Band/artist history
Born Diau Madisha in Zebediela a village in Limpopo, South Africa. Spaceman found hip hop when he moved to Protea North (a section of Soweto in) JoBurg South Africa. It took only 2years in high school for Spaceman to be the hip hop center. At this stage he was the leader of the only hip hop group at school, handling their production and distrubution around the school. He took the 2 artists (Cross and KG-fire) he believed in and went to groom them under his wing. The popularity of his music and leadership qualities led to him being voted the head student by both students and teachers. In 2003 Spaceman studied sound engineering and saw his first musical success by having his first track became track of the week on Y fms Harambe Show. The track called Revolution caused a ster with words like theres no local hip hop jus hip hop. In 2004 he realesed his first mixtape which was released and distributed independantly. The mixtape featured Pro-Kid, Spaceman, Syntax and of coarse Cross and KG-fire. He collected all his Artists, planned and fiananced a tour and hit the road to market the mixtape. The tour covered Umthata, East london, PE, Grahamstown, Johannesburg, Durban, Limpopo and Bloemfontein. From community radio stations to malls,no stone was left unturned. Although largely guerilla style marketing was employed to market the mixtape, a modest 5196 copies were sold. In 2005 saw Spaceman studied Small business management and promoted the Spaceman brand. He participated in a Metro fm compilation (the Exodus hosted by T-Bo Touch) and expanded to tv by playing a rapper in a comedy show Kenny Makhenzo on SABC 1. 2006 Rather saw Spacemans label rebirth Munna Music and futher study in Marketing and Management for the Music Industry at Wits University.
