Motswako is a southern African genre of hip hop most that originated from a small town called Mafikeng, in South Africa in the mid 1990s. It consists of a mix of rap lyrics in both the local language (Setswana) and English layered on a steady beat. Other languages used include Zulu, French and Afrikaans as per the rapper's origin.
Other notable Motswako contributors are legends like @Towdeemac, @HipHopPantsula, @KayGizm and the up'n'coming @MagleraDoeBoy.
The legendary South African Motswako-rapper Khuli Chana and his entourage will guest Sweden in June to celebrate the rise of Motswako and give homage to the African One Source platform he has built in collaboration with The Absolut Company.
