IMBALI Unit 13 hip hop artist says he wants to use his music to teach other people about self acceptance. Sphesihle Mbanjwa (25) recently released a song titled ‘In my Cup’. He said this song will make people get on their feet and dance, while also sending out a message about self-acceptance and being true to yourself, despite what other people may think or say about you.“I started writing lyrics in 2015 and my rapping career was born in 2016, at the age of 21. “To me music is not just music but it is a language itself. I want to use music to communicate and teach people about life. I want to use music to bring a change in people’s lives. I want them to accept who they are, believe in their dreams and encourage them to push until they reach to the top. I am so excited about this new song and I hope that people will enjoy it,”he said. Mbanjwa said apart from music being his passion, it has also played a huge role in keeping him focused and not getting involved in social ills such as drugs and alcohol abuse. “My love for music was inspired by my uncle Msawenkosi Mbanjwa who loved to sing. He used to sing in a gospel choir called SOS which was based in Pietermaritzburg. “Seeing him being part of the music scene and seeing his passion about music made me fall in love it. I knew that I didn’t have a strong voice like his to sing gospel, but I definitely knew that I can do other genres so I settled on hip hop.” He said his dream is for his music to go international and also be able to collaborate with big rappers like Nasty C, AKA and Cassper Nyovest to name a few. His song is available on all digital platforms.
