Sandile “Young Stunna” Msimango says he’s grateful to have producer and DJ Kabza De Small help him navigate his musical career and stardom, seeing him as a father figure in the industry.
The amapiano star, who launched his debut album Notumato last week, paid homage to Kabza In his hit song Adiwele. In it he reflected on the great impact he has had in his life since they met in April this year.
“I am thanking Kabza De Small [in that song].t’s been a short period of time [knowing him], but he taught me a lot. A lot would have gone wrong if I didn’t listen to him,” Young Stunna said.
Young Stunna, who is signed to Kabza’s Piano Hub record label, said he appreciates being able to spend time with the amapiano star.
“I spend a lot of time with Kabza De Small. I call him Papa, I call him my father. He treats us [the team working under the label] like we’re his children and makes us feel at home. We’re here to make music and learn about life. We’ve got that father and son relationship going on because he teaches us a lot.
“He shows us everything. He makes us understand how everything is going to go and how you’re going to feel and when you go through it, you appreciate every moment remembering he told you about it. So it’s a blessing to be able to be shown the right way,” he said.
Having been endorsed by many renowned artists on social platforms and being affiliated with legends has been “a blessing”, he said, giving him the perfect foundation to skyrocket his promising career.

Lusanda’s role on Scandal recently came to an end in July and speaking to Drum magazine, she said she stayed longer on the show because of her captivating performances.
“I do not think Boniswa was supposed to stay on the show for so long. Also, when I got the gig, she was a supporting role. Through my performance I was able to be given more storylines and there were always curveballs.
“Playing the same character for five years is not easy but because of how her story has changed over the years, it has been a challenge and a great adventure. When I first got the role, Boniswa was supposed to be this sweet, warm, and loving woman. Then about two years in, she was turned into a villain, and I went into a dark place effortlessly in order to bring her to life.”
She said, “Where do I even start?! What to say?!This is a curtain call I guess. Take a bow ma’am! To have taken the responsibility of teaching us to love, hate, respect, vouch and even root for Boniswa must’ve been extremely challenging… yet you did it flawlessly.
“How you go so hard in everything you do is beyond admirable. You’re so dedicated and focused! I learned so much from you. Enkosi. For being my all on and off set. I’m so glad you were honored by the very same people you did it all for. You deserve the love and appreciation. Good luck. I love you deep, always
