Bambelela was born out of a collaboration between Yxng Prodigy and Lelodoll. This was nurtured through the popular #zimtotheworld, a platform where Zimbabweans from around the world network, share ideas/talents and business with one another.
The African music scene is evolving, and new songs are coming into the forefront, Amapiano is one of them. Amapiano is a genre coming out of South African influenced by the dance and party culture.

With a flair for fusing Afro beats with a touch of his own unique style, Yxng Prodigy is a fast-rising star that shows his creative genius and allows his versatility and distinctive styles to take center stage. Originally from Nigeria & Zimbabwe, the South East London based artist speaks to his passion for music which started from an early age.
“Music was always a passion of mine since I was in my mother’s womb, when I look back at my life, I realize music was always the inevitable purpose for me”
The rapper recorded his first song in 2018 with a group of friends to hone his skills before launching onto the scene as Yxng Prodigy. He went ahead to release his first official single La Madrina which garnered over 100k streams on Spotify with listeners from all over the world weeks after release. Taking influence from the legend Bob Marley, the talented rapper moved to collaborate with R&B/Soul artist Selena Jade for his ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ track.
Although he draws inspiration from a host of musicians from different eras and genres; his main inspiration is Bob Marley mainly because his music had a meaning/purpose and helped to bring people together.
