Brought together by hip-hop creatives Lebohang More and Tebogo Mkhize, The Unexpected Guests bring forth an uplifting and alternative fusion of Zulu and English lyrics together with the raw Soweto raps produced by Juice the Giant on instrumentals and the drum machine. 

T.U.G.’s music is a hotpot of Kasi and Northern Burbs raps, sizzling over hardcore drum machine beats that tell stories from three different walks of life. The Unexpected Guests live performances showcase their music through a drummer and bass guitarist who play over heavy live samples and sounds, underlying lyrics written by two the MC’s in Vernac and English.
