DJ Sbu shared a video of AKA and ProKid making some music from way back when, which really brought back some memories.
In a short video that DJ Sbu shared, you see the rappers jamming to music, presumably while one of them was working on a song. They were also joined by radio host, Kamza Mbatha.
At that time, ProKid was signed to DJ Sbu's TS Records, but just before his untimely death, ProKid was distant in his music and hadn't released songs like he did before. He was assumed to be suffering from depression.
Last year, DJ Sbu offered to share all of ProKid's earnings with his family to be fair. He spoke to TshisaLive and said that if he got into a contract and he passed on in the music industry, the company that signed him retains the right to keep the agreement between them as it was.
"So what it means to hand over the masters or the full (ownership) rights of Pro’s music to his family, it means we as TS Records are declaring our standing contract null and void to institute a new contract that says that whatever profits Pro’s music makes from now on, a 100% of the profits belong to his family," said Sbu when he spoke to TshisaLive.
During the tribute to ProKid, AKA mentioned that he met Pro when he was still a skinny coloured guy with an American twang.
"I wanted to be an artist but at the time I was just a corky, know-it-all, skinny, coloured kid with an American twang," said AKA.
The Supa Mega added that he and Linda came from different worlds and he had no reason to uplift him. AKA said he used the studio sessions to soak up everything that he could. He also shared that he looked at Pro and thought, this guy is something he had never seen before.
Yesterday, Briefly.co.za reported that DJ Sbu, who's real name is Sbusiso Leope, is a businessman and DJ of note. He has been in the music industry for years and knows the taste of great success. He would not have reached the number one spot on Briefly.co.za's list of richest Mzansi celebs without knowing how to seriously hustle.
Sbu has written a book on how to hustle, The Art of Hustling: Sell or Surrender, and he strongly believes that it should be included in high schools across the country. We take a look at the three times that Sbu showed Mzansi exactly how this hustle thing is done.
