Takalani Lucky Ramuneyiwa born and bred in Venda, Limpopo is a renowned South African house music DJ/Producer. It all started when his step dad bought him a small LG sound system when he was younger, he would lock himself in his room playing music all day and night, playing different genres then eventually he fell inlove with house music. Inspired by the likes of DJ Fresh, Oskido and DJs @works he learned djiing, ever since he has been living his dream.

King Mshivo or King Kong, believes his love for music came before his parents met "I was born with it, I was a DJ/Producer way before my mom and dad met"

Began his career around 2007 and has so far released a online album in 2010 alongside Dr Gee titled "Royal Treatment", In 2016 King Mshivo released his debut solo album "Traveling Tape" which featured Another Man featuring P Tempo which was later that year released in UK under LW soulful house essentials.

I asked the big homer how the fans received/responded to his album. "It was a success, from the production work which had the likes of Stagz Jazz, Da vynalist, P tempo, VPS. The final product was a hit, the sales were good, turned up launches and the fans gave it thumbs up. So I would say it did well!! Sending big love to all who got the Traveling Tape and all praises to our Lord Jesus".

 

With so many house music DJs/Producers king Kong explained to me what makes his style unique "I always try to bring out who I am in my music, character, emotions.. it makes my style differ from others, also I believe in working with other musicians, so we always try and create some different sounds all the time"

King Mshivo recently started his own record label KMProductions where he will release his 2nd most anticipated album "Traveling Tape 2, which has 12 hot n fresh bangers, some new talented vocalists, more live instruments on the music."it is a brand new vibe that is about to turn up mzanzi" he says.

To close of our convo I asked him what are some of his biggest achievements to date, besides sharing stages with some of the country’s biggest house DJ. "I would say starting my own productions company, were we teach the business within music and Djing to young kids around Venda. I have been in the industry for around 11 years now and getting to help someone follow their dreams by teaching and sharing my experiences with them that is my biggest achievement".
