After a long absence, the multi-award-winning kwaito group Big Nuz is back. The group from Durban, which is led by West Ink boss Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo and founder of 108 Entertainment Mzi “Danger” Tshomela, will release their single Ngeke on Friday.

Big Nuz told Zimoja that they are releasing this album to honor their late songwriter and bandmate R Mashesha. R Mashesha was the group’s most important member, and his death left a hole in the group. We do not intend to replace him because we believe he cannot be replaced. We made the decision to return to the recording studio and release an album in his honour, as well as to reassure our fans that the band is still around and will not leave. “Big Nuz is here to stay as long as we are still alive,” Danger declared.

Danger informed Zimoja that the album’s title will be R Mashesha, Dollar R, a reference to the nicknames their deceased member was known by. Our fans need to be aware, as artists, that the fact that R Mashesha passed away did not necessitate that we endanger our legacy or the name of a band that is highly regarded in the South African music industry. We wanted to expand, so Mampintsha established his own business, West Ink, and I established my own, 108 Entertainment.

Although we weren’t breaking up, we were allowing one another space to grow. Every artist needs to create a legacy for themselves, according to Danger.

Danger requested that their followers continue to be understanding and supportive of the Big Nuz while collaborating with DJ TIRA once more.

We remark, “We know that Big Nuz fans didn’t understand why we decided to cease producing songs under the name of Big Nuz, but it was part of growing up.” We have returned, and this collection is dedicated to our late sibling R Mashesha, who played a significant role in how previous collections turned out, he said.

Danger revealed that the upcoming album was worked on by a number of artists, including Gqom Queen, Babes Wodumo, Afrotainment head DJ Tira, and Amapiano sensation Young Stunna. He also promised that the collection would be distributed through Afrotainment in collaboration with West Ink Records and 108 Amusement.
