This week, we bring you yet another great track straight out of Botswana. Released on June 19, this tune recently came to our attention when a friend posted it on Facebook. We think it’s a catchy tune and hope you’ll all enjoy it as much as we did. Have a listen and see what you think.
A little background on Han C
Not much information is readily available about 22-year old Han C aka Hanceford Han-c Magapatona on the www.
His first radio single ‘Sedilaaka’ on which he collaborated with local drummer, Chrispin and Team Distant was released in 2015 and stayed at the top of the local charts for over 21 weeks. It remains a firm favourite.
He’s worked with well-known Botswana music industry giants such as Dr Malinga, DJ Kuchi, Chrispin, Team Distant and Nt Base, among others.
He was a finalist on the talent search show, My African Dream
As a struggling musician trying to break into the notoriously tough Botswana music industry, Han-C would send his demos to established artists. On listening to his voice, DJ Chrispin reportedly mistook his sweet and smooth trademark voice for a woman’s!
Fans of Han C will be happy to know he recently promised via his Facebook page that he’s set to release an album ‘soon’. No date was indicated, sadly. We can’t wait to find out if it’s as catchy as Seileng.
What do you think of Seileng, would you give it a thumbs up or thumbs down? Do you know of any other catchy home-grown tracks you’d be happy to share with YourBotswana and the rest of the world?
