Award-winning hip hop artist Zakwe joins us in the loft for our weekly cookalong. Zakwe is known for his poetic lyrics and his recent album ‘Cebisa’ which was his third studio album and features the SAMA nominated ‘Sebentin’ under the Best Remix of the Year category.

He grew up in Kwa-Mashu, as the son of two school teachers, making discipline in the household a very real thing. It was his love for poetry when he was younger that would eventually lead him to discover his passion for rap and to be able to make a living out it. It wasn’t until 2008 though while still in 2nd year studying IT, did he release his first EP which gained him a large following and gave him the courage that he needed to be able to pursue his dream of a career in hip hop. The Kwa-Zulu Natal born rapper has collaborated with some of the biggest artists in South Africa for the making of the recent album, which was not something that he had done a lot on his previous albums.
