Zungu Mpikeleli "Riot"
Compositeur | Rappeur/se


DR

 

Compositeur de musique de films. Il est Sud-Africain.

South African Film Composer.

It would be an unfair assumption to state that Riot's career started when he joined Gang Of Instrumentals. The truth is, that's where we all got to know the kwaThema resident after his voice reverberated over Teargas' "Champions" a song that took South Africa by storm and put Riot on the map. Crowned ‘'Mzansi's Finest" after he won a Castle Lager Hip Hop competition that required him to battle Hip Hop performers around South Africa, Riot (who used to go by the name "Bongo Riot") boldly stood out with his Ragga/Reggae rhymes as a member of SAMA winning urban-pop group from Johannesburg, Gang Of Instrumentals, whose members included the songstress (Tumi) and rapper Mandla N.

In the shedding of his dreadlocks, he emancipated himself and aptly dropped the "Bongo" from his stage name. In the quest for independence and to further showcase his skills, Riot signed with TS Records with a licensing deal from EMI Music/CCP Records and released a 14-track album that kicks off with a nostalgic intro that flows into the second track - "Far Away Bride" and you immediately know that you're in for something special with the Reggae/Ragga album. The bulk of the production is from the legendary Robbie Malinga as well as fellow stable mate at TS Records, Lungelo and also boasts a feature from Lungelo on "Life" and Zahara on a track called "Thetha Nami". The album, which is suitably titled "I Am an African", is a melting pot of Reggae/Ragga/Hip Hop and Afro-Soul sounds.

Riot, born Mphikeleli Zungu, took a bold step with his solo career channeling his love for music through a music genre that isn't too popular in South Africa amongst the youth in comparison to House; Kwaito and Hip Hop. However, with his leading single "Saka Leyena" receiving positive feedback in the form of radio play, it has proved to be a step in the right direction for the innovative musician who is setting to embark on a country-wide tour to promote his album.
