Meet That-Ego Shaun | A Rising Hip Hop Star set to take SA Hip Hop to The World
My interests in music is production and composing original music,
My story goes back to 2010 when I started music, born in Burgersfort, Limpopo and raised in a small town in Mpumalanga called Lydenburg. Though I started as a Hip Hop dancer in 2008 then gradually shifted my interests to music. In 2010 I approached a local producer by the name of Oracle Shaydee, He invited my crew and I to come record our first single at his studio and it’s
been music from there on.
My crew and I started recording more and releasing more in our hometown, and we also started performing more at high school events. My interests in music is production and composing music, so in 2012 when I graduated from high school I decided to go further my music knowledge at a college in Johannesburg, but I took a gap year in 2013, I moved to Witbank and got a job there at the mall. But I was still doing music, and working took a lot of my time, so later in 2013 I quit the job, and that’s when I moved to Johannesburg in 2014. Since my crew and I haven’t been seeing a lot of each other because we all went to different locations after highschool, I made new relationships in Johannesburg.
I reunited with a highschool friend of mine by the name of Benny Afroe and we’ve been making music together till this day. And my main producer is my younger brother (Dimpho Mkhonza) who goes by the name “Dee”, who produces most of my singles in every project, 21 years of age and he’s doing legendary work for both Benny Afroe and I. And another member of my team is one of my old crew members, “Kat Michaels”. And he’s featured on a lot of my previous singles in my “Regrets EP” which dropped 2018.
Benny and I started recording and releasing music together, and the most recent work we put out together is a single called ‘Pray’, and the video was shot in Bangkok, Dubai airport and South Africa, showing the experience wehad all the way.
And there’s also a documentary that shows our experience overseas as well as the performances we had in Bangkok.
In July 2017 I released my 1st EP titled “Drugs And Pills’’ which had 7 master singles, A launch concert was hosted in my hometown Lydenburg. And some of the fans left with a CD copy. Then in 2018 Dee and I produced Benny Afroe’s EP titled “Jupiter EP, which is available on Soundcloud. After then I shifted focus to my 2nd EP which dropped July 26 2018, Produced by Dee and myself.
And the LP has good reviews from the people that has listened to it, I was featured on an online article about upcoming artists who shouldn’t be slept on. My music is now available on the Morgeez Artists Portal.
