About Kanyi mavi

Kanyi Mavi is an award-winning Xhosa spitting emcee from Gugulethu, Cape Town. Her music is centered around the daily dealings of township life. On the E.P ‘Khon’ba’; Kanyi collaborates with various rappers, producers, and vocalists to make a playfully potent mix of songs inspired by Kwaito vibes, RnB hooks, and Xhosa folk songs.

 

Her lead single ‘Lobola’ controversially looks at the tribal customary law around traditional marriage where the roles of woman and man are reversed.

“I have been surrounded by

people who believe in me and my vision”

Kanyi Mavi is a lyrical diviner. Her wordplay and cadence are unmatchable. Her freestyle would make time stop, as Sway and his co-hosts’ faces contort in disbelief at the rapper’s ability to play with words and rhyme bars. She’s already shared the stage with Lauryn Hill and got a major co-sign from Yasiin Bey, who listed her as one of his favorites in South Africa. Kanyi has an interesting story, as she’s a spiritual being, and is in touch with the ancestors. In 2019, Kanyi Mavi geared up for the release of her EPK entitled iGubu Lam (My drum), a drum-based urban music project where she collaborated with Swedish producer, Ted Krotkiewski.
