Nestum is planning a huge comeback in the Mzansi music industry. The now 42-year-old artist was only 15 back in the day when she became a professional recording rapper.
Nestum, real name Zanele Nyakale-Peterson, shot to fame a long time ago when she was a member of Kwaito group, Abashante. Abashante, Boom Shaka and Bongo Maffin, among other groups, were very popular in Mzansi when Kwaito still ruled the airwaves. Nestum is now ready to mix her Kwaito skills with Amapiano.
The radio host shared that she has fallen in love with the yanos just like other Kwaito stars who have switched to the genre. Nestum believes Amapiano is a Kwaito sub-genre.
According to Drum, Nestum revealed that she's on a mission to record her new EP, which she will drop in 2022. In an interview, the Lesedi FM presenter said she would love to work with Amapiano heavyweights, DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small. She's also planning to feature a few veteran Mzansi musos.
