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.

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.

It’s the 31/12/2015 and today we bid farewell to 2015 and welcome 2016 but i couldn’t leave 2015 with nothing so me being me i set down with Mashamba Livhuwani to bless you with new age history’s final post for this year.
Who is Mashamba Livhuwani and what his about? you’ll have to read below to find out
Photographed by @_joewe_
Enjoy🙌;

Name:
Mashamba Livhuwani
Birth:
20 September 1993
origins:
born in a township in SOUTH AFRICA/Limpopo called Waterval somewhere between Makhado and Giyani.
Studies:
Mechatronics engineering at Tshwane University of Technology.

Growing up i had hobbies and admirations to fashion but there were obstacles such as financial issues but that didn’t phase my love for fashion and since following trends was acceptable to society i joined sbujwa where I’d wear colourful skinny jeans and masandazi together with a backpack this led me to join a dance group in Thohoyandou and my advantage to fit in was the fact that i could dance circles around them.
As time passed i started to realise that people out there in the world notice you more than in your hometown cause whenever your in your hometown once you start to establish something new they get this idea that you think your better than everyone and that for me became a reason to target a society outside my community. When i got to university in 2012 i told myself here is where I’ll discover myself and indeed that’s where my calling as a vintage rebel was unveiled.

I remember the first day at campus i saw these 2 guys dressed funny like kids in North America or on Tv holding a vinyl and i asked myself who are these guys? are they crazy or…but one thing for sure i loved the way they were unique and outstanding from everyone else, that’s how i want to be like whenever i dress so from there i became a vintage rebel and in those initial days whenever i dressed it seemed like I’m forcing it cause even now whenever i look at my throwback images i laugh

image

luckily one of the guys i was in a group with in high School was friends with those two guys actually they are neighbors in Thohoyandou anyway the guy introduced me to them one was Maitele Wawe though I’m not close with them now these guys i admire and Maitele would have a vintage outlet at his crib where we would go and stock in Pretoria.
Time went by and i met other vintage crews e.g Troublesome kids, Retro vintage kolektion owned by Bongani (Bongs) also Retro vintage kolektion was the first to make kids in Pretoria recognize vintage fashion, they had exclusive vintage items which you couldn’t find anywhere else they even hosted a fashion show where i got to meet owner’s of galxboy i even got introduced to other upcoming brands and yeah that’s how my journey of being a fashion icon started.

How i dress:
image

How i dress since 2012/2013 it was strictly vintage then 2014 the fashion stuff kind of went on the downside cause i was over hooked on weed,girls and alcohol but in late August 2014 i met this honey named Boitumelo Mokwana she’s my ex now but she was into fashion…man that girl revived me cause we used to compete whenever we dressed then later on she introduced me to guys like Norman Tips and “General” these guys are fashionistas and even to-date we still connected then 2015 i branched my vintage outfits to street formal like how I’m dressed now

image

image

decribed it’s classic dapper mixed with street style.

You know whenever i dress i just want to stand out it’s not me bragging or anything like that but i just want to stand out for you to see my outfit and applaude me if necessary also it’s about what do you want people to think of you when you’ve left Earth.
When i dress up it’s from monday to sunday in Pretoria but when I’m back home (Waterval) i only dress up when there’s an occasion cause you know how people are back home.
On my outfits I’m picky there’s certain shoes that i like

image

if i we’re to buy them people would think I’m crazy i remember last time my mom bought me a pair of adidas kicks not that i disliked them those kicks are fresh but in my vision there is no outfit to correspond with those kicks even to-date and when i do wear them that’s when i feel like wearing whatever, with everything i wear it has to match up i don’t want to go out looking like I’m colour blocking or something.
image

The outfits I’m feeling right now
ripped long line shirts
long jackets (Parka, trenchcoat)
blue ripped tight jeans
Nike roshe runs
palladium boots
and these

image

outfits I’m not feeling right now
Starter packs
Fake Cash time life clothing
petrol or milk
bucket hats
shorts with long white socks and a pair of chuck Taylors that’s so 2014.

Future plans:
I’m starting a brand titled rubbish in 2016 somewhere around February we gonna preview it.
Members are myself, kwanele DT (kwanza) who will deal with hiphop & Hector the dj/deephouse producer these guys will deal with media we even got samples of socks and caps etc and another thing is rubbish it’s not only fashion we are an entertainment hub cause we want to be independent when we make it….we don’t wanna depend on anyone we want to have in house resources.
image

Conclusion:
i might not be the greatest in fashion but rather than sitting my ass down and relying on society i need to stand up on my own two feet and chase my goals so i can become an idol just like Maitele, Shaun-the stylish, Stilo magolide, Okmalumkoolkat and Ricky Rick…these guys not that they are cults in fashion but they just know the type of texture/element they are looking for in cloth, they do know it. My love for fashion is soul connected somewhere somehow your soul must connect with what you want all and all what im trying to say is with fashion i wanna show my people in Waterval the importance of having a goal…2016 watch out!
