Hossman’s ‘Double bubbles’ re-surfaces

Publishing Date : 09 April, 2018


Born Keitshepile Xhao he is known as Hossman in the music circles having made his mark back in the 90’s as a member of the CEO’s crew which dominated the Ngamiland region back then. The towering figure is also part of the Maun Hip Hop Movement which started in 2015 and mobilizes and exposes talent in the region.

Last week Hossman launched the double release of his re-mastered singles titled ‘Double Bubbles’ and ‘Ke Pantsula’ which were both recorded in 2010 but released in 2016. While speaking to WeekendLife, Hossman said he found the need to re-master the two singles and release them again because in 2016 he was faced with financial difficulties and that made it difficult for him to market and produce them the way he wanted.

Hossman is a Motswako Hip Hop artist and has attested that his music is inspired by his lifetime experiences and he wants to touch people’s lives. Inspired by the legacy of Tupac and BIG, he says locally he follows and is aroused by the likes of Scar and Zeus among others. With his second release of the two singles, the reception has now been overwhelming and people are starting to appreciate his music and style. Tall as he is, Hossman resembles his homeboy and also the descendent of the Ngamiland region, a renowned rapper of all times HT also known as Tautona.

He is the former member of the CEO’s crew which dominated Maun back in the 90’s. The crew included Aster, Chester, Capital O and Hossman himself and they recorded six singles which were never released. He says the other crew members are at the moment busy with their lives and have taken a break from music.

As a member of the Maun Hip Hop movement which he helped establish in 2015, he says the idea is to expose top talent which he says is in abundance in their region and expose them to new opportunities. He says Maun is far from the City and thus talent cannot be harnessed artlessly.

The movement has music projects that they build as a group and they also groom individual talent that they help market. Hossman said he has now relocated to Gaborone and looking forward to working hard on both his double single release and the Maun Hip Hop Movement projects. His music was recorded and produced at Kill Entertainment Records and CMD Records in Maun where he was based. His lyrics are 70% in English 30% Setswana.
