“No longer just a hip-hop figure” Zulu drops new solo Uniform Swag


“Today it’s the birth of Zulu Mkhathini. I say this because three months ago Zulu Mkhathini was conceived. I believe that my brand was somewhat in the womb when I did Ultimate House Party.

“So I have been slowly unveiling a bit of myself. I’m no longer that kid that was Dash. I’m no longer just a hip-hop figure. That name was kind of restricting me,” he explains.

Uniform Swag features DJ Tira and was produced by DJ Maphorisa and DJ Catzico. Mkhathini describes his new sound as a complete departure from his work with Dreamteam.

“Many people can call it gqom or even say I’m rapping on it or call it electro-dance. People can say a lot of things, but I call it ‘genre-free’ because I fuse a lot of different genres into one, which is the direction I’m trying to go as a solo artist,” he points out.
