De Mthuda too to social media to celebrate his and peer’s major achievement a ‘Liyoshona’ has just gone double platinum. De Mthuda wrote that he is proud of his circle and congratulated them on the latest achievement.
Kwiish SA on the other hand has been making lots of headlines lately since breaking into fame with 2017 ht song ‘Iskhathi’. Isikhathi, which means “time” in isiZulu, only lives up to its popular nickname, Gong Gong. Similarly, the song’s producer, Kwiish SA, is finding his rhythm as a professional musician in a genre that is shaking up the country’s music industry establishment to its foundations.
“The song pushed itself, nobody promoted it,” Kwiish said about his first major hit in a seven-year career which has had its share of knocks and near misses. Gong Gong first became a local hit in Vosloorus, where Kwiish was raised and still lives. It then found its way out of Vosloorus thanks primarily to the popular messaging application Whatsapp. “When you send music through Whatsapp, there is no stopping it. So the name Kwiish SA was already on kids’ phones and I would hear my music being played in local taxis, not knowing how it got there.”
