As humans, we naturally learn our mother tongue without any formal instruction. We listen to our parents, siblings, and other family members speak and gradually develop our language skills. Similarly, UYIHLO, a talented rapper, has a unique pen game and work ethic that sets him apart from others. His recent EP, “Severance Package,” has a beautiful rollout that is worth watching.
UYIHLO’s music is so captivating that it has the power to transport hip-hop audiences to other worlds and introduce them to different perspectives. His storytelling in music has the potential to be passed down to the next generation. The EP opens with “DEVINE” and “BAD HABITS,” which set a different mood. “ABERFELDY AVENUE” is a highly recommended song for the masses, and “INGENELELO” stands out for its perfectly engineered beat. “ITHONGO,” which resonates with most South African youth, is also a favorite. Overall, I believe that South African music lovers will appreciate this 7-song EP.
