- Sho's career is on fire
- The Tsonga musician does not classify herself under one genre
- What matters to Sho most is that she is a lit artist and a writer, not what category she falls into
Sho Madjozi has been doing very well for herself, but there are those in the hip-hop scene that are questioning if she should be called a rapper.
It is no secret that Sho’s career is on fire. Sho impressed and bagged the Best New International Act at the BET Awards, which were held in Los Angeles.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the Tsonga musician had her say with regards to this while speaking to Slikour and Ayanda MVP on Slikour Online’s #WhatSAHipHopSaid. Sho shared her feelings about people constantly asking the question if she is a rapper or hip-hop artist.
For all those that care, the Huku hit-maker said that she really is not the type of person nor does she understand the reason behind people placing artists in certain genres. She explained that it does not faze her which category people are willing to place her in.
Sho said it does, however, fascinate her. Sho went on to say that her first recorded song she did was in fact hip-hop. Looking back at her debut album, Sho says four songs can be classified as gqom, among her purely hip-hop songs. So as far as she is concerned, those who want to argue can do it amongst themselves!
Irrespective of the debate about her genre, Sho stated that the only thing that matters is that she is a damn good writer. She expressed that her passion is writing, and having studied writing she has been doing it since she was very young.
The incredible beaut has found that her interest lay in rap and writing rap. She took note of what others were doing and she said to herself that she is capable of doing as well, if not better, than anyone out there!
