Blackdiamond is made up of Bulawayo born brothers, Steve “King Pro" Manjelo and Shane “Sugar Shane Wabantwana” Manjelo.
The duo first came onto the scene in 2007. Their first album, Supernova, gained critical acclaim and set a new standard for Zimbabwean Hip-hop.
Nominated for the music artist and music video of the year at the Zimbabwe Achievers Awards in May, Blackdiamond recently branched out into House/Gqom music.
They released single, Lahlu'mlenze, last year, which has received rave reviews. Their latest single Vosho is now out and has created a massive buzz and is already becoming a huge summer hit. All their latest music is from their second album Gqom Life which has received positive reviews, both in Zimbabwe and the UK.
Blackdiamond have performed at a series of big events, including the Come Up Season (CUSP) concert at the O2 Arena in Islington and recently with popular South African duo Destruction Boyz on their UK and Ireland tour.
