The first time we all heard about iconic Black Motion splitting was during the reign of Musa Khawula on Twitter and his expose of South African celebrities. The speculation was fuelled by Thabo Smol who was performing solo as Black Motion. Despite reports that the duo had split, Black Motion issued a statement denying the…
“Spirit Motion would like to state in a record that Black Motion members Thabo Mabongwa aka Smol and Bongani Mahosana aka Murdahbongz have not parted ways.
Black Motion still exists and has plans for more years to come.”
To squash the allegations, the duo would then release their most recent (and possibly last) album under their original formation titled Talking to the Drums.
However, in recent days, fans have been baffled to see Thabo Smol and new member Kabelo Koma, who in the titles is confirmed as the “Member of Black Motion
Not much is known about Kabelo Koma aka Problem Child or what he will bring to the group.
Problem Child is from Seshego and is said to have fallen in love with house music because of his older brother, who at 14 started his professional DJing career as a self-taught DJ playing at local outlets, parties and nightspots in Polokwane, hence his stage name.
In 2010, he released his first EP titled Mr Ten83 hence his Instagram profile.
Problem Child and Thabo Smol have a longstanding friendship outside of their new partnership as seen through posts of them together before Problem Child’s confirmation as a Black Motion member.
