avatar for Mavathii


Johannesburg, new Kwaito artist, Mavathii will be releasing his debut single, “Diwa Kae”
available for free for a limited time on Soundcloud and Bandcamp on 18/09/2016 but will
also appear on the full length musical project entitled “Kwaito Resurrector”.
Kwaito Resurrector is a different look at traditional thoughts and opinions on what the
Kwaito genre is and can become. It contains a lot of feel good party rythms and catchy
grooves with a classic 1990s sound and the original Kwaito aesthetic combined with more
current elements. Original 90s Kwaito with 2016 sensibilities. “Diwa Kae” will lead this
musical project as the 1st single.
Mavathii is a Johannesburg based, Mahikeng native who has been working tirelessly in the
studio environment for just under s decade as a qualified sound engineer and advisor. As of
late he has branched out as a lead artist. Many artists today make Kwaito records and hide
under a different umbrella because Kwaito has lost its gloss and grandeur, “Diwa Kae” is the
beginning of return of the mystique regarding “Kwaito” as a musical genre and culture in pop
culture in 2016.
The album contains guest appearances from other Mahikeng natives such as Hash One’s Nasi
Tautona, Family Tree’s Cassper Nyovest and Tshego to name a few.
