‘Runaweyi’ is the debut single from three piece South African band Johnny Cradle.
The Group consist of Tebogo J Mosane on drums and backing vocals, Lazola (Laz) Ndamase on turntables and sampler and Sakumzi (Sakie) Qumana on synthesizer and vocals.
With roots in Mdantsane and Mthatha in the Eastern Cape and Ga-rankuwa in Gauteng it’s no wonder these 80’s grown-ups have a diverse influence behind their township slang Xhosa/ English lyrics driven by heavy bass, afro pop, hip hop drum rhythms, DJ cuts reminiscent of golden era of hip hop and a bluesy rock electric guitars.
Add to that a visual creative flair that sees the trio creative directing their own photo shoots, videos and artwork for their debut self-titled album.
Their debut self-titled album Johnny Cradle will be released on the 21st July 2017.
Pre-order on iTunes, 16th June 2017.
