Bio

Simba Bako was born 18 September 1981 in Buluwayo, Zimbabwe. At the tender age of 9, this
talented young man was performing for friends and family. Music was always an important part of
his life and he had a burning desire to leave his mark in this challenging industry.
In 2000 he moved from Zimbabwe to South Africa and started his undergraduate degree at the
University of Natal, it was during these years that his love for hip hop was rekindled. He
completed his degree and then moved to Johannesburg for his postgraduate qualification, it was
at this juncture that he met Wayne Berger and Mic Mann and the dream of Koldproduk was born.
Armed with a common goal of producing international quality music for the South African market
these idealistic individuals set out to conquer an industry that they had no experience in, they
were the underdogs. The name Koldproduk thus perfectly encompassed their foundation, and
would help to keep them grounded when they steadily built on their successes. The first building
block was the release of their record breaking debut album ‘All Under Heaven’. The album took
two years to produce and when it was finally released in 2007 caused a stir in the local hip hop
industry. The group of mavericks continued to amaze the industry by daring to do things
differently and produced their debut music video ‘Hush’ before the album hit the local market. The
music video was an instant success and was recognised both nationally and abroad.
Since its inception the group has undergone some changes, most notably the addition of two
talented artists, T*Spark and DJ Soosh. The dynamic trio offer a hip hop experience that is fueled
by a genuine belief in bringing about a positive change in those around them.
With a passion for music and love for the craft of DJ’ing, DJ Soosh started DJ’ing in 1997.He is
heavily involved in the art of turntablism (using the turntable as a musical instrument) and this
makes him more than just a DJ who plays music but also a musician in his own right. Not genre
specific in his approach to DJ’ing, he is influenced by many styles of music such as hip-hop,
funk, R&B, Neo Soul, Motown as well as Drum n bass. With over 10 years of experience
perfecting his skills, DJ Soosh has undeniably earned massive respect amongst those who have
seen him perform as well as those he has worked with.
