LUSH AKA LUNGISILE MDUNYELWA
(COMPOSER, SONGWRITER, RAPPER, PRODUCER AND VOCALIST)
Lungisile Lush Mdunyelwa comes from a family yabantu abamhlophe (Traditional Healers), were dreams are interpreted through one’s vision. Growing up I was exposed to a lot of traditional & ritual ceremonies. As we all know the nature of the ceremonies; a constant sound of a pounding Traditional African drum, lots of dancing & singing in jubilation.
This is where my core inspiration as an artist lies as my music tends to encourage culture preservation, love and positive morale Ubuntu Bethu! This is evidently portrayed in my compositions, lyrically and beat wise.
I define my sound as a Dreamers paradise were there are no limitations (Don’t want to box myself as an artist) as my compositions just come through dreams, cultural influences and everyday peoples triumphs/struggle, love and self identification.
I have a couple of achievements in my music career; to mention a few; I was one of the top 5 artists in a national Nik-Naks search for south African best Rapper competition in 2006 hosted by Selimathunzi (SABC 1) and also was one of the top 10 artists in the Metro FM competition in selecting local performers at the last Metro FM Awards held in P.E 2006.
In 2010 I was profiled by SABC 1 SES’KHONA a five minute interview with my designer/Adviser Siviwe Ntsikelelo Ntleki of Revamped Cuts Designer wear, featured on many local releases with Iintloko Zeenyoka, Manskap, Capital Effect, perfomed in many festivals such as Isongololo arts festival, Mdantsane and East London annual Carnival, interview on Umhlobo Wenene by KC afternoon drive show as I represented Eastern Cape in JHB (Melrose Arch) through the Nicknaks search for best rapper competition.
In 2011 I was featured on the Eastern Cape issue by Hype Magazine, track number 15 on the CD produced by myself for my crew Capital Effect.
I am the face of MDANTSANE NATIVE clothing and Revamped Cuts Designer wear.
These have been humbling achievements for me and have allowed me to grow in my career as a composer, vocalist, and producer. Currently I am producing and selling beats to local artists while writing songs for most of them.
As a vocalist i can deliver a track on point either rapping or on mellow serenades.
I AM A DREAMER AND THE WORLD WILL ONE DAY SEE THROUGH MY EYES (HOPIN THEY RELATE). I GOT STORIES TO TELL AND LOVE TO SHARE.
