His first recordings were made in the early 1950s for States Records; in the later '50s and early '60s he also recorded singles for other local Chicago labels.

Kaizer Junior
is a South African football (soccer) striker for Premier Soccer League club Kaizer Chiefs.Motaung's goals overshadowed the higher profile players at Kaizer Chiefs this season and took 'Junior' out of the shadow of his illustrious father. Motaung's 12 goals have put him second in the standings for the 2006-07 Castle Premier Soccer League's Top Goal-scorer of the Year Award and on the periphery of selection to future Bafana Bafana squads. It has taken the former Under-23 international three seasons to break through to the highest level of the South African game. From his club debut in 2004, he just two starts in three full seasons - but in the 2006/07 campaign was suddenly elevated into the spotlight, where he quickly thrived. The quality of the 26-year-old Motaung's talent has made him an instant hero and also ended the doubts over his pedigree. It has also been a rare bright light in a mediocre season for Amakhosi.
