KNOW THE PRODUCER: Thuso Treihstar

Every Wednesday Mams Music Gallery bring out different producers to you, our reader and visitor, and this week we have Hip Hop producer Thuso Treihstar.





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 Treihstar.

REAL NAMES?

Thuso Sebaka Sethwape

WHAT AND WHO INFLUENCED YOU TO PRODUCE?

I grew up in a neighborhood that hip hop was the most listened to and during those days Lil Wayne along with Eminem were the ones who ran the game so I connected more with Weezy than Shady.

My brother (Malume Fifi) saw how good I used to sing Wayne’s joints and came up with the studio idea along with Toryce BlvckRose. Toryce provided a place for studio and I named it Gangster Money now known as BlvckRose Evo MuziQ.

I used to watch them record and ended up writing my own tracks so under the influence of Wayne’s joints and my brother I fell for hip hop and ended up featuring in one of their track in 2014 (Toryce & Malume Fifi was known as K Squared duo).

WHEN DID YOU START PRODUCING?

I started producing in 2015 with my Mixtape #HustlingMixtape before that Malume Fifi & Toryce BlvckRose were doing that (producing) for me.

BEST TWO SONGS YOU PRODUCED AND WHY?

  • Hustling Remake feat BahdGuy: It was my way of telling those curious people asking ‘montshegare its either o sgila or o busy, boshigo (at night) wa hlapa watswa entlek o busy kang’ and the lyrics are like ‘Everyday (I’m Hustling education and after school I hit the studio ) and every night ( I’m at gigs and studio) ni**u (the peeps) I’m Hustling.’
  • #She Got Voodoo feat Toryce BlvckRose: Was inspired by Nigerian movies so on the song it is about this beautiful girl from a poor background and has big dreams so she went to the witch doctor so that she can get any men she wants.
  • She used the Voodoo to lure them so she can use them to get to the top after she deserted them.
