Double MOBO Award Winner Stormzy Explores South Africa’s Music Scene In New Documentary

From South London to South Africa

AFTER bonding over beats and PERi-PERi at Nando’s Music Exchange in London this summer, South African DJ/producer Muzi invited Stormzy to explore his homeland.

From South London to South Africa provides a unique glimpse into Durban’s emerging music scene, where taxi drivers are the tastemakers and cars are the clubs. Comparing life as aspiring musicians, Muzi introduces Stormzy to the people, genres and culture that shaped his high energy, hard-edge electronic sound ahead of his EP release in December.

After an impromptu freestyle with Muzi’s childhood friends, the pair meets Rudeboyz, a producer trio taking the townships by storm with Qqom – a genre Stormzy describes as South Africa’s answer to Funky House.

The trip was inspired by the meeting at Nando’s Music Exchange in September, where Muzi and Stormzy joined chart-topper Example and beatbox champion Reeps One to mentor a group of twenty emerging musicians at the Roundhouse, Camden. Mixing sounds from South Africa and the UK, the workshop celebrated Nando’s South African roots as part of a two year partnership with the Roundhouse Project.

Muzi’s EP, FIRE FX drops on December 4.
