Big Zulu Drops 4th Studio Album ‘Ngises’ Congweni’

By @AtlehangMoloi on 03/27/2024 in Projects You Should Hear

Award-winning rapper and Inkabi records label owner, Big Zulu has released his fourth studio album titled ‘Ngises' Congweni’, which means the peak of a mountain.

He chose to name this album ‘Ngises Congweni’ because He has made it to the highest level in the music industry and has become an inspiration to many. It also represents where he was born in ‘Bergville’ which is a mountainous place and has one of the highest mountains in the country, Drakensberg.

‘Ngises Congweni’ is an album dedicated to the people that have guided and supported him throughout all the years. This album is influenced and dominated by an Afro Pop sound rather than what we used to know Big Zulu for, which was a bar to bar rapper.

In this album, he shows his versatility, musical growth and that he is not a one-dimensional artist, as he can transition into different spheres of musical genres. He has matured into a sound we call Ushuni which is a blend of Afro Pop, Maskandi and Hip-Hop, and serves as a bridge between traditional and urban music. Big Zulu is at the forefront of this new genre, and this is what this album represents.

The sound of ‘Ngises Congweni’ caters for both the young and the older generation. It’s a offers a message which speaks about the matters of love, matters of the community, hope, death, and poverty.
