Phemelo Moikabi, a Botswana dancehall artist affectionately known as Chantty Natural, has done it again.
He is promoting his new single, The Return of the Champion, which is featured on a compilation titled Tell The World: Life Goes On produced in South Africa by Sounds of Edutainment. The compilation is in honour of a fellow Rastafarian, Kaliman who passed on due to violent crime.
The star of Hey Gal fame also recently shot a high definition music video, produced by Art Productions Johannesburg, for the new single, which is on rotation on South African television stations, YouTube and Facebook.
The video will soon start airing on eBotswana. Chantty's music is a combination of hardcore, dancehall, roots/rock reggae and Setswana folk music. He boasts of fluency in Patois (Rastafarian dialect) and Setswana, which he intricately fuses together for an African distinct sound unique only to Chantty Natural.
Born in Lobatse, he resides in Ramotswa where he runs a state of the art
Chantty Natural is currently producing some of BotswanaÕs great upcoming artists such as Lesego Radisweng (LESH-D), The Real Magosi, Mophato Traditional Group, Evolution and Babotlhale.
Dancehall music is definitely growing around Africa, and Phemelo "Chantty Natural" Moikabi is a sure candidate to represent the Botswana dancehall scene.
"My artistic approach to reggae and dancehall is about innovation and music finesse. I believe in quality so I do my best to contribute to the upliftment of music as an art. It just comes naturally to me," he says.
