Hip Hop Band - Johannesburg


With numerous songs recorded and on stage experience under his belt, KWESTA’s demo made its way to the Buttabing Entertainment offices in April 2007. His demo was received with great enthusiasm and this led to the official induction of KWESTA as a member of the Buttabing Entertainment family.

Senzo Mfundo Vilakazi was born on the 11th August 1988. He hails from the township of Katlehong in the East Rand of Johannesburg, where his dreams to become a rap superstar began. In high school KWESTA had a keen interest in poetry that received positive feedback from the teachers and students encouraging him to move forward but it was when he won a talent show at school that led him to the realis...ation that he had a talent of the spoken word.

In 2003 he and a group of friends formed a rap crew called "Ghetto Fellaz" which then changed to “The Juvenylz‟ with the addition of a new member. The crew had high hopes and were waiting to be discovered. When the situation did not pan out as planned for the group KWESTA knew he had to take an aggressive tone to his career and started recording his own material in his make shift home studio.

It was only in 2005 when he met Max from Africa‟s Most Southern (AMS) Record Company that progress was made. AMS had their own recording facilities where KWESTA honed his rapping skills on a countless number of songs. While his relationship with AMS advanced, other opportunities arose that would validate him as an artist.



KWESTA went on to win the MC of the month competition on Yfm‟s Rap Activity Jam and also took first place on The Freestyle Kings special on ETV‟s Shiz Niz. He actively kept his name on peoples tongues by performing at the Miss Confidence Show, The Rand Show and The Durban Beach Festival to name a few.

Recent exciting news about our well known Kwesta has made history by becoming South African hip-hop’s all-time best-selling artist for his third album DaKAR II. The Recording Industry of South Africa (RISA) has announced the album is now seven times platinum - making it a first for the local hip-hop industry.

Kwesta says DaKAR II was not a solo effort, it came to be because of the input of other artists and creatives. The rapper thanks his supporters for helping him achieve this milestone by purchasing his music.
