June, 24, 2016 (Johannesburg, South Africa) Limpopo raised rapper, Ramatsimela M has released the first single from her debut mixtape; Excavations. The single is entitled Nelson Malema and it has already caused a stir amongst audiences since its release on Youth Day June 16. The song is about the struggles of disadvantaged South Africans and it addresses socio-political issues that most youth choose to avoid discussing in their music. The song is quickly becoming controversial because of its uncensored approach to discussing politics, conscious message, slick satire and blatant honesty and will be sure to spark plenty of conversation during these times of heated election talks.
Ramatsimela M is a 24 year old writer, rapper and filmmaker from Limpopo who is passionate about art, entrepreneurship and activism. She has always been a writer but only started rapping with her friends as a hobby while studying Film & Media at The University of Cape Town around 2010. After recording several songs and performing at a couple of local shows, she realised that music was her calling and she has now been creating music ever since.
Ramatsimela M also owns a start-up media production company called VIS Factory which she hopes to utilise as a vessel to grow, develop and uplift the art industry in Limpopo. The company specialises in the production, publishing and distribution of: photography, sound, film and events. As an activist, she is currently involved with an orphanage called Lethukukhnaya where she voluteers as a performance art teacher. She strongly believes in empowering young minds as they are leaders of tomorrow.
Ramatsimela M says that her debut mix-tape Excavations will be a fusion of Hip Hop, Funk, Soul and many other eclectic sounds. Speaking about the mix-tape she says, “The songs are like my personality. Some are lively and upbeat and some are deep and serious while others are just light or racy or humorous, like me. Music helps me accept myself and own my truth and creating this project has really encouraged me to be real and speak up for the things that I believe in.”
Her mix-tape EXCAVATIONS will be released on 30 July at a launch event in Johannesburg and her single is available for download on her website www.ramastimela.wordpress.com.
