“I’m Not Broke” – Speedy Comes Back!


A lot of South Africans have been wondering where Speedy could have been to, after years of having no idea of his whereabout.

Well, worry no more, because Speedy is finally back to the spotlight.

Speedy is a popular member of the South African musical group, Bongo Maffin which shot him to fame in 1997.

His band mates were Stoan Seate, Thandiswa Mazwai and Jahseed. Bongo Maffin’s songs played a significant role in the Kwaito Revolution that enthralled South Africa from the early 90s to the year 2000s.

Speedy later left the famous group to start a solo career. Not only is he a musician, but also a talented actor.

He enthralled his fans with his performances as Deep in the first three seasons of the drama series Gaz’lam, from 2002-2005.

Speedy later made several guest appearances on the sitcom SOS in 2001, and played himself on the defunct youth soapie Backstage, in 2006.

He can also be recognised by many on the 2011 hit song with Professor, titled ‘Lento’ and ‘Baphi’ some years ago.

Since then, many of us have been wondering where Speedy and his signature white towel are.

He recently engaged in a chat with Daily Sun and revealed the exciting news that he will be releasing an album.

“I have my own album which I worked on with Ishmael, Nhlanhla Nciza and others. It’s a gift to fans” He revealed to Daily Sun.

According to him, it is his aim to bring Bongo Maffin back together, and he is working towards that.

A lot of people assumed that the singer has gone broke because he is down and out, however, he isn’t. If anything, he has been living his best life between South Africa and America.

“People think I’m back because I’m broke. I’m not broke,” He cleared.

During his recent interview with Daily Sun, he spoke about the hardships he has faced in the industry and the challenges that came with it.

“Like everyone else, I’ve had my fair share of struggles, which I’ve overcome and learnt from.

Fame is a monster. People perceive you differently. I don’t want to live like that. I’ve messed up in the past. I’m working at fixing that,” He added.
