Who are Afrikan Roots ?
The courageous story of African Roots began in 2010 when the group’s founding member Kenneth “Nyekx” Manyemula decided to form his very first house music band known as Black boys. The group was contracted by (Sheer Music) and the popular songs at that time were ‘Re ja loto’ and ‘Dansa’; they have since changed their name to Afrikan Roots.
As Afrikan Roots, the very first project was Masibambaneng and the related hits that made a big mark in the local music scenes in 2012 were ‘Shikisha’, ‘Akuluwo’ and ‘Bayethe’. Although there were challenges that affected the immediate dreams of the members of the band, it did little to stop the aspirations of its founder, Nyekx, who was more determined than ever to see the band Afrikan Roots make it to the very top of the local music scenes.
The group comprises of Kenneth Mayemula (Nyekx), Katlego Mabasa (DJ Maspila), Musa Mmotsa (DJ Mosco) and Mercedes Boshego. The talented four have let go of the past obstacles and are moving forward in a way many of their peers will admire. They
are creating hit after hit and are gaining so much popularity.
They will be performing live at BRIXTON POW Friday 8th DEC
