First Listen! Sipho Ngubane feat. Holi M – Agape Love (Casanova & Khayelihle Raw Soul Mix) (Soulful Sentiments Records)
Noise has never been synonymous with talent. Besides, just a bit of research brings us to countless blasts from the past that unfortunately failed to make it. Mind you, this is just how history has been working since day #1. Probably because the ones responsible for these (the blasts) obviously preferred remaining themselves at the time. As opposed to follow (fall into) the trends. This being most likely the case when thinkin’ of South African producer Sipho Ngubane.
Therefore, no wonder why nor how he managed to deliver a timeless piece of music by the likes of ‘Agape Love’. Meanwhile teamin’ up with the sultry Holi Moloi to deliver a message of hope in this world in desperate need of markers. Comin’ up in a smooth tip enlightened by lush key arrangements. This adding much to its value and, in the meantime, the intrinsic beauty of its atmosphere.
‘Agape’ (from the Greek ἀγάπη – agápē) bringing us to the notion of Love as revealed in the Bible, seen as spiritual and selfless, and a model for humanity…
‘Agape Love’… Just what it says! With a special one to Casanova & Khayelihle for their remixing work.

Hailing from Mandeni in the North Coast of Kwazulu Natal, Sipho Ngubane most likely honed his skills while teaching himself the use of production software.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as Black Coffee, Rocco and Atjazz, Sipho teamed up with a bunch of friends with whom he formed Room 806, eventually contributing to the release of their first EP ever – ‘Darkness’ – on French label Atal Music, by the end of 2011.
From then on, he would come to work on his own, delivering his debut-single – ‘You Got Me Feeling’ feat. Smoker Melody – 2 years later on the same label. Since then, he has collaborated with varous artists. From Ras Vadah (‘Forgotten Dream’, ‘Dream’). To Darian Crouse (I’m Yours Only’, ‘His Voice’). Not to mention Holi M (‘Agape Love’) among others.
In addition to this, Sipho has also produced jingles for radio stations and traditional music in his native country.
