THE 411 FROM SLIKOUR
Siyabonga Metane aka ‘Slikour’ is a rapper-turned-businessman.
He started out his music career performing a genre that was not mainstream at the time.
This made it difficult for him and his group to break into the entertainment industry,
but his love for music drove him to master his craft making him one of the most respected hip hop artists in South Africa.
He wants to pass down his knowledge and encourage all artists on the KFC Soundbite chart to make full use of the platform to drive their music career.
“People are trying to get to know you and hear your story, so you have the responsibility to showcase your world in the most honest possible way and delivery is key.” – Slikour
