Jovislash born Thuso Desmond is one of the artists who stood out from Back to the City 2013 as he had the crowed eating out of his hand and made them sing along to the chorus while spitting punch lines from out of this world. After his performance I was eager to find out more about him.
Jovislash is not new to this industry and real hip-hop followers would know him from a crew called Obs’assion which released a debut mixtape titled “The Prologue”. He later released a solo mixtape “ Inkos’ Yama Punchparagraph”, where he worked with Flabba (Skwatta Kamp), TSM, Twigga and many other artists from Alexandra Township. Jovislash is not just lyrically gifted but also has a sound engineering back round , composes beats for various artists including the likes of Red Button.
His latest track “hip hop” features, Infidazle (Skwatta kamp), Mr Mo, Phatpro,and Rkamza were I feel and understand their love for hip hop and what it means to them.
Enjoy the track
