Rapper, songwriter, and actor Siyabonga Nene (aka Big Zulu) hails from Johannesburg, South Africa. He is best known as a rapper. 'Donsa Nkabi', his debut single, helped him gain notoriety in 2016. Also known as "Big Zulu," he has been in the television programs "Isibaya," "One Mic," and "Uzalo." Riky Rick, the Grammy-winning South African rapper, and Intaba Yase Dubai collaborated on the critically acclaimed hit song "Mali Eningi" for the year 2020.
As a child, Siyabonga Nene was heavily influenced by the music of Maskandi and Isichathamiya. Also, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Phuzekemizi, and Imithente had an impact on him, as did others. He was a Taxi driver before he rose to fame.
In 2015, he earned a record deal with Universal Music that was his first big break. 'Ushun Wenkabi,' the band's self-titled debut album, came out last year. The platinum-selling single "Vuma Dlozi" was taken from the album. "Ungqongqoshe Woongqongqoshe" was his second album, and it was published in 2019. There's also a number-one single from the album, "Ama Million," which peaked at number 5 on the iTunes charts. In 2020, the album was nominated for a South African Music Award. "Mali Eningi," his follow-up single, features South African rapper Riky Rick and Intaba Yase Dubai. The song has earned a platinum certification twice.
