Professor (born Mkhonzeni Professor Langa on 27 March 1978) is a South Africa recording artist, songwriter and record producer. He is one of the last remaining artist of the once dominant Kwaito, perhaps only comparable to fellow Durbanite L'vovo who has also remained exclusively Kwaito artist. Professor is known for his distinct unmistakable husky voice and a somewhat playfully flippant delivery of lyrics on his songs.

Professor is signed to Oskido's Kalawa Jazmee Records and continues to work closely with Durban's Afrotainment. In September 2017 he launched his own record label, Proper Files, to which long time mentor/ collaborator, Oskido, advised him to refrain from competing but rather collaborate for the good and advancement of the music industry in South Africa.
