“This music journey is so much bigger than just the artist”, Tshego told QuenchSA back in 2016 in a very frank interview. Three years later, that journey has detoured and led to new highs for the Rnb singer, who recently became a father.

In a fresh scoop that has delighted fans, the Garden hitmaker has inked a record deal with Universal Music Group Africa, joining a bevy of successful contemporaries.

This ‘elite roaster’ features recent signees including Cassper Nyovest – to whom he was previously signed under Family Tree, as well as Nasty C and Tellaman.

The signing comes with two other major developments; The 29 year old thrilled fans when he teased snippets of a new single, No Ties, featuring King Monada. The track has been earmarked for a Friday debut on July 26th.

While he already boasts  a slew of singles fashioning his colourful catalogue, No Ties is also confirmed to be the first single from his long (long, long) awaited album, Pink Panther. The single got its first airplay on Metro FM with Mo Flava.

Affectionately known as the ‘Pink Panther’, Tshego has made the colour a staple in his branding. Born in Atlanta, Georgia to South African parents, he later moved to Mahikeng where he started writing his own music at the age 13 and by the time he was 16 had taught himself how to produce.

Originally performing under the name Shag the gorilla, Tshego gained nationwide attention with the release of Hennessy in 2016 followed by other hits such as Garden, The Vibe along with a number of collaborations with Cassper Nyovest, Gemini Major and Nadia Nakai.

The Shocking Fallout of Black Motion

Tensions have reportedly escalated.

They are one of South Africa’s most revered music duos.

Their discography packs both blockbuster club bangers and lush delights for lovers of House with a transcendental African sonic flair. And the explosive fallout of Black Motion, which has been splashed across the internet long before reaching the courts, has shocked many.

Loved for their electrifying live performances and awe-inspiring chemistry, Mörda and Smol have always seemed like musical soulmates. But that relationship seems to have reached a bitter end.

In 2022, rumours of their reported split triggered a frenzy on the internet. Following the uproar, the group’s members Bongani Mohosana, who now goes as Mörda, and Smol (real name Roy Thabo Mabogwane), jointly calmed fears that they had fallen out.

It had been said the break would be temporary, as Mörda moved to focus on the release of his solo studio album.

Far from it, it now seems. The parties have escalated things to court.

According to reports, Black Motions have confirmed that they had pressed charges against Mörda for alleged housebreaking and theft.

A court order by the High Court in Gauteng posted on social media has ordered Morda to “restore possession of a recording studio apparatus” to the group by 13 January, at 5pm. 

Black Motion shared snaps of the alleged damage caused by Morda – a broken door and stolen equipment.

 

It looks like we won’t be getting a new Black Motion album with Mörda anytime soon.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW.

The highly anticipated social experiment brings under Biggie’s roof housemates from both South Africa and Nigeria. And for 72 days, we will be splashed with the finest in South African and Nigerian swag, banter, romance and all the trappings of a fun-filled, dramatic and – we’d hope – an entertaining show.

A first of its kind, the social experiment assembles the most colourful personalities from the two nations to outwit, outplay and outsmart each other in a bid to get their hands on a massive bag, life-changing bag!

In addition to a number of lofty prizes that will likely be on the line throughout the season, the winner of the show will also be walking away, a whopping grand prize of US $100 000 (over R1,7 million) is up for grabs for the one who trounces his Housemates to charm audiences across the continent.

That’s not all; the amount of social capital, celebrity and opportunities for lucrative brand deals after the show, all form part of the career-launching lift-off that comes with being on the popular franchise.

Both Big Brother Mzansi host Lawrence Maleka and Big Brother Naija’s Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will co-host this debut season.
