In keeping with the spirit of preserving our indigenous sound Sheer Publishing has embarked on a journey travelled by few in pursuit of traditional music song writers.
This has been part of Sheer Publishing’s vision for many years now. Traditional music has always been the backbone of South Africa’s rich heritage which is why Sheer Pushing has taken a conscious decision to invest most of its resources to help bring more light to this, mostly marginalized, sector. It is for this reason that Bongani Mathenjwa (Mr. B) and Asanda Jaca were tasked with this huge responsibility. Together they boast the invaluable experience in music publishing and general music business administration. They have penetrated the Maskandi industry with their love, passion and understanding of traditional music.
We are proud to have partnered with some veterans in the game like Shwi NoMtekhala, Dr. Buselaphi Gxowa (Buselaphi) and Busi Mhlongo to mention a few. In keeping with the times and trends Sheer has been almost everywhere to source new traditional music songwriters. It is an honour for us to present Nkosikhona Mpungose (KHUZANI), Mthandeni Manqele (IGCOKAMA ELISHA), Muzuvukile Khenyeza (JAIVA ZIMNIKE), Mlamuli Sibisi (MDLALISI), Cuphokwakhe Langa (SHILISI) as well as Nelisani & Sakhiseni Mseleku (ABAFANA BAKA MGQUMENI) as some of the new signings we have just secured.
We endeavour to ensure that all our new clients benefit from our comprehensive publishing administrative services and a massive network of industry service providers that we have built and maintained for more than 2 decades. – Bongani Mathenjwa (Mr.B)
