Born in Alexandra Township 30 something years ago, Mathabatha Jobo always had a dream of performing for his people. Having been in the creative industry for ten years as freelance body painter working with artists like Somizi Mhlongo and Iko Mash on various projects, Mathabatha knew that he was made for the stage. This dream started way back in College where he was involved in the arts and drama.

His debut album, tells a story of where he always wanted to be. In this album he worked with producer Ngwadas, DJ/producer Rewind of Chameleon Studio.
