LEADING amapiano artist Thabang “Jobe London” Thanyane has made a tribute song, titled Emoyeni, for late Killer Kau and Mpura.
Sakhile “Killer Kau” Hlatshwayo and Mongezi “Mpura” Stuurman died in a car accident last year.
Jobe London from Mapetla in Soweto, said the song was about the bond they had in studio and what they shared together.
He told Daily Sun that even though his friends were no longer with him, he loved and would represent them on stage.
“I lost my team and it hurts. They were everything to me and my career as we shared a lot together,” he said.
He said that the song would be on the album he worked on with Killer Kau, titled Killer London.
“It is so painful to realise that he won’t be here to see some of our work being celebrated, but we will connect in spirit.”
Last year, Jobe London released the single Injalo Lento,featuring Killer Kau and Zuma, produced by Busta 99. But he said being diagnosed with TB slowed him down.
The Sukendleleni hitmaker had to take a break, but he was now much better.
“I have been eating good food and have managed to get back to who I was before. I will be seeing my fans at big events soon, and I will also be releasing an album,” Jobe London said.
He added that though he didn’t know how people would receive him, he needed them to know that he was coming back with a lot of banger tracks.
