After 27 years of making music, South African hip-hop group Skwatta Kamp is calling it quits. The group, which consists of Infa, Nish, Shugasmakx, Flabba, Nemza, Slikour, and Bozza, released their final album, SVN, today.
SVN is a fitting end to a long and successful career. The album features the group’s signature sound, which blends hip-hop, kwaito, and soul. The songs are also personal and introspective, reflecting on the group’s experiences over the years.
In an interview with Sowetan, Slikour said that SVN is a “tribute to our long-time friendship, experiences, dreams, shared conversations, and a continued commitment to speaking one’s truth.” He also said that the album is a way to “bring closure to people who grew up following us and listening to our music.”
Skwatta Kamp has been through a lot together over the years. They’ve seen each other through highs and lows, and they’ve always come out stronger. They’ve also lost two members, Nkululeko “Flabba” Habedi and Musawenkosi Molefe, aka Nish. But through it all, they’ve remained a tight-knit group.
Bozza said that the group’s journey has been “very spiritual.” He said that they never got into music for the money, but because they loved it. He also said that they’ve always been honest with each other, which is what has kept them together for so long.
Skwatta Kamp is a true South African success story. They’ve come a long way from their humble beginnings in the townships, and they’ve left their mark on the music industry. They’re an inspiration to many, and their music will continue to be enjoyed by fans for years to come.
