Busiswa Gqulu has taken the music industry by storm after lending her vocals to DJ Zinhle’s track, ‘My Name Is’ and the artist sat down with Pearl Thusi to share her journey on #BehindTheStory.
Busiswa performs under the name Kalawa Chikita and she has reached instant stardom after the release of the hit with DJ Zinhle.
Since then, she has gone on to record her more singles that have achieved the same amount of success in the dance scene such as ‘Midnight Starring’.
Briefly.co.za learned that what sets her apart from all the other artists in music is that she is a spoken word poet. Her poetry is then taken and put to music.
TimesLIVE reports that after the episode of the MTV show aired, Busiswa’s fans were astonished to find out a bit more about the artist.
Some of the things that viewers learned were:
1) She has a tattoo of her stage name, Kalawa Chikita but she is slowly moving on from that persona and using her own name.
2) The artist makes R100k in a weekend, something most of us can only dream of.
3) Fans got to experience her raw poetry and want it to have a CD of it all on its own.
4) She is incredibly humble as she puts more focus on creating work that she is proud of instead of winning awards.
