Kaey Maxx, also famed as Mista Feel Good, a Hip Hop and RnB artist from Mmadinare but based in Gaborone, recently dropped an eight-track mixtape titled Big Dawg Status.

In an interview with Showtime, he explained that the mixtape was a whole compilation of songs with different emotions. He said the tape was a dedication to everyone who is trying to change their life for the better. He added that it was also a way of him telling people his story. “The songs were put together in June and July at different studios, including Diamond Melodies Records. They were touched by the likes of Flacko Grandsonn, DintleOnTheTrack and King Plaka. I featured a few artists in the tape including Princess and President TSS. I was the composer, songwriter and also the producer in most of the songs with the help of my team. Ever since I started showing interest in music back in 2016, I have always wanted to drop a mixtape, an EP and an album,” he said. The young man further pointed out that he was grateful that he finally got the opportunity to drop it considering the fact that he had only been dropping singles and music videos. He said it was such a good feeling for him to drop his first ever tape adding that he was also looking forward to dropping more of those. Just like any other musician, he said he goes through a lot of challenges throughout the process. Those include funding, marketing his music to a wider population. He also said he faced lack of enough time to work as he also has side hustles since the music did not really put food on the plate yet, hence his decision to start a business.

Despite going through the challenges, Kaey Maxx said he was slowly securing the bag. He explained that dropping the tape helped him grow his audience as he also got the opportunity to be interviewed by one of the greatest Mdu Tha Party at RB2. He added that he also managed to bag collaboration with Jackalass Onetym and DintleOnTheTrack, artists who played a huge role in his growth with their inspiration. “With the consistency and dedication I have for music, I see myself as the next big thing and one of the artists Botswana never had. In the next five years I see myself bringing international artists to Botswana just to see how talented we are this side. I am also the founder of a growing bottled water business called Pure Drop 02. I also see Pure Drop 02 as one of the biggest bottled water business in the industry,” said the artist.
