After years trying to make it in the music industry, hip-hop group Ugie Mob finally got their breakthrough with the release of their single this week.
The Ugie-based group’s latest single titled, Sangena was released on Tuesday, under a Johannesburg record label, Stickstainment.
This came through the support of the Elundini local municipality.
The rap group is made up of, Sivuyile “SVG” Makhwelo, Abongile “Magqalo” Mjuleni, Siviwe “Preacher” Mdlokovana, Sinethemba “Decomposer” Mgaqanga and Lucky “Gigabyte” Mjobo.
Speaking to the Saturday Dispatch this week during their promotional tour, the group said the single’s release had been a long time coming for them.
“We were two groups before deciding to form Ugie Mob. In 2011 we entered the Elundini local municipality talent search, Dare to Dream.
“Even though we didn’t win, we took second place and got an opportunity to work with Sliq Angel at his My Roots Entertainment Studio in Johannesburg,” Makhwelo said.
