Kwasa kwasa group, Rocking Stars, one of the few groups in the genre that are still fighting for relevance in the ever changing pop culture  by still churning out music of its own.

The duo that consists of Palagabedi Mphoyakgosi and Thono Nkwate started out as a five-member group that had broken away from Charma Gal’s ensemble to pursue a musical career of their own. The group has since lost most of its members with only the current two still retaining the group’s credentials whereas two other members retraced their steps back to Charma Gal and the other one pursuing a solo career.

“For us to become Rocking Stars, we broke away from Charma Gal while our fifth member was Motlha of the mmamotse fame. After we formed the group, we released an album titled analogue to digital,” Mphoyakgosi said during an interview.
