Before his introduction the world as Zulu Mkhathini, Mkhathini was part of the Durban hip-hop trio Dreamteam with group members Saso and Trey. Mkhathini’s previous stage name was ‘Dash’. In an interview with Sowetan Live in 2018, the rapper explained why he changed his name. In the interview he said: “So I have been slowly unveiling a bit of myself. I’m no longer that kid that was Dash. I’m no longer just a hip-hop figure. That name was kind of restricting me.
The rapper’s first debut single Uniform was released in 2018, and featured Afrotainment’s DJ Tira and was produced by DJ Maphorisa and DJ Catzico. Since then he released a single titled Nga 2 featuring Tribal and appeared on DJ Maphorisa and DJ Raybel’s smash hit iWalk Ye Phara featuring Moonchild Sanelly and K.O.
