The kwaito hitmaker’s legacy Mduduzi aka Mandoza will be honoured by his holdings through the release of two songs ‘Back for More’ and ‘Mandoza Tshabalala’ as well as a clothing collaboration with Magents.
Back For More, which was produced by Gabi le Roux, will be released on Wednesday January 17, his birthday.
According to a statement released by the Mandoza Holdings, the group wants to release the singles and merchandise to mark the star’s birthday.
The statement read: “January 17 2018 marks the birthdate of Mandoza who would be turning 40 years old. We would like to celebrate his birthday with the launch of digital single “Back for More” and the launch of his clothing range in partnership with Magents Clothing”.
According to his former manager, Vaughn Eaton, they will also be launching Mduduzi’s clothing range in partnership with Magents Clothing.
“We’re doing this to celebrate him and also to keep his rich legacy alive,” Le Roux said. “In launching his clothing line, Mandoza Estate has also partnered with retail stores across the country for the manufacturing and distribution of the apparel. The iTsotsi Yase Kasi T-shirts are a sample of what is to come as we develop the full clothing range for release later on.”
Mduduzi ‘Mandoza’ Tshabalala died in 2016 after a battle with Cancer. The star began treatment in 2015.
