In 2014, Tshego appeared on Cassper Nyovest’s Platinum selling album ‘Tsholofelo’ on the track ‘Cold Hearted’ which, despite not being a single, is a fan favourite. Furthermore, Tshego and Cassper’s relationship continued which lead to Tshego signing with Family Tree in 2015. Tshego also feature’s on Cassper’s Platinum certified sophomore album, ‘Refiloe’, appearing on the song ‘A Lot To Live For’, whilst also receiving writing credits on the album for the song ‘Upper’. Tshego is currently pushing his new single “Hennessy” featuring label mates, Gemini Major and Cassper Nyovest which has charted and has been on heavy rotation on numerous radio stations including 5 FM, Y FM and Motsweding FM.


Benn Gilbert Kamoto, better known as Gemini Major, is a Malawian born Afro–pop singer and record producer. Born in June 1990, Gemini Major finished his high school in 2007 and later graduated in IT in 2009. In the same year, he moved to Durban, South Africa to pursue his dream as an artist and record producer. Gemini Major has produced for a number of artists in a variety of genres ranging from R&B, Hip-Hop, House, Dancehall, Pop and Gospel. His portfolio includes production used in TV Shows such as Gold Diggers Season 3, Forever Young and Mo Love.  


Gemini Major who is inspired by artists such as Wizkid, Burna Boy, Bob Marley and I-Octane, describes his music as ‘a celebration of music, love and life in recognition for both its pain and pleasures on a personal level as well as socially. After a chance meeting with Cassper Nyovest and his team at a video shoot for a song that Gemini Major had produced, he joined the Family Tree team, and he is currently working on his debut project.
