As a build up to the Maftown Heights event on 30 November 2012, The Maftown Heights platform will be doing a daily spotlight feature on the artists on the Maftown Heights line-up. Remember, you can find out all the info on the anticipated event (featuring HHP, Khuli, Towdeemac, Cassper Nyovest, AKA, L-tido, and many more) on www.maftownheights.com. This week, they catch up with Flex Boogie. If you don’t know, get familiar.
Who is Flex Boogie?
By far one of South Africa’s most engaging hip hop artists on stage and on one wax delivering stellar motswako lyrics coupled with a beautiful insight into a mind of a growing black creative on the cusp of realising all of his dreams.
With a wonderful background in the South African arts and boasting a great collaborations roaster with the cream of the country’s crop FlexBoogie is poised in prime position to rival any artist when it comes to presentation, energetic live performance and his amazing knack to entertain and capture the attention of any listener at ear’s distance.
What does Maftown Heights mean to you?
Personally I believe in Maftown Heights as being a celebration of our language/s. As much of a cocktail mix as I am, lol, I think as Motswako artists we preserve the Setswana language and do good in preserving our heritage so our fans and our people can stand Proud in a westernised world. We definitely are custodians of our own identity. That speaks a million worthy volumes. Maftown Heights makes me proud of us.
What don’t people know about Flex Boogie?
I always rehearse with my two daughters. They’re the most biased audience I know. Hahaha
