Director Cube who has filmed music videos for big stars like Burna Boy, Wizkid, DJ Tira and DJ Maphorisa is now venturing into music.
The 39-year-old, whose real name is Siphephelo Ngwenya, will be releasing a single titled Kuphuka featuring Lady Du on Friday, 27 May.
Director Cube, who will now also be known as by his stage name Blackbwoy, spoke to SunBuzz about the transition.
“I’ve worked with a lot of celebrity artists from around the world, filming their videos.
“And it is the big stars like Burna Boy and Wizkid who inspired me to start making music again. I used to be a musician but after I realised I was good at directing, I stuck to that. However, I am back now,” he said.
“I decided now is the right time to return as I had already worked with the people I’ve always wanted to work with.
“I am still directing but the next six to eight years will see me recording,” he said.
Blackbwoy said Khuphuka, which mean rise, is what he plans to see his career doing.
“This is the song I am using to get into the industry. It’s my first song with Lady Du. I initially worked on the song alone but she heard it and loved it. She then added her verse and it became Khuphuka,” he said.
Blackbwoy said he believes he’s the glue that’ll bring Africa together.
“I am currently signed to a Congolese record label and I have worked with a lot of African stars. Here at home, I’ve worked with gqom and amapiano stars.
“I believe I can bring all the artists I’ve worked with together and that’s my goal – to bring African stars together because that’s what Blackbwoy is about,” he said.
He said he plans to launch the single at Propaganda in Tshwane soon.
