Zakwe is in a celebratory mood after one of his albums has finally reached gold status. The rapper's third studio album titled Cebisa has recently been certified gold.
This is the first time that the KZN-based rapper has reached gold status in his rap career. The album consisted of hits such as Sebentin, More Blessings, Daai Deng and many other great tracks.
On the album released in 2018, the star featured artists such as Cassper Nyovest, Kwesta, Ma-E and AB Crazy, among others.
Briefly.co.za reported that Zakwe recently hinted that he is quitting vernac rap. The star, who raps mostly in Zulu, wants to spit in English from now on.
The move by the musician, at the time, was aimed at gaining more fan base in order to reach his first gold status in his 10 years in the cut-throat music industry.
The likes of Nasty C - who is also from KZN - spits most of his lyrics, if not all, in English.
