KNOW THE PRODUCER: GongMan

Every Wednesday Mams Music Gallery bring out different producers to you, our reader and visitor, and this week we have Mamelodi based GongMan.






There is no dance without music. Music is the only thing that “when it hits you, you feel no pain,” says Lady Zamar.

Without a producer there is no music and without music there is very little soul healer in a human spirit.

This week we bring you Gong Man.
