Born Busisiwe Nolubabalo Nqwiliso in Kimberly she resided in Klerksdorp, North West where she discovered what will be known to the world as an Angelic Voice.

Music has always flowed in her veins and like breathing she hits the high notes with everything she has got.

Her journey began when she sang in the Sunday school choir at the tender age of 7 which got her serious attention for her God given talent.

In 2005, she did the Soul City soundtrack auditions and ended up singing and dancing in the Chicco produced group Maubani.

2006, she was in a June 16, youth project that was done by the highly respected, Duma kaNdlovu and on this project she had an opportunity to share the stage with top music acts such as Judith Sephuma, Tshepo Tshola, Sbongile Mngoma, Arthur Mafokate and Thembisile Mntaka cementing what was already known as a legend in the making.

She was discovered by Thandukwazi “Demor” Sikhosana who owns Demor Music and is part of afro-pop trio group Shana along with Black Coffee and Shota. Bucie’s life took a turn while in school studying music and bass guitar at Central Joburg College where Demor was a lecturer and like it was written in the stars that the moon will awaken their paths crossed and a “shooting star” was unleashed.

Because of the strong presence she possess Demor was also captivated by her voice and beautiful spirit she has and they teamed creating the full package that Bucie is. Demor said: “It was a combination of talent, amazing vocal ability and personality. From that I could just see a superstar.

“It’s rare to find an artist who encompasses all these qualities. Most of these came in handy during the recording of the album.”

What also convinced the crew that they had a winning combination was the response that the first single “Ngicel’indoda” this was evident that Bucie is what the music industry had been yearning for. Her voice is one that commands attention thus it did not take music lovers a second glance to be able to know that she has the “IT” factor.

Turn Me On’ was the first song she wrote herself and got a chance to collaborate with the mythological DJ and producer Black Coffee. The song immediately sky rocketed and received a massive response across
the borders branching into USA and United Kingdom.

In 2009 the song reached no 1 downloaded song on Traxsource earning both artist’s a name and respect around the world on the House music scene.

Just when the world was trying to find their feet with this princess, in 2011 she again released a hit song Superman with Black Coffee which went on to become a national anthem on dance floor and was pumped by DJs in their booths.

Kid X

Born in Middleburg on the 13th of October to Florence Baphelile and Sam Mahlangu, Bonginkosi Mahlangu now known as Kid X has had an unorthodox rise to fame having been discovered after being recommended to Teargas’ K.O. by would-be group member Smashis during the formation of Cashtime Fam. Right after scoring three consecutive number ones’ on YFM’s Hot 9 Nine Hip-hop chart, Kid-X put his solo career to an abrupt halt to join AB Crazy & Smashis in the group Cashtime Fam.

Cashtime Fam took a while to cement it’s identity as a group with the changes in personnel and initially being combined with the other three members of Teargas but after the release of Goodbye all the initial stutters were put in the past and the trio had 2011 biggest hip-hop song in the bag. The song topped the charts and the trio had throng of girls around the country we’re eating out of the palms of their hands.

In 2012 the group looked to be headed for bigger and better things but this was put in jeopardy with the departure rapper, vocalist & producer AB Crazy decided to part ways with the group to pursue a solo career. It would seem that was the beginning of the end for Cashtime Fam but Smashis and Kid X continued to hold the fort, going on to win a Channel-O Music Video award for the best Southern African Act. In the same year Kid X made a name for himself outside of the group when he was featured on 2012’s biggest hit, BoomShakaLaka with Kwesta. This was followed a nationwide tour that summer when Cashtime Fam joined forces with Kwesta to embark on the 13 city Hangover Tour, a South African Hip-hop first, which saw them crisscrossing inland South Africa and ending in a sweep of coastline from east to west.

In 2013 Cashtime Fam now a duo, released a 16-track mix-tape titled “Rap Ain’t Dead It’s Outchea” or R.A.D.I.O. This was followed by the release of two singles that topped YFM’s Hot 99 Hip-hop chart namely Nobody & Time Goes By but when they failed to live up to the success previously enjoyed by Goodbye it was back to the drawing board for the group. The duo got together with Hip-hop DJ Speedsta for the release of his single Don’t Worry, which went on to be a huge club hit and was the groups swan song or as some would put it, the last kick of a dying horse. Kid X and Smashis both kept themselves sharp by racking up and unprecedented amount of features individually which saw Kid-X emerge somewhat of hit maker with South Africa’s top DJ’s endorsing him as the go-to-guy to feature on their records.

2014 saw the announcement of the disbanding of Cashtime Fam as a group and rebranding of the stable under the Cashtime Life banner. Following this announcement it was decided that bot Smashis and Kid-X would be resigned to the stable as solo acts. Having had more solo success under his belt Kid X was the natural choice to release a solo single from the disbanded group but his first port of call was another feature and this time he was called upon by Teargas’ K.O. who discovered him all those years ago for his solo single Cara-Cara.

The success of Cara-cara saw Kid X being featured in three of South African hip-hop biggest hits all before releasing a hit single of his own… Cara Cara has gone on to break airplay records spending 3 weeks atop the South African Radio airplay chart (June 2014). This set Kid X up for the release of the most anticipated 1st single in the history of South African Hip-hop and with Pass n’ Special, he’s given his fans all that they’ve been asking for and more. He’s currently working on his debut album slated for a 2015 release but until then you can expect more dust, more vibe and more Skhanda wherever you hear the name Kid X being mentioned.
