New Zealand based Phodiso’s new single ‘Talk Too Much’ is out now

Phodiso is a Botswana-born hip-hop artist doing big things in New Zealand and has just released his new single ‘Talk Too Much‘ from his upcoming EP, Act II. We’re really proud of this one and Phodiso is eager to engage with the music community back in his homeland so it’d be an honour to get a feature on your site! Or if there’s any other way we can work together please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me!

‘Talk Too Much’ is the first single from Act II, the second EP from Botswana-born, Auckland-based hip hop artist Phodiso. The energetic track is the emcee’s response to critics of his confidence and his defence of his right to do the most.

Following the release of teaser track ‘Usain‘ in March, the tune sets the tone for the artist’s next chapter. No shrinking, no holding back.

Born in Gaborone, Botswana, Phodiso began learning Tswana percussion styles through community song and dance ceremonies. His thought-provoking lyricism and experimental artistry scratches the itch of contemporary pop, while honoring his Southern Afrikan hip hop and Afro jazz influences.

Since settling in Aotearoa in 2010, the multi-disciplinary, multilingual artist has developed his creative approach and shared his gift of language and rhythm in a variety of ways, including as a vocalist and percussionist (New Telepathics, Pan Africana, Black Sunday), writing and performing poetry, and the release of his debut EP Act I. The lead single from that record, ‘Running Lines’ put Phodiso on the map, dominating student radio charts for weeks following its release.

It’s not often that an artist surfaces with a truly unique sound and story. Phodiso is here to present a new narrative.

Jikeleza (Down Bad), the infectious new banger by KX Legit, is here to turn your playlists upside down (just like your heart!). This genre-bending track fuses hot Afrobeats with smooth Hip-Hop grooves, featuring a driving bass, infectious percussion, and the mesmerizing sounds of the marimba.

But Jikeleza is more than just a vibe.  It’s a story we can all relate to.  You’ve chased your dreams, hustled hard, and finally achieved that “success” you always prayed for.  Except, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. The pressure, the negativity, the constant grind – it’s taking its toll.  And on top of it all, your ride-or-die is pulling away, exactly when you need them most.  Jikeleza is a desperate plea for love and support, a raw call to your significant other to be your rock during this storm.

The boys haven’t rested on their collaborative project from 2023. Instead, they are breathing new life into it with four new songs. This ensures that Veezo View & Ban-T’s ‘Off The Vapors 2’ Deluxe gets and gives them extra run. The new tracks, including ‘Scoota’, ‘Ey Wen’, and ‘NGSM’, sound fresh and had me listening back to other hits on the project, such as ‘Baracuda’, ‘HennyIceTea’, ‘Bounty’, and others. Stream the new project here.
