J. Bobs Live: uBhoboza noBooBoo in Newtown

Haters of Mumble Rap and loathers of Slam Culture are in for a treat during a scathing look at current mainstream doctrine and the workings of its larger machine. In a robust observation of the time we live in Kiri Pink Nob and SERG, in association with the Market Theatre Laboratory, present “J. Bobs Live: uBhoboza noBooBoo” written & performed by J. Bobs Tshabalala with musical accompaniment by Simphiwe Bonongo.

This version of J.Bobs Live is a Sketch Show double bill of Boom Bap vs. Swag Rap (a solo Hip Hop Musical) and Tower Of TEWOP (a solo Poetry Showcase). These works, and the hilarious characters are back after their long-awaited return to the stage rapping, singing, reading, reciting and embracing all things Wack, in the dopest way possible!

It is a poignant feast of urban music and contemporary verse, in the broader South African context. Fans of Rap Hits and lovers of Spoken Word are encouraged to witness this timeless blend of genre augmentation.

Jefferson Tshabalala and Simphiwe Bonongo takes to the stage under the direction of the theatre duo Billy Langa & Mahlatsi Mokgonyana. Jefferson Tshabalala known to many as J.Bobs is the founder of Kiri Pink Nob.He is man of many monikers all sharing their pseudonyms in the J.B catalogue: J.Bhoboza! J.BooBoo! J.Bambaklat! J.Bozza! J.Bawo! and of course, appearing as ‘himself’, J.Bobs!

He is a writer, director, and a performer with a rich archive of works that spans multiple genres and varied disciplines. Only magic is promised! This is bound to be a treat for all lovers of performance.

In various projects, different permutations of J. Bobs emerge. Some are familiar with the Alternative Theatre Maker, in Tshabalala. Others know Bobs as the Maverick Playwright. There are people who engage with Jefferson as the Dynamic Game Show Practitioner. What makes him unique from the larger thespian conversation however, is that he has keen interests and explorations in the ‘Hip Hop Theatre’ and ‘Poetry in Performance’ spheres.
