Artiste Profile: Meet Bongo Riot, South African’s Most Prolific Reggae Dancehall Artiste

Published

on

Multiple award winning and most vibrant reggae cum dancehall artiste, Bongo Riot, born Mphikeleli Zungu, took a bold step with his solo career channeling his love for music through a music genre that isn’t so popular in South Africa amongst the youth in comparison to House; Kwaito, Amapiano and Hip Hop.

However, with his leading single “Saka Leyena” receiving positive feedback in the form of radio plays, it has proven to be a step in the right direction for the innovative musician who is setting to embark on a country-wide tour to promote his upcoming album.

It would be an unfair assumption to state that Riot’s career started when he joined Gang Of Instrumentals, a musical group in South Africa. The truth is, that’s where we all got to know the kwaThema resident after his voice reverberated over Teargas’ “Champions”, a song that took South Africa by storm and put Riot on the map.

Crowned ”Mzansi’s Finest” after he won a Castle Lager Hip Hop competition that required him to battle Hip Hop performers around South Africa, Riot
boldly stood out with his Ragga/Reggae rhymes as a member of SAMA winning urban-pop group from Johannesburg, Gang Of Instrumentals, whose members included the songstress (Tumi) and
rapper Mandla N.


In the shedding of his dreadlocks, he emancipated himself and aptly dropped the “Bongo” from his stage name. Bongo Riot is the king of the Southern Africa Reggae Dancehall fraternity.

In the quest for independence and to further showcase his skills, Riot signed with TS Records with a licensing deal from EMI Music/CCP Records and released a 14-track album that kicks off with a nostalgic intro that flows into the second track – “Far Away Bride” and you will certainly know that you’re in for a treat with the Reggae/Ragga album. The bulk of the production is from the legendary Robbie Malinga as well as fellow stable mate at TS Records, Lungelo and also boasts a feature from Lungelo on “Life” and Zahara on a track called “Thetha Nami”. The album, which is suitably titled “I Am an African”, is a melting pot of Reggae/Ragga/Hip Hop and Afro-Soul sounds.


Bongo Riot is currently working with Bantu Media Productions and in 2019, he released a new album titled “Next Levels” His Music will be distributed through Powertainment Reggae Sound.

“Bongo Riot” aka Dancehall Wakanda, is one of  the greatest South African vocalists who does not excel only in Dancehall/Reggae genres but also does House, Afrobeat, Amapiano and Pop.

Bongo Riot has won several awards during his career span, the most recent being Best Reggae Dancehall album at South African Music Awards, 2020/2021.

Prophet Kumchacha Eyes 2024 Presidency

Published

on

By

The founder and leader of the Heaven’s Gate Ministries,  Prophet Nicholas Osei mostly known as Kumchacha, has formally declared his intent to contest in the 2024 presidential election on the ticket of the Kum People’s Party (KPP).

According to information gathered from close sources and his team, Prophet
Kumchacha did not just wake up to this fate but has thoroughly thought through it before moving into motion. Kumchacha who is known for his aggressive outbursts on social and political issues in the country deems himself fit for presidency because he believes he being a man of God with thousands of people under his care knows how best to manage the nation.

The man of God is said to have already assembled a team of able bodied men with intellect and drive who are ready to serve the country Ghana. Prophet Kumchacha promises a government that prioritizes the needs of the needy and less privileged.

His team furthered that, the prophet realising the fact that all past governments having abused the rule of law, and lying to power by playing with the intelligence of Ghanaians, he sees himself as the saviour to correct all the wrongs of the country now because he has all the clues and policies needed to reconstruct the nation.

 

His team also projected that team KPP led by Prophet Kumchacha believes partisanship is the major contributing factor of our woes as a country and the faster we ditch it, the better. They indicated that Ghana is underdeveloped because of bad leadership. They urged Ghanaians to do away with the politics of “NPP and NDC” and see their leader, Prophet Kumchacha as the alternative.

Kumchacha and his “Kum People’s Party” in their manifesto spelt out ten core objectives of revamping Ghana’s economy. Starting by focusing on unemployment, health, and women empowerment. They will then zoom into  the education, infrastructure and  sports sectors. Lastly they will hurdle the affairs of tourism and agriculture into betterness.

The source also mentioned that the “KPP” administration will work vigorously to implement policies that will take care of Ghanaians by creating employment for the youth.

Also, providing the health needs of the people would also be their outmost priority. He said if Prophet Kumchacha is elected president, his government will build well equipped general hospitals in all the 16 regions of Ghana to support the existing ones which are at times chocked.

The source, however, appealed to the people to consider him for the coveted office of the president based on his experiences and commitment to democratic norms.

The team then has assured Ghanaians that they are going to see more of KPP as they have readied their campaign song and fliers which they will release soon.
