They have been making music together for longer than a decade and have travelled the world sharing their sound.

The duo Black Motion, Thabo “Smol” Mabogwane on percussions, and Bongani “Murdahbongz" Mohosana have been a force in the music industry.

Recently, the dynamic duo was rumoured to have gone their separate ways, leaving their fans in shock.

In a statement released by their record label Spirit Motion, they have confirmed that their rumours are not true, they are not parting ways. However will also start pursuing solo careers.

“This is the official statement from Spirit Motion on behalf of our brand and asset Black Motion. This comes after damaging and untrue rumours that emerged on 29 April 2022, that Black Motion has split on social media by an account only known as Musa Khawula,” they wrote in the statement.

“Spirit Motion would like to state on record that Black Motion members Thabo Mabogwane aka Smol and Bongani Mohosana aka Murdahbongz have not parted ways. Black Motion still exists and has plans for more years to come.”

The Ven Pa Ka duo says the only change which does not affect the duo is that Murdah has rebranded himself from Murdah to Mörda. 

“This is because he is preparing to launch his solo career as a DJ, but still remains part and parcel of Black Motion.”

“The same applies for Smol who is also venturing into other business aspects which will be announced once they are solidified. A new album with new sounds and feel is in the making and we will soon announce more projects that Black Motion is working on.”

The pair says they trust that this dispels any rumours or uncertainties from their fans, industry peers, promoters, brand agencies, or any future events they are booked at. 

“Lastly, we would like to say a big Thank You to all our supporters for their endless love. Meropa le Merethetho always!”
