04 December 2020 | Johannesburg: Talented hitmaker MVZZLE releases second single, featuring Botswana based vocalist, Han -C. This is the second single of his untitled album, scheduled for release in 2021. The hitmaker’s debut as producer and feature on DJ Zinhle’s massive hit Umlilo which featured Rethabile, is ready to carve his solo music career. Kea Rata’s release comes fresh off the recent news that Umlilo has reached triple platinum status.

The single, which from the first drop of the beat, and the smooth runs of Han -C, make it clear that the following 6 minutes are going to be ear orgasmic. On this single, we hear the hitmaker affirm, what is becoming a sound synonymous with his name. The song which is beautifully written and delivered by Han -C tells the story of an unconditional love.


Says MVZZLE: “I think this song, really captures my signature vibe. The single captures the beginning of what will become a sound synonymous with MVZZLE. Once again, it was  Dj Zinhle who pointed me in the direction of Han -C, when she shared a post from his Instagram and after hearing him sing, I reached out to him and ‘Kea Rata’ was born. The collaboration between Ndu Shezi and I on my first single and now with Han – C, sets the tone of what people can expect from me in the future. I enjoy working with vocalists who are still on the rise”

In 8 years, the 25 year old Producer and DJ has gone from playing at local clubs to placing third in SABC 1’s televised Dj competition, 1’s and 2’s to gracing stages such as the DSTV Mzansi’s Viewers’ Choice Awards, Motsepe Foundation Celebration, and Major League Gardens amongst others. All this, whilst collecting his first #1 with Zinhle’s ‘Umlilo’.


About MVZZLE:  


Born Gift S. Morukhuladi, in Musina and raised in a village called Mountain View – to a mom who’s a businesswoman and a dad who was the Conductor of the military band, at the time. Gift, recalls his earliest childhood memories growing up with his grandmother, before at age 8, he moved to Polokwane International Gateway to be with his parents. At this point his dad had gone from Conductor to Band Master at the SA Army Band.  

In 2016, as a grade 6 learner, MVZZLE was so consumed by music that he taught himself how to play drums via his desk and ruler. 2008, was a defining year for him when his brother introduced him to Reason 4, a software used to produce music. Initially producing Hip-Hop and R&B – it was only in 2016, when he started producing house music. Making the difficult decision to drop out of college to pursue music and the assistance of SAACYF (South African Arts and Culture Youth Forum) who gave him opportunities to play at events such as Major League Gardens, Mapungubwe Arts Festival and Motsepe Foundation amongst others.


The wheels of fortune turned in his favour in 2018, when he entered SABC 1’s Dj competition, 1’s and 2’s – where he placed third. After the competition, MVZZLE contacted renowned DJ and entrepreneur, Zinhle with two beats, one of which is now the smash hit ‘Umlilo’ featuring Rethabile – who had earlier DM’d,  Zinhle on Instagram proposing a collaboration with her.

MVZZLE’s musical journey has been nothing short of fate and determination at play. From his stage name given to him by his class mates which means the, “open end of the barrel of the gun” which is quite ironic considering his father’s position as the Band Master of the SA Army Band. 

His official debut single, Uvalo ft Ndu Shezi to be released under Warner Music SA is scheduled to drop April 24th and once again proves that this 25 year old, does indeed, spit out hits like bullets out of a MVZZLE.
