Meet one of the Limpopo multi-talented stars who wears many hats.
Lucky Mashudu Munyembani, known professionally as StageBox Breathe, is a singer, songwriter, photographer and model.
Born 30 years ago, Munyembani from Musina has released three full albums namely Sterio, All My Promises and Long Walk to Stardom, as well as various singles in his 10 years in the music industry.
His music is a combination of rhythm and blues, pop, hip-hop and dancehall reggae. He is working on a new album titled Breathe under a new record label, One Love Records, to be released after lockdown.
On his coming album, he worked with well-known musicians like Mcdee Madhara, Slender Boy and Sparkles RSA.
Munyembane has performed in events which include ANC victory celebrations, Musina Annual Show, 2016 AfriDzonga Awards, 2018 SABC Phalaphala FM Birthday celebration and the 2019 Annual Musina Rocks Festival.
He says it takes hard work, perseverance and dedication to survive in the music and showbiz industry.
“It is not easy to succeed because of the stiff competition in this industry.
“However, if you set achievable goals, manage your time effectively and stay focused, you can reach greater heights,” he said.
These heights have included a nomination for the 2019 City Awards best newcomer and taking third runner-up in the 2017 Clicks Got Talent event.
Munyambane also has an impressive track record modelling. He was 2015 Mr Musina second prince and was in the top five of the 2019 Brighter Future SA.
Although his music receives airplay in the local community radio stations, Munyembane is worried that the so called “big radio stations” gives him limited or no airplay at all.
“This is the challenge which many local musicians are crying about. But I will not give up because my music is very good. I will keep on pushing until I get the desired airplay.
“I call upon other artists who are not afforded enough airplay not to give up because better things will come one day.”
The artist is also pushing his music and showbiz career through various social media platforms.
“I’m available on Instagram (StageBox Breathe), Facebook (StageBox Breathe), YouTube and e-mail (email@example.com)”.
