Sihle Sithole, commonly known as Blxckie, is a South African rapper. In early 2021, he was named Apple Music’s Up Next artist.

Blxckie is originally from Durban, South Africa where he was born and raised, he often visited Johannesburg. In 2020, he found himself “stuck” in Johannesburg when the country went on a 21-day lockdown, but later said it was a “blessing”.

In an interview with Jade Kelly, he commented that he felt there was a disconnect between South African artists and their fans, saying “it’s almost like when an artist blows up or gets a little bit of fame that goes straight to their head. But what they forget is that the fans will always be the thing that stands between you and greatness. As much as they love the music, we need them to keep listening if we want to stick around, and that’s what I’m all about.”

Blxckie has collaborated with South African artists such as Nasty C, Yanga Chief, DJ Maphorisa and K.O, as well as the Nigerian-born CKay. That same year, he won Freshman of the year at the South African Hip Hop Awards 2021. His album B4Now was nominated for album of the year and his single “Ye x4” was nominated for song of the year and best collaboration at the South African Hip Hop Awards 2021. In 2021 he was selected at the top spot on MTV Base: SA’s Hottest MCs.
