With the fall of the apartheid-era in South Africa rose new opportunities for the before oppressed population. This gave space to kwaito, a celebrating music genre mainly cultivated by the black population. Sandy B, who was not more than 17 at the time, had a local hit in 1995 with his ep Amajovi Jovi. During the following decades he would move actively within the local music scene and touch a variety of genres including afro-pop, deep house, R’n’B and Soul.
In the mid 2010’s around 20 years since its release crate diggers and DJ’s across Europe and North America discovered Amajovi Jovi and started dropping tracks from the album. In late 2017 the album was reissued on Canadian label, Invisible City Editions giving a new lease of life to a forgotten classic and giving this once little known artist an international reputation.
In the light of this new breakthrough Sandy B released the album Qhum Qhaks in 2019 which followed up on the success of Amajovi Jovi. In that context he co-founded the record label Vumbuka Records alongside Simon Lundsgaard, the producer of Qhum Qhaks.
