Maxy, the epitome of cultural music

Musician Olebile Sedumedi popularly known as Maxy is the epitome of cultural music, a brave woman who has scaled many challenges to reach and stay at the top. She has seen it all and after 13 years in the music industry she so deservedly regards herself as one of the true brands to emerge from Botswana.

When her career started 14 years ago, Maxy just wanted to do music and did not want to confine herself to any particular genre. She was a free soul who just wanted to do something she enjoyed. Ironically the now very popular musician did not want to be known as a traditional musician. But she insists it was not by default that the track Kalahari(Uwe) became such a big hit and paved her way to stardom.

“I was into Afro-pop and my debut album(Maxy Maximum) was a mixture of genres. It had Afro-pop, Ragga and Borankana. Somehow people instantly fell in love with Uwe which happened to be a traditional Sesarwa song, but there were other popular songs like Gumba Mchochocho, so it was a  beautiful accident for me that people loved the way I did traditional music,” she said.
