Senzo Mfundo Vilakazi (born 11 August 1988), better known by his stage name Kwesta, is a South African born rapper and songwriter. He was born in Katlehong, Ekurhuleni, Gauteng. He is currently signed to Urbantainment.

His third studio album DaKAR II was released on February 26, 2016. He also went to Phumulani Secondary School for 3 years and to finish his last two years at Alafhang High School

EARLY CAREER

Senzo had taken an interest in poetry during his high school years and received positive feedback and encouragement from fellow students and teachers.

In 2003, Senzo, then known as Quest, and some friends of his formed a group called “Ghetto Fellaz”, which shortly after, became known as “The Juvenylz” with an additional member. His crew hoped to be discovered and signed, but it did not happen. Senzo dropped out of high school at the age of 16 to pursue his music career full-time. He started recording his first demo in his home studio. This demo caught the attention of Africa’s Most Southern Record Company (AMS), which eventually allowed him to use their recording facilities to allow for young Kwesta to harness his rapping skills.

In 2007 he released his first radio single titled “Shap Fede” and followed up with a Mixtape with hip hop DJ C-live.

Kwesta, still a teenager, convinced his mother to give him taxi fare necessary to get to Buttabing Entertainment’s offices. This meeting resulted in Kwesta being added to Buttabing Entertainment’s roster, co-owned by founding members Shugasmakx and Slikour.
