Mzekezeke is back & fans are still convinced he's DJ Sbu in disguise
There was a time when musician Mzekezeke was filling up venues, dominating charts and the search for the man behind the black mask was the nation's favourite past time.
Well the muso is officially back in the game and fans are still convinced the man behind the mask is DJ Sbu living a second life on stage.
Sbu announced the return of the faceless kwaito star late on Sunday evening and posted a video of him performing. He also revealed that Mzekezeke already has 21 shows booked for the festive season.

#BREAKINGNEWS Looks like @mzekezekets is back 🤣. KWAITO music might just be back! 21 shows booked for this festive. No hit song. No new music. No tv show. Just the love. It's amazing the power of a brand built 17 years ago still resonates with South Africans to this day NAMANJE. I saw him rock a sold out @joburgtheatre last week with a 20 year old DJ @lindash_97 Last night I saw him shutdown a 50k @royalheritagefestival crowd in Venda as a surprise ACT. The love was real 🙏🏿🇿🇦 #AYEYESUMMER2018!!! #RIPBrownDash
Sbu claimed Mzekezeke was selling out shows of over 50,000 people despite having no TV show, no new music and no hit songs.
Fans were quick to congratulate Sbu on his "return" even though he repeatedly denied it was him.
But even pictures of Mzekezeke and Sbu sharing a stage couldn't convince Twitter. The streets weren't bothered and called for police affidavits, as well as, a press conference to prove Sbu wasn't Mzekezeke.
