9. Worse T

The success of his 2017 My Feelings 2 mixtape is still impacting the Manguzi rap scene in 2018. Worse T is easily one of the most influential artists in Manguzi, even Foh publicly admitted that his Fohmation was partly inspired by Worse T’s My Feelings tape. Worse was able to stay a topic of conversation with features on Uthando by JD records and stole the show on Tragic’s New World. His own effort Rich and Yehlisa were also received well my fans and peers

8. MBee

Mbee had moderate music success with features, he gave us what can be easily  be announced as the verse of the year on I Still Believe By Chippa. He also showed off his mc prowess on Open The Doors. However MBee’s claim to the list is the success of his clothing brand ‘Equal World’ which is seemingly taking over Manguzi and has led to other business opportunities such a restaurants and car wash, on top of that he created a platform for other artist by hosting shows. This is legimate hustle and it stems from music.

5.Clayo La Fest

2018 Manguzi overdosed on Clayo, no pun intended. The Overdose hit maker had a magnificent year, realizing arguably the song of the year and toping it with a video of the year. What makes Clayo amazing is that he was able to keep the hype if his Overdose single trough out the whole year. He gained a lot of respect from peers and gained a lot of features, making him the most wanted of 2018

4. Tragic

Tragic is in the running for artist of the year. He’s business and music and overall contribution to the Manguzi hip hop scene is undeniable. 1stly, in 2018 we saw his clothing brand shoot to the top and became one of the big 3 brand in Manguzi. He continues his momentum with the Polo music video which was well a received. However Tragic most claim to fame is the consistency in the music, he released a number of singles that connected well with the crowd. Songs like Why, Rockstar,  7 Years Old, New World and Lonely remake. Tragic’s music and clothing brand are really putting him on the map.

3.  Chippa

Chippa finaly dropped his 21 song project ‘Make It Happen’ in 2018 and it was well received by the public and also sold a lot of copies. The project was a blend of rap and afro sound and was able to attract the older audience de it mature content.  Chippa was able to use his standup comedy popularity to introduce his music to the people. His music success opened opportunities for business ventures such a printing which he now can be credited as there reason for the high number of new clothing brand popping up in Manguzi.

   1. Foh

When you talking about dominance, you are talking about Foh. Foh kicked off the year with the most successful Venting remix, and then dropped a video for it.  Beside appearing on a number of features, he had success with single of his own such as Ex Yam which was well received before it even officially dropped. He then dropped Thesha and what most call a video of the year. He certified his dominance with the release of his Fohmation mixtape which some claim to be the best mixtape in Manguzi history. The first mixtape with Side A and Side B, which showcases his ability to make romance songs, trap and kasi rap. FOH also signed a deal with promotion company  Easy Live to appear in a number of their events in Durban of in one of them he received praise from legendary actor Kenneth Nkosi. Foh wrapped the year with  the GMG tour promoting his tape in Durban.

The number one spot is reserved for some we believe is ready to ascend to the next level, and Foh is definitely that artist with no doubt.
