RIGHT ON CUE
After a slow start to the year, with his small band of followers hungry for fresh music, right on cue, Wise Cue has told GIG he will be dropping a new single this week.
The 27-year-old Etsha-born star’s latest tune is called ‘Kukwetu’, which means ‘at our home’.
Proudly sung in Wise Cue’s native Sembukushu language, as the title suggests, the song is a message to the youth, reminding them not to forget their roots.
Produced by Mac Pasi Records in Ghanzi, the AfroPop offering takes the artist’s portfolio to six singles, to go with his one album to date.
The singer born, Diwana Chende, has been striving to make it big in the industry since 2019 and counts local legends ATI and Ban T as his role models.

RWABLING RUMBLING ON
Largely credited as the founding father of ‘Mazganda’ music alongside Ras-T, two years ago Mr Rwabling opened his own studio, Rwabling Productions. Based in Gerald Estates in the second city, the studio has enjoyed much success since then.
Alternating between its Ghetto headquarters and Molepolole, a number of artists have passed through its doors, including the likes of Mkholoskop, Sjametsi, Speedy and Stevavo.
A passionate disco artist, Mr Rwabling describes himself as a true pantsula, an infatuation that dates back to his school days.
