Nyico Loco is known for his unique hit making skills that produced some of the hits like Find Me An Angel featuring Macphly, Ten Tao, Poetic Justice, Ziyawa, Achaar Mazambane and Esdudleni Esilendeni.
He is an award winning producer having scooped Mamelodi Local Brands Awards for best Producer in 2017.
He is also a co-founding member of Team Ziyawa alongside DJ Sbu wako Tsakane and Zotha but has since left the group.
Nyico has now formed a new age group called Locomotive La Familia that produce different kind of music genres including Bacardi, Amapiano and Broken House.
The group consists of Nyico Loco, Nyoni Deboi, Sfubanation and Sjukunapepe.
“I started the group after I discovered the style of fusing Amapiano, Bacardi, Broken Beats and Xitsonga disco in one genre which it’s called Urban Bacardi,” Nyico exclusively told Mams Music Gallery.
“The style is now all over South Africa and being played on many radio stations which many producers never believed in it, but I never let other people downgrade this new style which I call it Urban Bacardi.”
Locomotive La Familia recently released their latest song Monyise Mo Jolo which is an Urban Bacardi style of track.
