Who is Kwesta?
Senzo Mfundo Vilakazi (born 11 August 1988) known professionally as Kwesta, is a South African rapper and songwriter. He was born in Katlehong, Gauteng, a township also known as “K1”.
His rise to fame
In 2003, Kwesta, then known as Quest, and some friends, formed a group called “Ghetto Fellaz”, which became known as “The Juvenylz” with an additional member. Kwesta dropped out of high school at age 16 to pursue his music career full-time. He recorded his first demo in his home studio. This demo caught the attention of Africa’s Most Southern Record Company (AMS), which eventually allowed him to use their recording facilities. Kwesta was then later signed by Buttabing Records which is owned by Shugasmakx and Slikour where he released his debut studio album “Special ReKwest”
Kwesta’s second studio album DaKAR (Da King of Afrikan Rap) was released digitally on 25 November 2013. It debuted at number 3 on the South African iTunes Hip-hop / Rap Chart. The album was well received by fans and music industry insiders.
Kwesta’s third studio album DaKAR II, a double-disc album, was released on 26 February 2016 and was preceded by three major singles, “Nomayini” and “Ngud'”. The latter features guest vocals from fellow South African rapper Cassper Nyovest. Ngud was released as a radio-edit on 23 November 2015, and the music video dropped in early 2016. In 2017, he released “Ngiyaz’fela Ngawe” with Thabsie. The video currently has 8 million views on YouTube.
