“AmaSixteen is a celebratory song, just to say thank you to the streets and my newest business partners-Kasi Swagg, who have taken it upon themselves to dress me. I will be the brand’s Zimbabwean ambassador and help them get more customers here,” said an excited Thabbz.
Tshuma said they are excited with the new partnership with Thabbz and his recent works of art.
“Kasi Swagg is all about celebrating the kasi/ghetto lifestyle through fashion. Thabbz comes from the ghetto (Lobengula), so we saw it fit to endorse him as a face of Kasi Swagg in Zimbabwe,” he said.
Thabbz was nominated best newcomer and for best music video for Hey Wena at the Zim hip-hop awards 2015.
He will share the stage with K.O next month when the South African comes to Bulawayo.
