Black Motion is the Gold Selling duo, 2015 SAMA Best Dance album and Feather Award winner hailing from Soshanguve, North of Pretoria and started producing music in 2009. Both Thabo Mabogwane (31) and Bongani Mohosana (30) had been dancers in their early careers and were inspired to create music of their own, music they could dance to.

This led to a series of singles produced for DJ compilations before they could release their first successful 2010 song, Banane Mavoko which featured Richard Rakgwale aka Jah Rich. The song would later receive a Metro FM and Channel O award nominations, and also winning a Mungana Lonene FM music award for best dance song.

To date, the duo has released three studio albums – with their 2014 Fortune Teller album reaching gold status in just one month – and winning a 2015 SAMA for Best Dance album. On stage the duo makes use of DJ decks (Bongani) and a complete set of African and Latin drums and percussions (Thabo). The energy they bring on stage is livened by their dance routines they incorporate into their performances. Off stage Black Motion are style and fashion enthusiast who have the same synergy with their look as they do with their performances and recordings.
