Reluctant to talk about his very dark and troublesome past, Eric Zulu does admit that growing up with no parents and having experienced the passing of 2 of his older brothers, he became more motivated than ever before to pave a way for his people who are still in the conditions he too was once in. In a recent interview, he stated “I remember going a whole week with no food, sleeping on the streets with nowhere to go. Just me, my brother and my sister, everyone died man.”

His second EP “No Sleep”, realesed in May 2022, featuring Chief Middlez from Chicago, Jahan Nostra from New York, Loki and Musiholiq from South Africa and Trxpboiink also from South Africa has had a serious impact on his career and stretched his International reach even wider than ever before.
“I have homies in the UK, In the states and South Africa too so I’m really grateful to have grown up under so many different environments because it allows me to be able to connect with a variety of people through my music.” Some have dubbed Zulu the “Hook King” as his hooks always seem to be out of a bag of treasure that never runs dry. They are always so rich and musical, one can’t help but just fall deep into the vibrant energy he oozes out. Despite the ever so rapidly rising fame and influence, Eric stays the most humble and genuine person many people have ever met.
