Glen Duma Matsane, who is well known with his stage name (Brailo) was born in 1999-03-05. He was born and raised in South Africa, Mpumalanga in a Kasi called Game KaMphatseni.

Brailo does not categorize himself as a Hip-hop artist as he feels that limits him, but as a musician as he is a multi-talented young act in the music industry. He is a songwriter/ rapper/ vocalist and a music producer.

The inspiration to write music started at a very early age when he was still at primary school at the age of eleven.

“I fell in love with rap music when I first heard teargas on the radio, I would rap along to K.O (MrCashtime)’s verses. When he spits his lines I would be more inspired and get this burning desire inside me that one day I wish to be like him” he said.

Brailo was not aware as to how much he actually was talented both as a vocalist and a rapper until he started getting all this positive feedback from the public and spectators in every event where he went and performed his music.

He performed for the first time at the school he went to when he was still in grade 8. He was a total nobody at the time but he managed to gather some strength and when on to perform in front crowd he was not even sure would boo or support him, to his surprise the reception of both him and his music was overwhelming.

A few months later and after a couple of performances he had won the hearts of most if not all the students he went to school with. Few more months later he recorded a hit single titled “One Milllion” which gained him even more popularity, to an extent that everybody at the school now called him “Mr One Million”

“Getting exposure at school was I think a subline start as we all know school carries thousands of students so if you can get the support of at least half of them you have a guaranteed fan base for as long you make good music, as we all know that in this industry you are only as good as your last offering.” He adds

The streets were already raving about this young 15-year-old that is rapping wonders on stage. This raised eyebrows to other pit bulls in the local rap scene to pay attention to him and start inviting to most if not all of their events around Game and surroundings. As a result, he found himself performing in big events like Game Invasion, Miss Game, Senior General Birthday Celebration to mention but a few.

It is in these events where he got the privilege to share the stage with industry greats like Sjava, Saudi, Kelly Khumalo, Chomee and Zola 7 among others.

He went to be a guest in community radio stations and other national radio stations such as Ligwalagwala FM where he first went to Hip-Hop Kulture hosted by Mp’s King Of Hip Hop Fortune Ntekati and also went on to be interviewed on the stations biggest show Kusile Mzansi Breakfast where he was hosted by the humorous Dj Madumane

He also participated in a Hip Hop battle on Mpumalanga’s biggest commercial radio station Rise FM hosted by The Big Zill.

In 2017 he entered a competition hosted by Senior Tainment called Geleza Mreppa Music Competition where he became the first runner up.

He won the hearts of the judges there as well, but most importantly he also impressed the founder of both the competition and Senior Tainment Senior General who then called him after the competition and offered him mentorship and a publishing deal. He went on to feature him in and the winner of the competion Destro Makhiya in a single titled “Drama”

Brailo is still focused on his studies at the moment and has dreams of studying towards being a civil engineer.

“I am giving everyone in the industry right now a stern warning that it is only a matter of time until I complete my studies and take over the industry by storm…” He says.

Senior General


Senior General was born in June 11 in Mpumalanga Hazyview, South Africa. Mnisi was raised in a sub-township called Game in the outskirts of Mbombela formely known as Nelspruit. Game is a township previously known for its high crime rate, as well as its lack of infrastructure and opportunities. Growing up in the dusty streets of this neighborhood saw Mnisi want to make it big in life and make a difference in other people’s lives. As a kid he had always wanted to grow up and become an engineer.
Senior General then fell in love with writing as he was growing up. He started from writing love letters and poems in high school and went on to writing essays and short stories. He was once crowned the ‘best essay writer in high school’. He then advanced to writing songs and novels.
“I believe one can’t lie when they are writing, lying while writing is worse than lying under oath because here you are lying to yourself.” He explains.

Senior General was introduced into rap/hip-hop music by his late friend (HARRY ‘GUN FORCE’ NGOMANE) back in high school in 2001. Senior used to watch Gun force rap and wondered how he could memorize so many words at once. He had never been the type of person that would sell himself short hence that was the reason he then took the bold step of asking Gun Force to teach him how to rap. Inspired by international stars ‘TuPac Shakur’, ‘Nas’ and SA superstar ‘Zola’ he graduated with flying colors. It is during this time that him and his friends formed a rap group called Eyakho.

His affiliation under the rap-genre umbrella saw his grades drop decimal at school and his dream of becoming an engineer come into utmost perish. His love for rap music grew colossally. In here he found an opportunity to put his writing skills into good use and see his new dream of becoming a rapper into reality.
“Call me naïve but I refuse to conform to the common norms of having a nine to five job and working the whole month just so you can have enough money to be broke. God gave me a talent and I am going to enhance it and put it into full utilization.” He would say.

Senior recently started his own label titled Senior Tainmet. Where he intends to open opportunities for other young talented musicians that seek exposure and recognition. The idea is not to sell people empty dreams and promise them record deals but to assist where ever it is possible, be it in the form of…
