Born Mwila Musonda on the 27th of April, SlapDee first got in the game during his high school years. Battling school mates and winning recognition, he soon realized that he could make hip-hop a viable career. His career began to get moving in 2006 when he worked on a song called ‘Asembe Isebenza’ and was identified by promoter Sync as a rising star. His debut album bearing the same name was a commercial disappointment but, it earned SlapDee some decent radio spins and generated a buzz in the Hip-Hop underground. His follow-up effort entitled ‘So-Che’ catapulted the young rhyme-smith to national stardom. Featuring hits like ‘Solola’ and ‘Takwaba’… So-Che confirmed what well-informed critics had suspected: the next big thing had arrived!

Moving from strength-to-strength in 2009, Slapdee released his third studio project entitled “Black na White” the album included hit songs such as “Gold-digger”, “Fo’Shizy” and “Chishinka”. Slap is currently in studio recording his fourth album, his second under his very own record label “X. Y. Z Entertainment”. This project will be uniquely different as Slap will use it to showcase his own beat-making skills. Slapdee strengths lie in a unique ear for music, an intuitive understanding of the listening public’s tastes and his strong song-writing skills. With the ability to compose a sung hook, a strong 16 bar rap verse or a melodic bridge, this triple threat of beat-making, song-writing and rapping certainly make Slap-Dee a star for many years to come in African music.
