Amigo se Raak Rustig is 'n Somer Treffer

Raak Rustig deur Amigo word in 'n lekker saamsing Neo-Soul RnB Hip Hop styl gedoen en bevat ook sterk invloede van Jazz.
Ons reken hierdie nuwe liedjie van Amigo gaan nie net groot wees hierdie somer nie, maar gaan nog lank in die toekoms hoog op aanhangers se persoonlike snitlyste woon en mense kan ook leer om saam te sing met hom lirieke-video, wat ons natuurlik verder onder in die artikel vir julle ingegooi het.

 

Sanger en Rap-kunstenaar Amigo, ook bekend as Mario Laaistock, wie op 21-jarige ouderdom in 1994 blind verklaar is, woon al vir die grootste deel van hom lewe in Eersterivier en is eintlik 'n boorling van Elsiesrivier waar hy grootgeword het.
Amigo het al van jongs af die droom gehad het om in die musiekbedryf te wees en hy het nie dat sy blindheid hom van stryk af bring nie.

Band Aid for Ameen, The Rappin Donkey

It is seldom that an entertainer, over a span of decades, continues to capture the imaginations of not only audiences but also that of other entertainers in a diverse variety of fields and still somehow continues to remain relevant while always evolving.

 

Not only was and is the originator of the Bruin Man Funk continually evolving but by all accounts Ameen Levy still manages to stick to his core identity as an artist, an entertainer and more importantly, as a person.

 

Sadly Ameen Levy and his family were struck by the devastating tragedy of losing their home in a fire on 22 September 2021. To help them through this difficult period, and help get the Ameen Levy Foundation back up and running, Band Aid along with Uncle Cal and P-Fore Online are hosting a benefit event for the entertainer who has not only worked with, influenced and paved the way for so many of his contemporaries and those young artists who he has given a platform to, but who has also given joy to audiences and fans all over the country.

In response to a recent incident in which he was the victim of police brutality, Cape Town Hip Hop artist K-Nine Die Hond has released a song called 'Fok Die Mapuza' and with its hard-hitting lyrics and dope beat, it is bound to find traction amongst those who have had first-hand experience of being victims of police brutality or who have witnessed an innocent friend or family member being assaulted by police officers.


We know that everybody in a Coloured community knows of someone who was smacked around by a police officer for absolutely nothing.
We also know that blogger Shana Fife sees these assaults as not just a few isolated incidents where police officers became a bit rough with a suspect who was "resisting arrest". 
We asked her for her thoughts on why we have this seemingly widespread problem of some Coloured police officers using unnecessary and disproportionate force when dealing with Coloured citizens who in many cases have not committed any crime at all.

In a world and particularly a country like SA, which has an unnatural and bizarre fixation with mediocrity, to be unique, true to one's self and to the game - DOOKOOM is the absolute antithesis of this sad state of affairs. Isaac Mutant stays true to what is indeed a unique aural feel and texture which is almost unbearably tactile - but in a beautifully delicious way of course.
