Here is a look back at the late Mampintsha’s net worth, and his journey in the music and television industries.

A great deal of Mampintsha’s net worth was built from his successful career in music as a musician and a music producer.

He began his music career in 2002 at the tender age of 20, when together with his friends- Sbu Khomo (better known as R Mashesha), and Mzi Tshomela (better known as Danger), they formed the musical group called Big Nuz.

The trio who had been raised together in Umlazi township in Durban moved to Johannesburg to secure a contract with a record label in 2002. They achieved little success during their hustle in Jo’burg and after their debut album -Zozo performed dismally in 2006, they packed up their bags and returned to Durban.

In 2007, the group worked with DJ Tira on their hit single- Uyosholo Wena which did relatively well. They were signed by the Afrotainment recording label in 2008 and released their second album 2nd Round Knockout which was a huge success and helped the group win awards and gain national recognition.

Over the next years, Big Nuz went on to release several other studio albums including Undisputed, Pound for Pound, Made in Africa, and For the Fans. 

In 2015, R Mashesha who was a member of Big Nuz passed on following a complication during surgery. He died on the same day that they released For the Fans and after that Mampintsha went on a solo journey.

He got signed by West Ink Records and in 2016, after meeting Babes Wodumo, who later also became his wife, they released the hit single Wololo which was used as a soundtrack for Black Panther.

Mampintsha continued to work as a solo artist until 2022 when he announced the return of Big Nuz. They released their 7th studio album- R Mashesha in November 2022 and their song Ngeke won UKhozi FM song of the year.
