Ciza Recounts on hit Single “Bank Notification” with DJ Maphorisa:
Rapper and Afrobeats artist Ciza made an entrance into the music industry last year with the release of his debut singles Come Alive and Adje, which took Africa by storm with over 1 million views on YouTube and hitting the Top 5 charts across national radio stations in South Africa and Nigeria. Ciza decided to tap into the yanos scene as he released his debut EP titled ‘Golden Boy Pack’ featuring industry heavyweights Major League, Maphorisa, Abidoza, and Tanzania’s Superstar Marioo.
Though the pandemic was a negative impact on most artists, Ciza too, however, his career continued to skyrocket. “This has been a tough time for many families and artists. I just want my music to make people feel good and bring relief and joy to people suffering from emotional, physical, and psychological trauma. I hope this will soothe the pain of hardships experienced during this global pandemic,” he opened up.
He is the son of music industry giants Nhlanhla and TK Nciza, so music runs in his blood.“My parents played a huge role in the artist I am today. They taught me discipline. They did not want me to use their names to get ahead or to use the privilege, but would mostly encourage me to work hard, create my own name and build my own brand. I won’t lie and say there is no pressure, but I never want to be known to just ride on my parent’s name,” he said.
