Khuli to col­lab­o­rate with Juvy

Lesotho Times - - Weekender - Mo­halenyane Phakela

SOUTH African Motswako rap­per, Khu­lane “Khuli Chana” Morule, says he in­tends to col­lab­o­rate with lo­cal artists with rap­per Juvy his first port of call.

Khuli Chana head­lined Le­sotho Planned Par­ent­hood As­so­ci­a­tion’s (LPPA) pageant for ter­tiary in­sti­tu­tions at the Na­tional Univer­sity of Le­sotho’s Nether­lands Hall in Roma on Satur­day.

The “Motswako Orig­i­nater”, as he is af­fec­tion­ately known by his hordes of fans, put up a scin­til­lat­ing per­for­mance which left rev­ellers ask­ing for more.

Speak­ing to the Week­ender on the side­lines of the pageant, Khuli Chana said he re­garded Le­sotho as his sec­ond home and plans were afoot to col­lab­o­rate with a lo­cal artist.

“I have gen­uine love for Le­sotho, es­pe­cially be­cause its cul­ture is vin­tage and orig­i­nal,” he said.

“My aim is to work with lo­cal artists, es­pe­cially those whose sound is tra­di­tional. I need to find a vo­cal­ist from around here.

“For all the artists who want to work with me, I can be reached via so­cial me­dia net­works such as Twit­ter and In­stra­gram on the han­dle @khulichana.”

The Freshe hit maker said he was look­ing for­ward to per­form­ing again in Le­sotho dur­ing the main event of the Spring Mad­ness on 31 Oc­to­ber at Vic­to­ria Pool­side in Maseru. It will also fea­ture the for­eign con­tin­gent of Zeus, Dun­can, Lec­tion, Towdeemac, Khosi­mowa, Adrianto, DJ Khenzo, Mr Massie, DJ Zondi and DJ Tira.

The lo­cal acts will in­clude L-tore, Juvy, St­lofa, Hally, Skebz D, Nirex, Axo Mind, Queen Mo, Sadon, Mr Beekay, T-mech, Blaze, Silent Fate, Peele Feela, Thi­zozo, Da Starr and Dal­las T.

“I will be in Le­sotho again for the Motswako In­va­sion on the last day of this month and I in­tend to visit this beau­ti­ful coun­try as of­ten as pos­si­ble,” Khuli Chana said.

Khuli Chana added that he was im­pressed by the per­for­mance of Juvy, who was the open­ing act at the pageant, say­ing they would soon dis­cuss a col­lab­o­ra­tion.

“One other thing I no­ticed is that this kid, Juvy, is very ta­lented and the au­di­ence loved him,” the Ma­hamba Yetwa star noted.

“His per­for­mance was truly out­stand­ing and we will work on some­thing very soon.”

Con­tacted for com­ment, Juvy, whose sin­gle Skipa Se Ntekane is cur­rently a club an­them, said he felt “hon­oured” by the recog­ni­tion.

“Khuli Chana is one of the top rap­pers in South Africa, and that is why he is called the Motswako Orig­i­na­tor. I look up to him and am in­spired by the way he ar­ranges his songs,” said Juvy.

“When he told me that he wanted to work with me, it felt like one of those in­de­scrib­able mo­ments which proved that my hard work is re­ally pay­ing off.”

He added: “I gave him a copy of my lat­est of­fer­ing, Hustler By Pro­fes­sion, and Khuli Chana said he would lis­ten to it and fi­nalise the deal on 31 Oc­to­ber when he comes to Maseru.”
