A talented music producer and composer, Khodani Netshisaulu, known by his stage name of Netkho, is on a journey to establish himself in music circles around the country.
This graduate of the Soul Candi Institute of Music has mastered the skills needed to produce music that will appeal to listeners. “I had studied digital music composition and production,” he said. “I released my debut extended play (EP), entitled The Quest, early this year. It has songs like The Quest (ft Gundo Gee), Eyes With Love (ft Sthombe Gumede), Redemption, My Day, Ri khou Swika (ft Khathu) and Mpama/Zwoluga (ft Lwei Netshivahale).”
He stated that the project was not something that happened overnight and took its title from the hard work and quality time that had gone into its production. “We started working on Eyes with love and Ri khou swika around 2011 and Mpama/Zwoluga was recorded somewhere around 2017,” he said.
Netkho's love of music started at an early age when he was taught to play the basics on the piano, so he could play at church in around 2003. Up to this day, he still serves at church in the worshiping team department, playing musical instruments such as keyboard, bass guitar and drums. “Playing these main instruments all the time in church and mastering the basics of music instruments makes it much easier for me to excel in music production,” he added.
This resident of Mauluma village in the Nzhelele area said that he was looking forward to touring the country and making his music known to many people. “I already have people who love my music in many parts of the country, but I feel that I need to reach more people and also get my music to them in person sometimes,” he said.
“I released my first single in 2017 and because it was well received, I felt encouraged to work on new material,” he said.
His EP is available directly from him and also on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify, Amazon, and Deezer.
Netkho is available on Facebook and can be reached on 0765747795.
