Real recognize real: Zubz pays homage to Tehn Diamond

The South Africa based award winning rapper Zubz paid homage to local rapper Tehn Diamond calling him a "dope" artist. Writting via twitter, Zubs also said he listened to Tehn's Mixtape "Boys will be boys" for the whole hour

"Massive shout out to @TehnDiamond. In fact all I been listening to for the last hour is @TehnDiamond "Boys will be Boys" Very dope"

Following the compliment, Tehn Diamond responded and expressed his gratitude to Zubz.

"oh my days !! *humbled* And 4 those who somehow don't know . . . Zubz is a straight up legend of the Zim hip-hop game. So yes im happy dancing!"

Real name Ndabaningi Mabuye, Zubz is a Southern African rapper, born in Kasama, Zambia in July 1976, and relocating to Harare, Zimbabwe with his family, it was while growing up in Harare that Ndaba fell in love with Hip Hop and became an active contributor to the culture through school variety shows. His friends started to call him Zubz, as an interpolation of the shortened version of his name, Ndabs.

By the time Zubz finished his high school studies, he had already begun establishing himself as a leading MC in Harare and had shared the stage with local and international artists including American hip-hop crew from Queens, The Lost Boyz. A year after completing school, Zubz relocated again, graduating from Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa in 1999 before moving to Johannesburg. It was in there that he began his Hip Hop quest, entering and winning a noteworthy MC battle at Club 206, giving him a formidable rep as a freestyle rapper. Performing alongside Talib Kweli, dead prez, Black Thought and Jeru The Damaja at Black August in 2001, his affiliation with the Media Company Black Rage Productions became key to his professional career as later, Black Rage would establish the trailblazing Outrageous Records, whose first signing would be the MC Zubz.
