We had a lot of fun with our guests today from Family First. The whole crew came to talk with us on the Morning Cruise about their music and future plans. The guys have known each other from a young age when they grew up playing soccer together in the street. Now each of them has their own role in their group called Family First.
Shayela Khalombo, otherwise known as Yung Addict, is the founder of the group and one of the lyricists. Also on the mic is Zwelakhe Sokanyile, also known as MK Rowdy. Zenande Landfirst Nkomana acts as the manager while Lerato Nkala produces for the group. And last but not least, all of the film and photography for Family First can be credited to Siya Nkala.
Their group name comes from their respect for the importance of family. With mixed support from their own families at home, our crew of guests consider themselves their own family. They support and push each other forward, which keeps them inspired to keep writing and producing their music.
All from Summer Greens, Family First has already produced a few tracks and have more on the way. Yung addict is dropping his new EP on 26 August. In the meantime, the group is planning an event for 7 October 2017 where they hope to book a parking lot for their venue.
