Black Motion

Black Motion came together in early 2010 – when Robert (DJ Murda) Mahosana and percussionist Thabo “Smol” Mabogwane decided to work together. They had already been producing music separately for years before they met. From the onset this partnership led to string of respectable production that have been lighting up the dance floors in Southern Africa.


Black Motion has enjoyed support from big name south African DJs and party goers alike. Their music has been featured on a number of CD compilations in South Africa and Bhana Shilolo and Set Me Free are on healthy rotation in the leading commercial radio stations. They have worked with names such as DJ Oskido, DJ Mthi, QT, award-winning vocalist Bantu Soul, to name but a few.

Pretoria (Tshwane) is known as the capital of house music in South Africa and Black Motion are flying the flag for the city. The duo team up with another successful musician, Jah Rich, to work on a track called Banane Mavoko. Jah Rich provided lyrical chants that are simply magical. This song is now the biggest dance song currently in South Africa.

Banane Mavoko, meaning Clap Your Hands, is dance floor favourite for all. Unfortunately Jah Rich lost his life in latter part of 2010 but he will be forever remember for his chants on this production. The duo is currently working on their debut album which is to be released in the 2nd half of 2011.

Black Motion

Their first year in the music industry has been fruitful with lessons learnt along the way. They have managed to anticipate the different sounds that appeal to the dance floor junky and their music is testament to that. On stage, Black Motion makes use of vocalists and keyboard players to support their DJ act. They are rapidly gaining respect for their live acts. If the work they have done so far is anything to go by, 2011 will be an even bigger year for the young lads from Soshanguve.
