The Nomalanga hitmakers disappearance from the face of SA hip-hop earth has been one of South Africa's unsolved hip-hop mysteries.
Little did people know that while he was out of the rap spotlight he was embracing a whole new... stage. Zuluboy (real name Mxoliso Mjozana) was recently cast as the lead in Tsotsi: The Musical. The stage rendition of the South African Oscar winning movie has been running for a while now and Zuluboy has captured the hearts of the reviewers with his riveting performance.
