Young Stunna is signed to Kabza De Small’s Piano Hub record label. Speaking to TshisaLive, he shared that a lot would’ve gone wrong if he didn’t listen to the amapiano giant.

“We’ve got that father and son relationship going on because he teaches us a lot.”
“He shows us everything. He makes us understand how everything is going to go and how you’re going to feel and when you go through it, you appreciate every moment remembering he told you about it.”
Young Stunna released his debut album Natumato on Wednesday 20 October. The 16-track album features the likes of Kabza De Small, DJ Maphorisa, rappers Big Zulu and Blxckie, as well as Pretoria-based duo Mellow & Sleazy.
