Mshoza’s Kortes Was Written By Nimrod Nkosi
As we remember the late Queen of Kwaito, Mshoza, who died yesterday, we continue to release information on the songstress life and musical journey.
Latest regarding the singers musical journey is, actor, TV presenter, and songwriter, Nimrod Nkosi discovered the talented late Kwaito Queen and wrote her hit song; Kortes.
Nimrod Nkosi discovered Mshoza on the 90s hit-show; Jam Alley which he was producing and presently alongside late actress and TV presenter; V-Mash.
Nimrod also discovered Mzambiya, who featured Mshoza on her hit song; Kortes which was a song that defined the Kwaito era of the late 90s. Nimrod Nkosi was Mshoza’s mentor and believed in her talent in what was a male-dominated kwaito industry.
Nkosi wrote the smash hit for Mshoza and applauded Mshoza for making the song her own. When Nkosi has interviewed about the song he had this to say:
“When I wrote Kortes for Mshoza I said to her, this is a love story and the only thing that will hook the chorus is to go with a small thing that this person enjoys about that other person. When you wear a heart, you drive me crazy, but if you want to add something to it, let’s go. So I allowed her to be who she was without putting her in a box.”
Mshoza who went on to make a name for herself in the industry, and continued to attract media attention with her lifestyle off stage, passed away yesterday after succumbing to diabetes at Hospital in East Rand. Although Nkosi has not yet commented publicly on Mshoza’s death, close sources say he’s devastated as he’s also still grieving the death of V-mash who he worked with on Jam Alley.
Nkosi currently plays the character of Walter Nkaba who is a politician and step-father to Refilwe Nkaba played by an award-winning actress; Joane Reyneke. His character is a politician with questionable standards and often gets into dodgy dealings with Jack Mabaso played by Vusi Kunene.
Nkosi who joined Generations The Legacy in 2014, has also acted in Mzansi Magic’s The Queen and Isibaya.
