Known for his hit single Ndi a Nifuna, local hip-hop star Fizzy recently released his third album, Lovers and friends.
The 30-year-old from Ha-Mudimeli said that the album was comprised of 19 songs. Three of the most popular songs on the album are Muneighbour, True love, and I want you back.
Fizzy, who was born Mbavhalelo Waddell Radebe, is a songwriter and producer. "I was introduced to music composing and production in 2004. I started producing music by making house instrumentals in 2006. I then started producing hip-hop and kwaito beats for local artists around Louis Trichardt," he said.
He said that from 2008 to 2010 he went to study for a Diploma in Business Information Technology at Rosebank College. "In 2011, I formed a group called Toofab alongside Kashflow and SK VillageBoss. We released two mixtapes in 2011 and 2012. I then released my first mixtape, Who’s that boy as a solo artist in April 2012, and in 2013 I teamed up with Floydbest and Cjay to release the Grandeur mixtape, consisting of 10 tracks," he said.
In 2014, Fizzy released his debut album Fhano shangoni and in 2016 African Vibrations followed.
Some of Fizzy's achievements are: 2018 best music video of the year at the Limpopo Music Awards, the 2017 TSHIMA for the best male artist of the year and 2015 he received the TSHIMA best hit single award.
He is the founder of Toofab Music, which produces music for local artists such as Kashflow, Geenkon, Mizo Phyll, Ramzeey, Prifix, Cjay, and Batondy.
He said that his album would be available soon at music stores around Louis Trichardt and Thohoyandou. "It's also available on digital online stores such as iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and many more online platforms," he added.
