The duo that came up with a new genre of music called Kwaitrap is determined to make waves in the entertainment circles of Khayelitsha, they reckon.

Vuyolwethu Makazi,21, and Baluleko Sisusa,22, of Money Intelligent Squad (MIS), are positive that their new sound is going to be the new sound on the block, so to speak.

Kwaitrap is a combination of Kwaito and Hip Hop music.

The rage started after Makazi, a Hip Hop enthusiast, approached Sisusa, a House Music DJ, to form a group with a new style of music, at Manyano High School, in 2011.

They used the word Kwaai to represent the slang used in the city for dope and also for the kwaito element in their music.

Makazi said they sing about things that are happening in their community.

“We sing about things that are happening in our lives and in our community. We do not want to sing about things that we do not have unlike other Hip Hop artists. It is about our lives and style,” Makasi said.

They released their first single titled ‘You are made for me’ which made waves in Radio Zibonele 98.2 FM, in 2011.

They have recently released a new version of the song “Iyawa iRoof”, but they used only the chorus of the song.

They claim that it was warmly welcomed by their fans and they dance to it whenever they perform in the area.

They have already released a video of the song which was shot at Buyelembo.

MIS is also planning to release another single which will be titled ‘Sohamba Ngo 7’ soon.

It will also be released together with the music video.

The song is a combination of two songs which are ‘Mthwalo wam uyandisinda’ by Target and Diley and also the song ‘Sohamba ngo 7’ which was first released by Sparks Bantwana.

Sisusa said their music is growing and it is set to uplift the standard of music in the city.

“We are trying to uplift music in the city and also to make people to love what they have. We represent Khayelitsha and Cape Town. We decided to come up with the genre that we would be satisfied with. Our fans love our music, it is catchy.

Our music takes you from misery to a good mood and motivates people. There are many dope singles that are coming up,” Sisusa said.

MIS is due to perform at the Miss and Mr Gentle Black event, which will be held at Masibambane Hall, in Khayelitsha, on Saturday 14 May.
