Indigenous Hip Hop Projects (IHHP) : Mount Isa - "Stop"

IHHP artists in partnership with North West Queensland Primary Health Care (Medicare Local), Mount Isa City Council and Mount Isa Flexi School, worked alongside the talented students from Mount Isa community to create the health promotion music video called "STOP". IHHP was privileged to visit Mount Isa - Kalkadoon Country talking about health issues around tackling tobacco and dangers of petrol sniffing, social and emotional well being. If this song is any indication of the future leaders of the Mount Isa community, then look out, because they are strong, proud and DEADLY!!! This song is guaranteed to make you think twice about smoking and sniffing. Power to the young leaders, may your voice be heard, may you stand proud, black and strong.

Khwezi Mphatlalatsane : Botswana Hip Hop On Afrihooop

Born 13th July, 1984 at Princess Marina Hospital, to a Xhosa mother & Swati father,he was grew-up in Botswana’s capital, Gaborone. First year of high school was in Johannesburg, South Africa. Within the very same metropolis, Khwezi fell in love with the art of emceeing circa 1998. His means of expression were through writing thought-snippets in the form of poetry. 

Khwezi recorded his first track in 2003 at P-Side studios with Gofaone ‘Goof’ Mapitse (Ramco) who produced it. His first performance was held that same year as a curtain raiser for Mista T, now known as Nomadic. 

In 2004 Khwezi met up with the band Khoitrans, an ensemble comprised of Bonolo ‘B-Note’ Mogotsi, Moratiwa Molema, Myizer Matlhaku & Shafiek Kimmie. Along with aforementioned B-Note, Khwezi recorded his first single ‘Vatsey’ in 2005 at Swett Shoppe. The track features Moses Khumalo, a renowned jazz saxophonist who passed away in 2006. Due to managerial ineptitude, the recording deal with Swett Shoppe went sour in 2006. 

2007 had Khwezi randomly recording at yet another studio, Madd Labb Productions with the likes of Illushen, D.O.G, King Ming & Buckshot. A tally of four tracks was the result. 
Through Fishmaan, Khwezi was introduced to Mex of Mexyland Studios in 2008. Around the same time People of Religious Nature (P.O.R.N) was born, comprising of Ngozi Chukura, Phenyo ‘Shorti Bang’ Maswabi & Khwezi Nsibande. 

Khwezi also got to know a team of American exchange students based at the University of Botswana. These were Daniel Schwarts (Photographer), Sebastian Modak (Djambe,Conga &Drums/Percusions) from Colombia, Raphael Verrazza (Keyboardist) from Mexico & Pat Arp (Bass Guitarist/Vocalist) from Texas. This ensemble formed the backup band for P.O.R.N, along with Zimbabwean natives Dominic ‘Mex’ Mandindo & Langa Khumalo as the sound engineers. The album Word Truth Fortune [W.T.F.] was recorded but never released. Due to the exchange students heading back to their respective countries & remnant P.O.R.N artists (Khwezi, Ngozi, Phenyo) having creative disputes, all this led to a split up. 
In 2009 Khwezi set his attention on a solo project, which includes some tracks recorded with the band. He intends to release the tracks he did besides the P.O.R.N album, hopefully in later in the year as he has had to reconfigure the album several times to suit the genre of music that he does. Producers featured on the album are Mex, B-Note, Mark Sunners, Krafty, & Man-E. Behind the live tracks are Pat Arp (Bass Guitar/Vocals), Sebastian Modak (Drums/Djembe) & Raphael Varazza (Pianist). Recordings were made at Mexyland Studios, Altitude Sounds & XLT Productions. 

Featured artists are Konkrete (Altitude Sounds), Nomadic (Independent), King Ming (Independent),Illushen (Madd Labb Studios) Samba T, Short Bang, Fishmaan & Baba Sbomo with crème de la crème vocalists Ngozi Chukura, Pat Arp, Mark Sunners & Bundu Lama. The album name is ‘STARDUZT’. The single, ‘Back Then’ which features Fishmaan & Bundu Lama are already enjoying airplay on local radio stations and reception is good. 

Discography & Features: 
Over the years, Khwezi has worked with some of the Botswana’s elite in the industry. These are some of the Album/Mixtape art covers and track listings: 

2011 saw the release of Khwezi’s first Mixtape, Between the Lightyears, which is a collection of both album and mixtape material from various studio sessions. It features the likes of Kebuileng, Zuziwe, Mark Sunners, Konkrete, Samba-T, King Ming, Aether and SA-1. On production is none other, Bonolo ‘B-Note’ Mogotsi, Alias/Mark Sunners, K-9, Mex and Obizzy. Arranged and mastered at HeavenSent Studio’s and distributed/marketed by Lapologa Magazine. 

2010 was the planned year of release for Khwezi’s solo effort since working with People of Religious Nature [P.O.R.N]. Starduzt features titans like Nomadic, Apollo Diablo and Bundu Lama to name a few with production from B-Note, Alias, Man-E and Mex. This album has not been released officially as the due date is yet to be announced.

The Home Of Botswana Hip Hop By Elias Tebogo On eliasfm.co.bw

The Home Of Botswana Hip Hop

Born and raised in Francistown by Catherine Elias, Tebogo Elias grew up listening to kwaito mostly by Odirile Sento aka Vee and Eskimos. He then relocated to Selebi Phikwe at an early age but still visited his roots.

He finished his Junior School in Phatsimo Community (2003) and later on went to Selebi Phikwe Senior where completed his studies in (2005). He then went on further and did two years in University of Botswana as Bachelor of Science student in 2006.

In 2009 he relocated to Canada for further studies to study Mineral Processing Engineering through a joint work of W.U.S.C and the Department of Student Placement in The Ministry of Education (Botswana).

During his stay in Canada he got to enjoy some of the best Botswana Hip Hop Music he had ever listened to through some free downloads on Facebook and twitter.

On his 3rd year listening to this music he took upon himself to launch an Online radio station (Elias FM) which he discovered through YouTube Tutorials on online radio stations and trial and error instances .He kept building this project which he later managed to focus it into making sure that more people got fully exposed to one of the genres that is really slept on from his country.

After absolutely discovering by mistake this new project, he was then faced with a challenge of now organising the music. So, he started listening and collecting more on daily basis but now with a purpose of creating something other people can enjoy .He also spent more time on the internet to learn more about managing a website/blogs and other Online radio Stations and kept doing that throughout building the project with doubts at times but never looked back up to this day.

ELIAS FM is the biggest goal he has ever set for himself to achieve after his Mineral Processing Engineering Degree. While pursuing his degrees he still find time to work on this project with the hope that one day it will be as he visualised it when watching YouTube Tutorials.
