The highly anticipated Maftown Heights Special documentary is finally here. The doccie will be broadcasted on Channel O this coming Friday (29 January 2016) at 5 pm.

The documentary tells the story of Maftown Heights from its humble beginnings, with an audience of just 900 people, to becoming Africa’s second largest hip hop festival. Last year, the show saw an audience attendance of just under 10 000.

Maftown Heights was started by rapper Khuli Chana to create a platform for artists with roots in what is now the largest sub-genre of hip hop in South Africa, Motswako, in Johannesburg. It also aimed to celebrate the greatness that has emanated from his home town of Mahikeng, North West, the birthplace of Motswako.

Khuli co-founded Maftown Heights with Dream Team SA Director Refiloe Ramogase back in 2010. The doccie will follow the progress of the event for the past six years, and Khuli and Refiloe will give their insights.

The event has showcased talents like Khuli, Cassper Nyovest, AKA, TKZee, HHP, Tuks, Mo Molemi, JR, Thebe, Skwatta Kamp, Cashtime Fam, Tumi Molekane, Fifi Cooper, Towdee Mac, Lection, Notshi, Magesh, Reason and Pro, just to mention a few.
