Bulawayo boy powers SA Boity’s music success. While his camera snapped, Bash Vision was also absorbing tricks of the trade from Nyovest, a person whose gift for marketing and branding has seen him fill arenas and climb to the apex of South African music.

To many followers of the music from Mzansi, Sebastian “Bash Vision” Jameson was introduced because the man with the camera, capturing images of rapper Cassper Nyovest at the onset of the rapper’s whirlwind career.

At some point, however, the boy from the town of Kings had to go away the nest and he couldn’t have hoped for a far better start to life without Nyovest, snagging his ex-beau Boity as his first major client as he dived into management.

Since then, Bash has managed to rework Boity from a mere presenter and actor dabbling in music to a force in South African music, some extent that was brought home when she was signed by iconic the label, Def Jam.

In an interview with Hype, Bash revealed the painstaking work that visited transforming Boity into a fully-fledged rapper

“And then obviously with Boity on her rap career and cementing it going platinum also with Wuz Dat,” he said as he listed the highlight of his career. I wasn’t involved within the song-making of that but definitely within the touring and just ensuring that, as an artist, she is believable, performing on making promoters trust her, calling during a lot of favors you know? So those are my best moments.”

Bash also highlighted his influence on Nyovest’s early career, including arranging the recording session involving the rapper and Zimbabwean producer Brian Soko, a session that gave birth to Nyovest’s monster hit, Phumakim.

“My highest moment was Cassper’s first album, Tsholofelo. I might say performing on that was one of my career highlights. Just being a neighborhood of that whole process from the start and dealing with the music. At the time I used to be Cassper’s videographer and photographer. I wont to play other small roles and it had been literally falling in here and there. But being a part of the studio sessions playing a little part therein, you know? I linked Cassper and Soko together for the session that Phumakim came out of,” he said.

Bash was also there for the rebirth of fellow Zimbabwean Nadia Nakai’s career, taking charge after Nyovest signed her to his genealogy stable.

“When I used to be a genealogy, Cassper was playing at the airport in Zimbabwe, when he told Nakai that she should sign to Family Tree…you know the Suge Knight speech…’ Come to death house Records.’ I then spoke to Cassper and asked if he was serious about it and he said yeah, then I said I could make it happen because I’d managed her before…

And I signed Nadia to genealogy which was my first as a manager – developing the sounds, image, performances, producing all the beats and just rebranding and recreating Nadia Nakai,” he said.
