Niks Mapha!

╃ Niks Mapha! ╄

Batuk is an acclaimed music project from Johannesburg, South Africa, lead by vocalist /rapper Manteiga and producer Spoek Mathambo, who having brought their riotous take on modern African music to stages around the world, came back in 2018 with their album, Kasi Royalty.

Shake your booty to a unique fusion of Mozambican and South African flair, ‘Niks Mapha!’ with a fresh dusting of “meaningful Old Skool” hip hop combined with kwaito (slowed-down house music) and its deep-seated township roots that come from a fresh blend of soul and RnB lead by a female vocalist/rapper

Niks Mapha is an expression used by children in the townships … The rule is that when you’re the first to say it, you do not have to give a piece of your chocolate, or a little bit of your ice cream or your chips. It exempts you from having to share. If you do not say it, you have to share everything. This song is about a woman who does not share her man! With nobody! Ever! and “Niks Mapha” marry electronic music and kwaito perfectly.
