Masana ‘Cardo’ Mbhalati

PXY reviews - Cardo

Masana ‘Cardo’ Mbhalati, known to many by his stage name Cardo, was born in the small town of Tzaneen in Limpopo. Cardo is the last of two children and grew up in a very loving family home. Cardo’s musical talents were first realised by his pre-school teacher who noticed Cardo’s love for the stage. As a boy, Cardo was involved in all things musical from piano lessons, school concerts and even being a fully active member of his primary school choir for the majority of his primary school career.

Cardo’s love for Hip Hop began when he first heard his older brother, (who at the time was an aspiring rapper), rap for the first time. From that moment on, Cardo was hooked and went from following in his brothers footsteps, to paving his own musical path. Growing up in a small town taught Cardo the value of family, loyalty, honesty and friendship, which he portrays with excellence in his music. Cardo combines the art of true Hip Hop with modern sounds and a flow and presence that is undeniable. Cardo is a not only a force to be reckoned with, but a musically gifted individual who’s talents and drive prove to be above par and impossible to deny.
