I got to know about Mafikizolo when I moved up from Cape Town 10 years ago. It must have been my excitement of moving to the big city, Johannesburg, and making a new life trying to find my pot of gold. I used to play their music non-stop, trying to sing along to words I did not understand and could not pronounce.
One of my favorite Mafikizolo songs at that time was “Ndihamba Nawe.”
This year, they released a big club banger of a track called “Khona.”
