In the bid to say thank you, a Mandoza faithful and newly signed artist is set to release a song dedicated to the late kwaito legend.
Mandoza’s apprentice who referred to him as his mentor, wants to thank him for helping him change his life for good.
As a result, Pascal Mazibuko is set to release a song titled Mandoza uTshabalala next week.
After turning his life around from being a gangster to a musician, Mandoza signed Paschal under his Nkalakatha Records label. He was the first artist signed under the label and his release will be the first coming from the label.
The singer’s wife confirmed Pascal’s addition to the label during her husband’s funeral.
Prior to Mandoza’s death, the rapper wrote the song, encouraging him to get well soon. He also got a chance to perform it for his mentor a month before his death in September last year and later performed the song at the star’s funeral.

In a recent interview with Sowetan, Pascal said that he would probably still be living a life of crime if it had not been for Mandoza’s intervention in his life. Therefore, he will forever remain grateful to the late star for all the positive changes in his life.
“I will forever thank Mandoza for helping me. Today, I am a husband and a father of two. He was the one who made me realise that I have talent and I needed to stop doing crime. When I moved to Port Elizabeth to start afresh, he used to come and check on me,” Pascal said.
After putting up a great show at the Thank You SABC concert on September 10, 2016, the kwaito legend succumbed to a battle with cancer. Eight days after the performance, Mzansi went into mourning for the loss of one of the country’s biggest musical icons.
