Spotlight on Brickz
This Kwaito artist was born in Zola and later discovered by the ever popular producer DJ Cleo. At one point the two were so close that Brickz named his son after the producer. Brickz began his professional career by singing in gospel choirs, before performing in his first group. This is where he received his nickname Half Brickz because he was the youngest person in the band. His debut album Face Brick is a Kwaito album with a Ragga influence. The album was based on his life, his love life, experiences growing up in the township and features a track about his late mother. Along with his new look, his lyrics have been cleaned up as well. He is now a part of TS Records that is owned by another former Cleo protégé.
