The undisputed rap trailblazer

Bongo Maffin's Stoane Seate unleashed the rap ancestor lying dormant in local artists when he first waxed lyrically for the popular Afropop group. Sailing through a medley of words in Setswana rap, Seate unlocked the potential for township youngsters to articulate their frustrations, joy, victories and, in most cases, not poke fun at each other, but blow their trumpets with each milestone they achieved. A Bongo Maffin song was and is still incomplete without Seate's racy yet elegant social commentary.

No doubt he left the door wide open for Tswana rappers that have since come to the fore.
