Hip Hop Pantsula
Pantsula completed his high schooling at St. Alban's College in Pretoria. He was initially part of a group called Verbal Assassins. In 199, he and his school friends met with producer Chicco Twala who produced their debut album, Party. However, the band split soon after the release of Party. Pantsula had his next album, Introduction, produced by singer and producer Isaac Mthethwa and recorded in different South African ethnic tongues such as Setswana, isiZulu and Sesotho.
Pantsula frequently uses the phrase "Maf-town" in his music, which refers to his hometown, Mafikeng, of South Africa's North West province. He was honoured in September 2007 in the inaugural Mafikeng Golden Stars Awards held at the Mmabana Convention Centre.
Pantsula released Acceptance Speech in December 2007 with its first single, Music & Lights, whose music video features Danny K and US R&B Star Amerie. In December 2009 Pantsula released his seventh studio album Dumela ("Belief"). He co-chairs a record label, Babyphat Records.
