South Africa

Radio123 are a duo comprised of Nyameko ´Sipho´Nkondlwane & Simangaliso Mfula; both well versed musicians with extensive live performance experience in the South African music scene. The sound they have developed over the years is funk infused dubbed the “Mandela Pop” which they describe as a sound that reflects the rainbow spectrum that South Africa has become. This sound sees Radio123 telling township stories in the many dialects that Simangaliso hops and skits through; rap & singing switching between the two with the ease of a seasoned entertainer. They flawlessly weave highjink tales to the swing of Nyameko’s trumpet and whip audiences into a call and response frenzy with a mix of serendipitously honest lyrics delivered in Afro-funk melodies over a powerful rhythm section.
