Nathi also happened to know Mr. Funky Masike Mohapi (former member of Harare), who taught him to play guitar, and his son Tshepo Mohapi, who brought the band where it is today. In 2007 Oscar was introduced to band. Along with Oscar, they became Ree-Burth, which was the name suggested by Sipho “hot stick” Mabuse. They started performing in February 2007 at a place called sister sister’s.
It was their first performance, and they ended up performing there more often because they found that their music was appreciated, and loved by the crowd. Other performances were at Shivava in new town, Horror Cafe and Cool Running’s in town. Then also in Soweto at ipelegeng, which was one of the best shows they had performed. They further went on to perform at Protea Glen and Kliptown “Walter Sisulu square” for the memorial of Robert Sobukwe. Other shows include Oppikoppi 2009, Lido Fest, and Thornfest the camp 2010. In 2010 Ree-Burth were honored to join the Monster Energy family. The band’s dream is to see themselves performing with some of the industry’s legends. Read more on Last.fm.
