Catching up with Maxhoseni (Ikhoboka Lenyaniso)
Ola bhut’ Maxho uright?
All good fam, khawutsho ke since a lot of people bekugqibele k’ dala what have you been up to?
Your new album, tell us more about it. Who did you work with, when did it drop, how is it doing etc.
From back to the Lampiter Clan days to now, how have Maxhoseni grown as a writer and MC?
You have a new crew now (Password Crew). Tell us more about that and where do you fit in as the only spaza rapper in the crew?
Everyone has their own fresh style in the crew. We are all unique so I don't feel like I'm the only one who stands out.
Should we expect something new from Password Crew?
You’ve been to a lot of places including Johannesburg, are people feeling Spaza Music?
You once mentioned that you are signed with Intloko Zenyoka Entertainment. Are you still with them?
No I wasn't signed with them but I joined their movement while I was in Cape Town, so that I could push their mixtapes there and they did the same for my music in the EC. And yes, I still work with them. I have just produced a beat which will be in Iintloko Zeenyoka's upcoming album.
The track “honey” is a classic and everyone loves it. Do you think things would’ve been the same if you didn’t have a classic track like that behind you?
Now you have “Xa Ndifile”, tell us more about the joint. Who produced it, what it’s all about etc.
'Xa Ndifile' is just a song which I released on the internet. I did not make it with the intention of making it a single but I realized that listeners really liked it, so I decided to distribute it to radio stations. After submission this track has been play listed on Umhlobo Wenene FM, TruFM, Mdantsane FM and other local radio stations. It has made it to the Top 10 hottest hip hop songs on Motsweding FM. The song talks about something everybody thinks about. We all wonder what will happen or how things will be when we are no longer on this earth. The beat was taken from the song "Look Around" by The Beatnuts featuring Dead Prez.
Soon you will be performing on one of the biggest festivals in Africa (Back to the City Festival). How are you feeling right now as you will be sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in S.A Hip Hop?
Any message for your haters? Lol
No I have nothing to say to my haters because I only focus on people who support me. So I would like to send a message to my fans and supporters. Thank you very much for your support from the days of 'Honey' all the way up to where I am today. I appreciate all that you have done to contribute to my success and I couldn't have done it without you.
For people that want your album, how can they get hold of you?
