Introducing SA Guru Group Duo The TeMple

Cousins Kenny Mlambo and Jacky Mopedi are The TeMple– the hip-hop outgrowth of the Guru Group creative company based in South Africa.


MC duo The TeMple are ring-leading a creative renaissance in South Africa. Their union of fashion and hip-hop in the raw, if all comes to fruition, brings to mind what Odd Future did for LA. Originally from Potchefstroom, Sandton-based South African photographers/designers Kenny Mlambo and Jacky Mopedi joined forces in launching creative company The Guru Group. Beginning with fashion and photography, the artistic entrepreneur cousins are adding beats and rhymes to the Guru umbrella. Initial offering "NTSANGO" is a gritty ode to herb. Follow-up single "Loxion Jazz" is a study on the path of music throughout the diaspora —a trumpet-backed exploration of South African jazz and township lifestyle. On the heels of two eclectic pillars, the pair will officially introduce themselves and the Guru name to South African hip-hop with their upcoming Enter The Temple mixtape. Watch the slickly shot video for "NTSANGO" below and stay caught up on the TeMple via facebook, twitter, and tumblr.
