KOKSTAD artists who have been signed to LPM Music will be relocating to Johannesburg this Sunday to look for greener pastures to market their songs.

Zizipho Nogwaza, who manages six artists signed to the label, said accommodation and travel costs for the artists would be covered by the company.

The music company, based in Kokstad, has signed artists like gospel artist Mandla Mpinani, songwriter Viwe “Brikzit” Mabhodla, Mthokozisi “Dj Pitch” Mlenzana, Lungisile “LGL” Nkosiyaphantsi, Luthando “T’Doz” Siketo and DJ Mellz.

Speaking at a media briefing held in Kokstad on Tuesday, Nogwaza said the artists were groomed and helped to produce quality songs by the music company.

“There are many opportunities in Johannesburg where artists can flourish in the music industry.

We want the artists to work directly with well-known artists to expand their knowledge and skills,” he said.

T’Doz, who will be releasing his music video before the end of July, asked people to support his music.

“We have public relations officers who will organise gigs and help our artists to promote music,” said Nogwaza.
