Although his rapping skills are what he has come to be known for, Sipho actually began as a producer and after a chance encounter with Alec Lomami and North Carolina based rapper Well$, he contributed as a producer to the Lomami-founded Immaculate Taste record label and landed production placements for international acts such as Deniro Farrar, King Mez, and Well$.
Sipho is slated to release a new album in the second half of 2017, titled Kintsugi.
