LOCAL musician and producer, Feleba, also the founder of Rieco Bird Media, is putting township musicians on the map.

Feleba SK was born and raised in Botha’s Hill and has worked with many artists in the music industry.

“I started putting my work onto record in 2003 with my friends Mondi and Makhosini, and together we formed a group called Ghetto Ghost under the stable, BMU records.

“The group became successful, but as we grew older we seemed to take a different direction so we decided to end the group with the intention of building ourselves as solo artists.

“In 2007 I started a new group called Zulu Camp with five members - Mic Stealer, SBS, Jakalasi, BMK and Kimbe and the band became very popular because of our energy on stage.
“We released two projects, which did well in terms of sales, because the money we made from the sales we used to upgrade our recording studio.
“I later left Zulu Camp, allowing them to grow their artistry, and then in 2010 I formed Hustle 411. This group released a project in 2012, which was well received and it put us on the Durban and KZN music industry map.”

Hustle 411 has now become home to three additional members.

“Hustle 411 is a crew of musicians and we have a project that aims to grow its members as solo musicians.

“The years in the industry have taught me a lot as I have gained skills in production, self-marketing as well as developing my music skills.

“I am also working with most of the Botha’s Hill musicians through Rieco Bird Media. I am so committed to my work that I turned my bedroom into a recording studio.

“I hosted Afrik Hip Hop Mixtape with Zay Heath from the United States, the aim of which was to open platforms for musicians from all corners of Africa.

“I believe my music is easy to understand in that you don’t have to be a hip-hop lover to listen to my records - you can relate to my raps even if you not into hip-hop.

“I have performed on indoor and outdoor stages, for big and small crowds.”
