Born S’phamandla Mhlongo on the 13th of june 1989, MarazA has achieved in 5 years what other men will die without. After falling in love with Hip Hop in 2001 and taking writing seriously in 2005, MarazA went on to become part of acclaimed Hip Hop outfit Jus Dat!. He also carved a niche for himself as a respectable POET and fearsome BATLLE EMCEE both in the Jozi and Durban scene.
In 2008 history was made: MarazA became Jam Alley Versus’ first CHAMPION after snatching the title from thousands of other hopefulls. Having toured with Jus Dat! over an extensive period, he has reached audiences from Mpumalanga to Jozi and Cape town to Limpopo. In most of these places, he is affectionately known for being that “husky”, “cute” and distinctive voice behind hits like “Beng’ngazi” and “Ayeye!!!”
