Noxolo Mongwe is a South African hip hop artist popularly known by her stage name NoxC
She grew up in a township called Kamhlushwa. “I loved music a lot and at times I would bunk school just to watch Channel O (it was playing on sabc 1 from the morning till mid day). I was doing very great with my studies and at some point i was called ‘Ms clever’.”
Having been introduced to rap by her uncle who used to rap along Tupac’s and Bone thugs songs , when she was around 10 years old.
When we asked her about some of her accomplishments and failures , she went on to say : “In 2013 I entered the shiz niz mixtape competition and made it to the semi-finals. Made it to number 2 on the Hype magazine newcomer’s delight edition. Got featured on Khuli Chana’s music videos: Tswa daar and Sjiva Sfebulous. A lot of personal things happened from 2015, I got depressed and stopped recording music and performing.”
” Everytime I watched rappers I used to cry during the time when I couldn’t continue with my music because of the passion that I had and I decided to pick myself up. The passion that I have for rap motivates me to keep on pushing. My fans and people who believe in me keeps me going because I do not want to insult and disappoint them. The fact I know I’m very talented, I cannot just let it go down the drain.”
She hopes to win serveral awards in future, and to have her songs being played everywhere. “That would make me happy.” She said.
“I intend to learn more about the industry so that I can help other artists that I will sign under my upcoming record label.”
When asked about the reason why she decided to join Mzansi arts and media Awards she said :
“Ive been away from music for a long time, I entered the competition to show people that I am still there and still killing. I want people to know about me and my talent. If I win the competition I will use the prize to pay for PR ,that’s one thing im running short of to further my music career.”
