Who is Vee Mampeezy?
The pocket-sized Kwaito sensation known to his fan as Vee Mampeezy or simply Vee, was born Odirile Sento 37 years ago in Hukuntsi. Vee grew up almost entirely in Hukuntsi and Gaborone, Botswana. With a clutch of awards under his belt, the deeply religious star has enjoyed two decades’ success in the music industry.
“My first album was released under Black Money Makers before I moved on to Eric Ramco. The company made me who I am and it was always my dream to grow it into something big,” the diminutive Kwaito star-turned record label executive says.
Last year, Vee’s video for his highly addictive hit single, “Dumalana” became the most viewed music video in Botswana.
