From John Cena to Missy Elliot, Sho Madjozi has caught the interest of global heavyweights!
Johannesburg, South Africa – Sho Madjozi dropped her new track “John Cena”, on Colors, a prestigious music platform late last week and within hours was the topic of conversation around the world.
Maya Christinah Xichavo Wegerif (born 9 May 1992), known professionally as Sho Madjozi, is a South African rapper, singer, songwriter, actress and poet.
Madjozi uses a Tsonga signature style concerning her music and fashion sense. Being unapologetically proud of her culture, Tsonga, she commonly plays with the traditional wear. Madjozi usually performs the indigenous xibelani dance where she wears a skirt called a tinguvu around her waist, then shakes the waist which creates attentiveness on her performances. Besides her culture-influenced style, Madjozi dismisses a colourful image with many elements attached.
Superbalist writer Kenny Morifi-Winslow added, “I think there is an interesting transfer of energy when our favourite parts of public figures become the things that we hid from ourselves or tried to change”, commending Madjozi.
Madjozi earned recognition following the release of her debut album Limpopo Champions League, which experimented in fusing elements from various genres including hip hop and Tsonga music, and her new song called “John Cena” has caught the attention of many global heavyweights!
WWE, John Cena and now Missy Elliot are all commending the artist for her new track!
John Cena started the global conversation off by Instagramming a photo of the South African artist to his 12 million followers while Missy Elliot had one word to say… “SUPA” while tweeting the performance to her 6,7 million followers.
We’re guessing this is only the start of the global recognition for this amazing local artist! Congrats Sho Madjozi!!!
