Bongo Maffin to reunite

Stoan Seate confirmed that he and other members of iconic kwaito group Bongo Maffin are in discussions over a reunion, the details of which will be communicated as soon as they are available.

The news of the group’s reunion surfaced this morning when the Kalawa Jazmee production boss revealed to TshisaLIVE that after 12 years of being out of the spotlight, the multi-award-winning group was in talks to make a return to music.

Seate said they recently reunited when they were doing a Castle Lager advertisement, which went very well. “I think all of us have maintained relevance and equity in our chosen directions away from the group, while still maintaining personal contact. If we are honest with our art, it will always feel like we never left and the music (old and new) will resonate with fans,” he told DESTINY Connect.

Oskido said that he could not confirm anything, but the group was in talks to make it happen and they seem to be at an advanced stage. “Everyone really enjoyed working together, so now it’s a case of just putting all the pieces together,” he told TshisaLIVE.

Apparently, a feud between Speedy and Seate prompted the group to split. At the time, Speedy went on to leave both the group and Kalawa Jazmee.

Oskido reportedly said there was no bad blood between members of the group. “They are all friends and they like hanging out with each other. The chemistry is still there and they know this is something that fans have wanted for a long time,” he said.
