The Reptilez are a Soweto-born, Edenvale based hip hop crew comprising of Nicholas Thebe, Siphiwe Mgaga, Tsepho Nkone and Sthembiso Dliwayo. Founded in Soweto by Nicholas, the crew has been dancing professionally for 7 years as the Reptilez.
What they bring is a hip hop inspired mix typified by big power moves, synchronisation and an original style of popping. “Everything on point.” Says Nicholas. “We look like one person on stage. Everything about us is clean.” And the accolades and awards are piling up.
They won back to back Strictly Hip Hop dance competition in 2009 and 2010 and followed it up by winning Masters of Rhythm on Vuzu, last year. “And now we've got Red Bull Beat Battle in our sights.” Says Sthembiso with a big grin.
