Born in the south side of Johannesburg and is originated in Estcourt, a town in the uThukela District of KwaZulu-Natal Province, South Africa. “My name is Mfihlakalo Siphesihle Mbanjwa (20yrs) and go by the name of "LaTique", a young versatile music producer, who specializes in Deep/Tech house music and believes his music is authentic and can bring a change in the South African Deep House Scene”.

LaTique discovered his music ambitions and skills back in 2012, where his brother “Sandile Mbanjwa” known as “Cilongo” had a huge influence in having him to engage with the music as a whole. It all started as a keyboard player at church, “I use to love playing around with keys, and I would stand besides my brother the whole time, just so I can see and catch a few things, especially the basics” says LaTique. As the years went by, LaTique began to have interest in music production, where he would spend hours and hours sitting besides his brother when he had his music production sessions. In 2013 LaTique began with music production, “I then got myself a Pentium 4 pc, and the only thing I couldn’t wait to get was “Fruit Loops Studio”, which is a production software I still prefer even ngoku!(even Today)”, says LaTique.
As time went by, LaTique met Sifiso Mandlathi known as “Salvador”, who then introduced him to the likes of Tshepiso Eugine Dondolo(Kiddy Deep) and the late Morena Luther Melato (DJ Cytonik). This is when he got to have his first release in the digital platforms, but back then, he was known as “Harmony”.

2016 had not been the best year for LaTique in music, because he had to slow down and put all his focus in his books, as this was the year he matriculated. 2017 definitely had to be a bounce back for him, as things began to happen and this is when he had all the time he needed for music. It had been a lovely journey for LaTique in the past few years, and with God’s grace, he got to release with international labels like DM recordings (UK) , etc.

Jumping to 2019, the best highlight for LaTique, as this was the year where he got to meet plenty producers and especially South Africa’s Deep House Guru “Pierre Johnson”, where they collaborated on a stunning tune and released a fire single called “Money & Power” with one of the biggest labels in SA “Stay True Sounds”. This had been a door opener for LaTique, as he prepares for more fire releases in 2020.
LaTique is very ambitious, when he isn’t glued to a computer screen, he spends time working in the garden, learning other music instruments, and trying very hard not to be the worst PlayStation player.

“My biggest goal in life is to change people’s lives through my music and to be South Africa’s Icon in a way that inspires all the underground Kats that believe in me and my music. I am believer, and with God by my side, nothing is impossible”.
