BULAWAYO’S upcoming gospel rap artiste Sipho Ndlovu (21), popularly known as Hood Legend (Gunz) in music circles, has released a track narrating his turbulent journey in the industry.
Ndlovu told Standard Style that he almost quit in frustration as he tried to make inroads into the cut-throat arts sector.
“l released a track titled Depressed, which basically talks about how society views individuals and the struggle one faces to achieve recognition in life,” Ndlovu said, adding the track seeks to inspire would-be artistes not to quit before making any mark.
Ndlovu said his music also seeks to shed light on his real-life experiences.
“My motivation about music was basically drawn from my struggles and obstacles that l am facing as an individual. The only way to share all that has been through music,” he said.
The musician, says he has recorded 21 songs, added his music was getting rave reviews from his fans on social media and radio stations.
“So far, so good, from the audience side, my music has made an impact and people are reacting positively, especially on the story-telling side,” Ndlovu said.
“A lot of people have commented mostly about the content of the songs and I am really happy and proud to know that there are people out there supporting me all the way. As for the radio stations, l have not submitted much of my work, but l have a few that I have sent via online platforms.”
The artiste said his music is available on online plat forms such as Reverbnation, Audiomack, YouTube and SoundCloud. Ndlovu is pursuing a degree in Human Resources Management at Midlands State University.
