We love receiving new music here at Not Just Ok South Africa and the amount of quality sounds coming out of the Southern hemisphere have got us excited for the future of African music. You’re probably well aware of the fact that South Africa’s hip hop scene is giving birth to some raw and talented acts and one such artist is Warrenton bred, Thato Mahlabe who is known by his stagename, Heartdammit or “HD” for short.
According to his PR team, HD’s story is a really interesting one. After dropping out of school, he went on to put his heart into his music and the risky decision is beginning to pay off.
“After dropping out of University in pursuit to follow his music career and passion, the odds are, this has been the best move not to the detriment of him already utilising his abilities as a Graphic designer.
After the influx of fans Lenyatso received, this motivated the artist, who produces his own music, writes his own lyrics and masters all his songs,to release his EP Launch titled “Coffee Break” early 2017, which has 7 Tracks, With ” No Sleep” and ” Gin and Juice” being the most popular.
Heartdammit believes that music is timeless and inspirational, and hopes that his passion will help him give back to his community through collaboration with younger artists and musicians who share the same passion.”
