The music maker who went from composing songs in his backroom flat in Mau Mau, to producing for the biggest artists in the country, has just released his own single, titled Lemali. .

Simphiwe Halam aka PyroBeats is now a Joburg based beatmaker.

He is hoping that the single can garner the same success that his other productions have for artists such as Vusi Nova, Moneoa and Kid X, to mention but a few.

Halam started his music career in 2004 as a producer and has gone on to became a rapper and is not shy to sing a note as well.

He has worked on numerous projects including “Walk into light” by South African rising star VusiNova. He produced and wrote eight songs in the album.

His has been the mastermind for catapulting many artists from Cape Town into the limelight with his productions.

His list of popular songs include Dj Mbacu’s Khawundenze Ndonwabo, the late crooner Mxizo Lona’s Ndikujongile and Generations X’s Zwakala.

He released his first EP project called “Songs 4 Ur Girl” which contained nine songs, where he features Kid X, Moneoa and Vusi Nova.

I also shot and directed for a music video for “Time” on the EP which is now available on my Youtube channel,” he told City Vision.

On Saturday, he released his latest single Lemali in which he gives insight to the struggles artist face when they make the big move to the big cities.

“Lemali is a song in Xhosa and Zulu that uses a parody to express the struggles and the many ills of this industry and the big city,” he explains.

“We all want to be successful and sometimes we can fall into the trap of trying to impress people by spending more than we can afford on things like expensive clothing and alcohol, forgetting what we came to do.

Those are some of the issues I raise in the song along with the struggles one faces on his way to success”, he added.

Lemali is available on Soundcloud and on Pyrobeats’ fan page “ on facebook and @PyroBeatsSA on twitter.
