Mellow and Sleazy celebrate 56 million streams on Spotify

Dynamic duo Mellow and Sleazy keep on conquering the amapiano scene. Phemelo Sefanyetse and Olebogeng Kwanaite were born and bred in Soshanguve and Ga-Rankuwa, Tshwane respectively. Growing up, they faced crime, drugs, and violence head-on, and came out of the hood with platinum records instead of scars.

The duo snatched the golden mic from the universe at the start of the pandemic and spun it into a tale of musical glory that has kept them going until now. Their secret sauce? Collaborations that hit harder than their neighbourhood’s toughest streets. They’ve worked with the likes of DJ Maphorisa, Felo Le Tee, Focalistic, and Young Stunna who all contributed to their timeless beats, unleashing hits like Nkao Tempela, Salary Salary, and Chipi ke Chipi.

Taking a victory lap on social media, Mellow and Sleazy popped the virtual champagne for reaching 56 million streams and remaining in 4.8 million eardrums on Spotify. Gratitude was the theme, as they thanked their fans for riding the wave with them for all this time.

And how did this dynamic duo come together? Well, according to Sleazy, it’s a tale of music fate. “I met Mellow at tertiary two years ago. I have always been into music production and creating beats. Before amapiano, I used to produce trap songs and a bit of kasi hip-hop. One day I was hanging out with my friends and Mellow happened to be there because we both liked trap, we sort of clicked.”

Their love for music blossomed, and the decision to dive into the amapiano realm was a no-brainer. Armed with passion and a friend’s makeshift studio, they laid down the tracks that turned their shared dream into reality. The Amapiano duo went form the streets to streams, millions of streams.
