What you need to know:

  • Ntokozo Mdluli aka KO is a South African rapper signed to Cashtime Life, a company he co-founded. Previously a member of the famous South African rap group, Teargas, he went solo last year.
  • His album, Skhanda Republic, won the Record of the Year, at the 21st South Africa Music Awards while his wildly successful single, Caracara, recently hit 2 million views on Youtube.

I’m anxious about our scheduled interview. Entertainment publicist Anyiko Owoko who is   managing the rapper’s publicity matters, informs me that KO is asleep in the car.
