli Chana Cassper Nyovest on.

Makheveza:

actually this is a Tsonga Movement it doesn’t really matter which genre we doing. 

Do you know what gelegele means? 

its a slogan for our brand “C-siders” it means anything cool e.g if you think a polo vivo is cool or that girls ass then it’s a gelegele.

where you from?



Makheveza:

We working on a mixtape and the title of the single we coming out with soon is Marhumbeni, this track will explain about where we come from in Giyani/Malamulele/Nthlaveni block C which we call C-sider

Ezzi:

we don’t even have a music  background

but we doing this music is more like a village hobbie it’s also a lifestyle 

everybody is pushing genres we pushing the lifestyle 

Makheveza;

remember the track with uhm…A kwaito Song we recorded I talked about this.

Ezzi:

where we come from its full of poverty like for real Bro it’s like when u listen to our songs you understand and feel how we feel.

We are no cheese boys Bro. 

Dale Fam:

being from Waterval the Hood when it comes to the entertainment bissness honestly there’s no one to look up to its like If you want to make music or art or anything related to that people will look at you funny like “are you serious about life ?” and that time your so fucking serious  lol they’ll be like 

“iri nigga rele America ro Nyakata bruku” I grew up like that….where I am right now is an obsolute achievement.

Ezzi:

all in all Bro if you from limpopo and you doing the music that I’m doing  no matter where you come from we all have our struggles since C siders joined forces with Dala we all got the same vision…funny enough when we start spitting in Tsonga they go crazy. ..We make music for the hood with the hood by the hood.

what are your future plans? 

Ezzi:

We wanna make a documentary 

Dala:

yes we were actually discussing that  earlier 

Ezzi:

This year if we don’t blow up we give up ! because I’ve just met a couple of Pakistans so I swear I’m gonna blow up (that’s a punchline)

Dala:

we just wanna see Tsonga Rap on the Map we want this recognision we are capable of anything Bro. 

Makheveza:

honestly as Tsonga people we don’t have support for each other 
how good is your fanbase? 

Ezzi:
since hi huma  aMagelegeleni they don’t really fuck with us also we pushing twitter more than Facebook. 

have u noticed with Facebook you have a lot of people from home and they sleeping on you but twitter anybody who fuck with you fucks with you and they loyal.

Twitter  knows your music Facebook knows you.

and we here they thinking we Savages lol we organised Savages though.

mina nkuli hi Mabibi! 

oh and you get our music on our Facebook page 

C-siders 

Makheveza:

our first mixtape was Tsonga Trap Music  we coming with another one soon also the music is free.

Ezzi:

I can’t share our Soundcloud because yalll will love us too much.

for any one who doesn’t trust their dream   e.g if I want to be a presenter or an musician or actor let me say part of the entertainment biz but doubt themselves what advise u have for them? 

Dala:

Me coming from where I’m from my own mom doubted me about doing this music thing 

one thing I can advise you is don’t let anything discourage you.

One thing I learnt is that once you value your own opinions man…They can all suck a Dick!!!🍆🍆🍆

as long as you fuck with your own shit fuck what they say.

Ezzi:

First thing I’d like to say is “GELEGELE💃💃💃💃💃”

we were rappers before we evolved into  trappers we make Tsonga Trap it’s no difference from what they making 

if you get support from home you’ll be bigger than  better we all have to do what we have to do before we do what we want to do let that stick to your heart.

there’s no support if  you sound like someone else only if you sound like you 

bruh I’m sure in my neighbourhood there’s kids who can mack me when it comes to bars but if fans got my back and they in denial ain’t no way that’s happening.

people mess with what they understand.

“I had to switch my style up and people thought I grew weaker ” and I didn’t  I saw a business move and I took it.

what is our subject today well its the  latest  playlist of my most played music on my device please don’t sleep on these artists my request is for you to stop listening to too much radio music and just stay online surfing these artists I mean that’s how I got to discover most of these artist *NB

starting of the tables 

Champagne69 

 

this a hip hop duo all the way from the rainbow nation ( RSA )…they’ve been outchea pushing their stuff for quite a while now they got cameos on that Sawce music video by Frank casino ft Priddy Ugly  YouTube it fam , pratrickXXLee featured them on his singles Punk shit and Wrong one (music video is hella lit by the way ) and now they dropped champain Bro this joint is hella even BELAIRE the champagne brand had to recognise and from my sources I hear they dropping the music video soon so look out for that.

DALA FAM

one of my favourite Tsonga entertainers I ain’t gonna say rapper because homie is also a producer and host events and manages them too….but yeah this brother is definitely a definition of PUSHING I’ve been bumping his stuff lowkey and I have to say mxm whatever is coming his way which is success of course he deserves all of it this brother has been hustling yho….He has been on radio stations promoting events for a while now, he even got to perform his version of hell nah with the man himself NASTY C now tell me if that’s not a booster for your CV?? more like 5points out of 10…

homie is also shooting a music video so lookout for that .

ESPACIO Dios

probably my favourite south African vocalist. ..His EP of course Backseat Galaxy which most of yall are sleeping on is Booming it’s too wavy, too delicious,  to nice and too much just go to your iTunes or Play store and search for it,just know I told you so.

my views on the homie ?uhm I’d say his a fusion of Frank ocean,The weekend and 6lack but nah i don’t wanna give you high expectations Wena all you have to do is Google the kid.

CAVA THE COMBO 

ah my group. …They already dropped an EP with 5 tracks lol you should listen to the outro it’s too brazy. Well this is another Duo but they too wavy because music is not the only focus for them they do designs, artworks, clothing directing and photography well these are a summary of some of  the cool stuff they do . But they still on the come up trying to coqouer the streets of Gaunteng and South Africa as a whole for taking over the world look just go online and look for them .

