Rapper and Ubettina Wethu star Sizwe Moeketsi popularly known as Reason has changed his stage name.

Reason no longer goes by Reason, he goes by Sizwe Alakine. This stage name may be for the Amapiano genre he is dabbling his feet in so he may still be Reason amongst the Hip Hop streets.

Sizwe Alakine will be releasing his first single under the name with DJ Maphorisa this coming Friday. The name of the song is Khanda Shisa and with Maphorisa in the production seat, we know it will be a banger.


Reason took to Instagram last month to introduce Mzansi to Sizwe while opening up that that he had not enjoyed making music in a while He said, “I’ve been making music for the last 24hrs. Must have made about 6 to 7 songs I think. Something I haven’t done since I made the album #Azania.

Tweeps are confused as to who this Sizwe Alakine is when most of the posters that have been distributed show Reason and DJ Maphorisa. Well, there you have it, Sizwe Alakine is Reason and this is just a rebrand for his Amapiano career.

This is what some tweeps had to say about the name switch up:
