  • Childhood friends Mthoko Mkhathini and Lusaso Ngcobo were initially part of a hip hop dance crew. In 2011, they formed a trio with Saso's older brother's friend, Trevor Sineke. Their first gig as a trio was in a popular spot in Durban, called De La Sol. To their surprise, the crowd responded favorably. Their debut major single "Tsekede" from their mixtape The Blow Up, was released in 2013. Their mixtape was well received, gaining over 12,000 downloads and distribution of 500 physical copies in March 2013. Later that year, they enlisted major South African hip hop recording artist, AKA, and fellow Durban-based music group Big Nuz for the remix of "Tsekede", which eventually became a summer anthem for that year. Other popular singles from their mixtape include "Ask Enibhadi" and "Izass". Dreamteam earned their first nomination at the South African Hip Hop Awards in 2013 for Freshmen of the Year. They were featured on DJ Fisherman's debut single "Call Out", along with frequent collaborator NaakMusiQ, which was released on August 14, 2014. MTV Base VJ and rapper Nomuzi Mabena aka Moozlie, from the Cashtime Life hip hop collective, twerks in the "Izass" music video. Dreamteam's music video for their early 2015 single "Dubane", which is a tribute to their hometown Durban, has been compared to the music video American rapper Ludacris recorded in the same city in 2005. DreamTeam released their single "What's Your Name" which contains features from fellow South African singers Donald and NaakMusiQ, in March 2015. The song would later serve as the debut single from their first major album Dreams Never Die. Their debut studio album, Dreams Never Die, was released on July 31, 2015. Among the list of guest features for the album are fellow South African music acts AKA, Donald, NaakMusiQ, Big Nuz, and Nigerian rapper Ice Prince. (en)
