The 24 year old, Soweto born rapper has announced on his Instagram that he will be featured on the Ellen Show today. 

Who is he?

Born Nsikayesizwe David Junior Ngcobo, he started rapping at the age of 9 with the encouragement of his older brother, Siyabonga. He went on to release his first mix tape at the age of 14 titled One Kid, a Thousand Coffins.

His big break came when he released his first studio Album, Bad Hair under the controversial label, Mabala Noise.
