AN exciting opportunity for musicians, singers, rappers in Umvoti has opened up with the establishment of the Mashabela Empire - a studio for recording artists.

Sphiwe “Spijo” Mashabela and Bulela “Drastik” Bongwa, founders of the business, told Greytown Gazette that due to the lack of infrastructure and proper equipment the many talented people in the area were not given an opportunity to promote their talent.

However, Mashabelaz Empire Records has opened and will record, free of charge, unless a backing group is required, music, poetry and songs of talented people thus giving them a chance to showcase their talent.

Producer Drastik is a well-known musician whose EP Molly Days was released on 20 November.

Spijo and Drastik believe there is a lot of undiscovered talent around and look forward to recording lots of good music to promote throughout the country.

Contact Spijo on 078 487 5818 or Drastik on 063 467 0138 to arrange a recording at the Greytown studio.
