Iconic South African hip hop group Skwatta camp member, Siyabonga Metane aka Slikour, is urging upcoming artists to acquaint themselves with how music has evolved over the years to refine their craft.
Slikour was speaking to YNews on Skwatta Camp’s latest album, which marks the group’s 27 years in the industry.
The album, SVN, was released on Freedom Day and is the group’s seventh and last offering.
The group’s music piece consists of 14 tracks and is said to honour the seven original founders of the award-winning ensemble.
South Africans were first introduced to Skwatta Camp in the early 2000s, five years after it was founded by Infa, Nish, Shugasmakx, Flabba, Nemza, Slikour, and Bozza and later Relo.
The award-winning hip hop group has lost two of its members over the years.
In 2015, Nkululeko “Flabba” Habedi was fatally stabbed by his girlfriend, while in 2021 Musawenkosi “Nish” Molefe passed away due to COVID-19 complications.
Slikour says the band’s latest offering has maintained the group’s original sound.
