Limpopo has in the past few years been producing several hitmakers such as Sho Madjozi, and King Monada, creating unique sounds heard all over.

He said: “There is something special about the music we are doing in Limpopo.” Jerusalema has reached over 50 million views on Youtube and has charted in many dance charts internationally.
