Dwayne started writing songs and rapping in 2010 as an underground rapper alongside Young Twizzy. Due to lack of confidence and resources Dwayne could not record earlier. The singer, rapper and motivational speaker grew up in a God fearing family that loves music, especially his uncle who used to play music in his car when taking the talented youngster to school, “my uncle loved music and made me to understand and love music even more.” Through his love for music, the aspiring rapper made it his dream to become a musician.
Imali reached 1190 downloads in one day and is air played live on radio. “I didn’t believe my eyes, I felt like I was dreaming and anytime I was going to wake up from it but it was a reality and I thank God that I have such fans.” The song aims to inspire people to “Panda Zaka” (hustle for money) to put food on the table. The young dreamer stood against all odds despite the challenges that come with this music industry and managing himself to make his dream become a reality. Thulani owns a company called Trend Motion Entertainments in partnership with Bluevine, Funcky Fashion and many more.
