The trio which consists of Joao Da Fonseca, a.k.a. J’Something who is the lead singer/songwriter, Sipho Mphahlaza a.k.a Dr Duda as DJ/producer, and Moshe Kgasoane, a.k.a Mo-T as trumpeter, is deeply rooted in making music that carries positive vibes and uplifting energy.

Afroforce1 has been established to develop and work with local talent with the view to break them into Central Europe and the rest of the World.
