#4:. Boom Shaka
Back when kwaito was in its infancy, the likes of Boom Shaka – who were on the pioneering Kalawa Jazmee record label – were at the forefront. The group comprised of two guys and two girls; Theo (singer) and Junior (selektah) as well as Thembi(rapper) and Lebo (lead singer), respectively.
The two ladies were trendsetters who wore luminous colourful outfits, extra-long box-braids and danced in a manner that was passed raunchy. It was the early 90s and these ladies were pushing some very big envelopes. And, as their first hit single, It’s About Time, proved, they had the talent to back it all up.
They both went on to have the most successful solo careers of the four, one of which was cut short when Lebo tragically passed away in the early naughties.
