Mdu Masilela Is On A Mission To Save Kwaito


In all his ‘baeness’, kwaito legend Mdu Masilela has revealed that he is on a mission to revive kwaito music to prove that the genre is not dead.

Mdu said in a recent interview that he will be heeding the calls of his fans who demanded that he come back to the industry.

The iconic singer is not just coming back for the sake of it, he’s returning to the music industry because he wants to save kwaito.

“My fans demanded that I come back and save Kwaito and I am back,” he said.

Mdu maintained a positive outlook that kwaito will never die. With the death of kwaito star Mandoza, fans feared for the fate of the genre. However, Mdu is on a mission to revive it and maintains that as long as the people are there, kwaito will never die.

“Kwaito is not dead, as long as the townships still exist, Kwaito will always be there.”

In the meantime, Mdu promised that he would be releasing singles with some of South Africa’s big shots including Cassper Nyovest and Emtee. Other artists who are willing to work with him will also be welcomed with open arms. This will have to do for now because he won’t be dropping an album anytime soon.

Earlier this month, Mdu revealed that he can’t wait to go on stage once again. It’s a calling that he has tried to run away from but it keeps beckoning on him.

“I miss performing. When I do it, I don’t sweat, it comes naturally. I was trying to run away from it, but it’s my calling, my purpose.”

Though he has been missing in action for a while, kwaito legend Mdu Masilela was a pioneer of kwaito music during the 90s.