No disappointments here.

GATOR

  

I wonder how would this guy feel if I called him a fuckboy who fucks with alotta La flame sound? mmmh but anyway the kid is fresh after I bumped Overseas and Grow Up i had to  recommend him to my friends and yes he did not disappoint cause his shit is way to wavy , trippy man its just too much. I really wonder if we will ever receive music videos for these singles because they are really really good and by the way Champagne69 put me on this kid just go to instagram or sound cloud you’ll find him.

look man there’s plenty of artist to mention 

right now

It’s a beautiful Monday isn’t it? if you don’t agree I guess the blues got you but don’t worry we also got you.

For anyone who doesn’t know the meaning of sleeping is let me elaborate 

sleeping

To ignore, overlook, or to forget something. Used as a verb, to sleep on something. Overlooking something that is deemed good or tight.

“Yall can sleep on the Steelers. They finna take it all this year.” honestly as I typed this i was sleeping on alotta stuff e.g these afrikaans/Mexican/Chinese artists and some topics like religion and politics Ey we all have prefarence don’t blame me.
but I got a few artist and brands I feel yall won’t have to sleep on for long. 
Sángo 

this is a producer from the USA and damn bruh he already has more than 5 projects under his discography honestly this cat I put him in the  top 10 of best producers  

You  know who put me on? Mr 1802.
Mr 1802



speaking of which Mr 1802 made the list again why? cause i appreciate art so much. I remember when I got to interview him the first time from right then we started linking up I don’t know might even hire this kid to photograph my launch and my upcoming party in july/August ….I’m sure homie has matured and  his photographer is just on a next level now and probably got paid a lot too . All the best to you Mr 1802.

KID NINO 



I once had that mentality of not messing with stuff from around my home town from music to anything u can think of but ever since I started my brand mindset had to change we need to support one another to build an empire together e.g Indians and Asians look at the way they do business you’ll understand.

now this is a clothing brand I forgot the owner but I’m guessing he calls him self NINO it’s a brand from RSA/limpopo and honestly I like the way they market their stuff but I still don’t understand their vision honestly i don’t I feel I still need to be briefed anyway who ever is associated with the brand if yall reading this I wanna buy a crew neck  from yall.

Lincoln Long



man these guys keep repeating….but Bro respect this dude homie Is multi talented I wouldn’t even doubt if they told me his a fire fighter now.

well so far what I’ve seen him do;

producing 

event management 

lol even once called himself that_cameraGuy at the time he was doing a lot of photography 

blogging 

braaing

dj

dress

design 

his also  a fan of Castle lager.

but I don’t know man lately homie been hiding under a cave I feel his about to suprise us homie might pull a Kanye or Drizzy on us where he comes back in that depressed look coz he might be working non stop and forget to clean himself.

All the best Lincoln.
Mabee

my brother from next door. homie raised me no lie this dude is on his production streek yho….He probably has more than 2000 projects in his laptop and he be telling me they’ll all get released that’s why I keep telling everybody the future is too bright it’ll all get better just wait on it just don’t sleep to much 

SNIPER 

I been telling yall I need these kids around me man why? they so aware of the latest trends and are very influential now sniper is from limpopo/elim/Waterval  he already has 3k likes on Facebook he even performed at the makhado show grounds what does he do?  I feel his more of a trapper than a rapper no lie I make music cause I saw the possibilities from this kid and his still in high school Bro ….age is just a number.

PROJEKT X



I’m not  really sure who host these events but I know Reeyah. well similar to project X the movie …at projekt x it also gets way too lit the mamie game is too much and the trapping too yall should visit next event is coming on 15th of April watch out its the most lit encounter

meet Matimu Sithole a random person i know who has a good vision for photography this i say because of his instagram account, the images he captures using a phone are amazing when ever i look at most of them these words come to my mind “the day this dude gets his hands on a canon or Nikon his gonna murder most of these photographers”. This post was suppose to be an interview but when i texted him this question…

What is your inspiration for the images you capture together with your captions? his response was…

Not everyone understands, elders of the older generation to be precise “how can taking pictures be a hobby?” They ask… “How much do you charge for one?”. Well It’s not quite surprising, growing and being fed of the impression ;I don’t think anyone then once shot pictures only to take advantage of the good eye they posses and for the fun of it.

I started in 2013. At first I took ‘random shoots’ , but as I did I found my self falling inlove and the deeper I got.. compliments piled up. Being called “Photogenics”, my friend @nxalati8 asked if I knew or have ever heard of anything about instagram. I remember my response included me having seen pictures shared by @_joewe_on Facebook but by then I used a phone’s software which wasn’t compatible, until I got my hands on android 4.1 jelly bean.
instagram became a platform for wider exploring. Having to see other people’s work, admiring, hoping to bring forth better.. and gather more knowledge on the spicing up “colours” (filters). Owk, soooo each image captured is entitled and aspires it’s story to be heard,, to be told. It takes only a look, into mostly who you are cause if you the one destined to sieze the perfect shot then the story is yours to tell. Long for it’s perfect aspiration to inspire you, The Image is yours.

“I’m still learning!” you wrote he Ntwanano, It’s simple but yet very powerful … Yes we are still learning, we always will and only then can we be walking motivations.

at that very moment just after reading this response i knew that this guy is passionate and the words “the day this dude gets his hands on a canon or Nikon his gonna murder most of these photographers” were true. That one question and answer was all i needed.

have a look at some of his  posts
also follow him @denier_m
