Afrotainment boss, DJ Tira has spoken glowingly of his sultry and sensual act, Zodwa Wabantu. In fact, with many years as a mogul in the entertainment industry, Tira believes Zodwa is one of the hottest properties at the imprint.
DJ Tira confirmed his hopes and faith in the pant-skipping sensation whose real name is Zodwa Rebecca Libram in a chat with TshisaLive on a recent visit to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
“I never thought I would have one of my hottest properties being someone like Zodwa. She’s phenomenal. Along with Tipcee, they are amazing artistes. Zodwa adds charisma at Afrotainment: She brings something and when she goes on stage everyone goes crazy. Excuse her for being too raw at times,” the “Malume“ hitmaker confirmed.
It would be recalled that Zodwa Wabantu recently confirmed she doesn’t plan to get involved with music on a full time basis. However, she and “iScathulo“ star, Tipcee, have now been penciled for big things in the industry by many experts; including the legendary DJ Tira himself.
However, as with business, the entrepreneur whose real name is Mthokozisi Khathi does know the risks involved with investing in new artists.
“It’s not easy breaking new artists. You spend money and ask yourself ‘but why’? At the end it’s about hope. It hurts to see an artist not working out and, at times, it takes forever,” he added.
DJ Tira believes Big Nuz to be his biggest find of his career till date. Made up of the trio of Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo, Mzi “Danger” Tshomela and the late Sbusiso “R Mashesha” Khoma, they simply exceeded the expectations of the celebrated DJ.
“Big Nuz came when we were starting out. They had nothing but now they are on their own feet with their own artists and label West Ink. Their success prides me,” he concluded.
