DJ Kuchi teams up with local music heavyweights on ‘SKY Anthem’
DJ Kuchi leads allstar team including Han-C, Dato Seiko, Jordan Moozy, Charma Gal & Khoisan on collaboration hit ‘SKY Anthem’
Local producer DJ Kuchi has collaborated with teen girl brand SKY Girls BW to produce an empowerment anthem for girls across Botswana. The single, titled ‘SKY Anthem’ is already gaining radio airplay as we enter the festive season.
The featured artists on the song are Dato Seiko, Khoisan, Han-C, Jordan Moozy, Charma Gal and newcomer Gaone, a 14-year-old girl.
DJ Kuchi, who created and produced the song, said:
“I was excited to be approached by SKY Girls to make a song for them. It was a great opportunity to collaborate with the best local talent, some that I’ve worked with before and some that I’ve been hoping to work with for a while. We have so much talent here in Botswana and the experience of creating the song with these diverse artists was really cool.”
SKY Girls is an empowerment brand for teenage girls. It was launched in 2014 and has been so successful in Botswana that it’s since been rolled out in Zambia, Ghana, Kenya and Cote D’Ivoire.
SKY Girls spokesperson Gaone Manatong said:
“We wanted to celebrate SKY’s success and also give people a positive song to enjoy at the end of a difficult year. So we asked the SKY Girls which artists they would want to feature on a SKY anthem and we are so grateful all these amazing artists agreed to work with us. We also featured an actual SKY Girl called Gaone who is an up-and-coming rapper and got the chance to feature on the song too. We are really proud of the song and we hope that it helps teenage girls feel empowered and heard.”
The official music video launched on Friday 4th December and has racked up over 20,000 views in the first 2 days. It was shot by Director Mo at Bojanala Waterfront with styling by King Vanderbilt, and features all the artists plus SKY Girl dancers and celebrity cameos including Sadi Dikgaka, Tshepi Ess and Brian Rasesa. The ‘SKY Anthem’ video is receiving praise for its vision and execution.
