Maftown Heights 2015 Lineup
The Maftown Heights 2015 lineup features artists across the genres of Hip Hop and Kwaito, focusing specifically on artists pioneering Motswako in Africa.
They say it’s their mission to “unite the Motswako family under one umbrella alongside the cream of SA and African hip hop/music. Each year an attempt is made to book as many acts from the Motswako fraternity as possible, and the final Motswako crew added to the line-up is based purely on those that were available for the booking.”
