Penny Penny
Giyani Kulani (born in Limpopo in 1962), better known by his stage name Penny Penny is a South African musician and politician,[1] known affectionately as the "Shangaan Disco King" for the musical style he helped popularise.[2] He was the youngest of 68 children from a local doctor with 25 wives. His family was poor, meaning he received no education, but he soon became known for his dancing and was nicknamed Penny.[1] Aged 19, he worked on a West Driefontein goldmine near Carletonville, and soon left to escape the region's poor working conditions, although he did win several breakdancing trophies before his departure.[3] His breakthrough came with the recording and release of his 1994 debut album Shaka Bundu, which was recorded in a week using little gear but went on to sale 250,000 copies in the country.[4] The music features Tsonga (or Shangaan) disco sound, which emerged in Penny's native Tsonga culture,[5] fused with contemporary house music from the United States.[6] Unusually, th
