Channel O Award Winning local rapper Zeus is set to bounce back with a new album titled ‘Pieces of the Now’ which is set to be the biggest album in Southern Africa. Signed under Sony Music Africa, the legendary rapper has been working on the new project for quite some time now.

His single ‘Bebeto’ from the new upcoming album drops today (Saturday), however a couple of radio stations who got it early have been playing it. According to his Twitter account, the track Bebeto is named after the Brazilian legendary footballer Bebeto. Game Goabaone Bantsi (born 22 July 1986), better known by his stage name Zeus, is a Motswana hip- hop artist, MC and businessman. Zeus released his debut album Freshly Baked in 2008 which included the hits "Back in the days" and "Gijima". The album was generally well received and garnered him a Channel O Music Video award nomination and win in the Best Hip Hop video for the aforementioned "Gijima".

His sophomore offering, 2009 The Flipside has been positively reviewed in both his home country as well as neighbouring South Africa. In 2010, he was ranked seventh in a list of the Top 15 South African Rappers and 4th on MNET's Top 10 African Rappers for 2010 compilation. Zeus currently splits his time between Gaborone, which is his hometown, and Johannesburg, South Africa.  

In the early 2000s, a teenage Zeus began making a name for himself in the hip-hop scene in Botswana. His natural talent, flare, eloquence and refusal to be content with being "just another rapper" made him difficult to brush aside. 2008 saw his years of hard work come to fruition as his debut effort hit the shelves.

Zeus is an internationally celebrated Botswana artist who continues to make amazing strides in his musical journey. The old star has been a trendsetter both locally and internationally. The Imagination hit-maker simply needs no introduction as his musical Guinness has transcended both local and international shores alike. He has for the second time in a row made local music proud by being nominated for the continental and renowned AFRIMMA.

Zeus has more than a decade’s experience performing and recording, primarily through his own company, Do It Yourself Entertainment, as well as major labels, including Universal Music South Africa. His academic qualifications include a Business and Commerce undergraduate degree majoring in Marketing and Management.
