What A Life

South African rapper and rising star Sho Madjozi has released her highly-anticipated new mixtape 'What A Life'.

The project features artists such as Manu WorldStar, Makhadzi, Thomas Chauke, Russian Army and DJ Mfundhisi.

Madjozi is back with her high energy lyrics and eclectic sound! The colourful artist announced the release of her mixtape on Friday.

'What A Life' comes two years after her highly-praised 2018 debut album, 'Limpopo Champions League'.

Madjozi rose to global fame with her single 'John Cena' last year. The viral song inspired an online dance challenge and led to a number of international TV moments.

The Tsonga musician made history as the first female artist from South Africa to win a BET Award for Best International Act in 2019.

What made us start is making people happy and making people dance and that's what we'll keep doing.

Sho Madjozi, rapper

There was quite a big year for me with that [John Cena] song.

Sho Madjozi, rapper

I started making music four years ago, I haven't stopped since my first song. I took it [the lockdown] as a well-needed break and a chance to complete some projects.
