Botswana’s Ruff Riddims (now tweeting) have been putting in work lately. Now that the studio is up and running, they’ve been grinding out some promising stuff — a mix of kwaito and kwasa-kwasa, hip-hop and reggae — and they’re starting to reach out, nationally and internationally, to share their work with the wider world.
Check these two recent videos, one by riddim-rider Tebza, the other by young up-and-comer Skeat, who bubbles over a classic sounding (i.e., mid-90s, v housey) kwaito track. Nice vids too!
Oh, and the MaSuper Star stuff — wow, wait til you hear that! Fruityloopy beats, loose acoustic guitars, tight joyous vox. RUFF RIDDIMS, nuff said. Gwaan, Bots bredren–

There’s always been more to Botswana than Alexander McCall Smith’s imagination.
BTW, some of the most prolific and commercially successful DJs in neighboring South Africa, have come from Botswana.
