Listen to N’Veigh’s New EP ‘No Pineapples On My Pizza’

'No Pineapples On My Pizza' is outstanding.

One of South Africa's finest on the mic, Pretoria-based MC N'Veigh dropped a new EP today.

No Pineapples On My Pizza doesn't overstay its welcome; it only lasts for 20 minutes. And the MC and his collaborators never lose your attention.


N'Veigh is slowly coming out the "rapper's rapper" box. All songs on the 6-track project excel lyrically, but will entertain more than just the fan of bars. The MC chose musical beats and soulful vocal hooks to make the project listener-friendly.

No Pineapples On My Pizza is not about pineapples on pizza, though—the rapper flexes his lyrical skills on the battle-ready "Nomsa Nene Freestyle," raps about the game alongside Solo and Captain on "Villains," flirts with kwaito on "Souffle," shows off his mack game on "Falling" and self-introspects on "Way Too Gone."

On the latter, the MC vents about a range of issues from fatherhood to relationships that have gone sour. He raps about fellow Pretoria producer and DJ, Beat Oven.

He raps:

"So don't ask me about Beat Oven/ The brotherhood I had with that homie has been broken/ I'm sure he knows the reason why/ We haven't spoken, but the word is he got beef with I/ We can't be open about the matter/ It's better we forget and we move on/ Or lay that bitch to rest like a futon"

Production on No Pineapples On My Pizza is handled by Mayj-C, Bona V, Caesar Siseko and the legendary Beatmochini.

If you love your hip-hop with heartfelt lyrics that are delivered with flair and passion, No Pineapples On My Pizza will sure treat you well.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
