Welcome to another thought-provoking episode on SMWX. This time, we are excited to host Siya ‘Slikour’ Metane, a South African rapper, businessman, and visionary who’s consistently shaped the landscape of the South African music industry.
In this in-depth conversation, Slikour shares his insightful views on the pressing theme, “We must own the economy”. He draws from his profound experiences to shed light on how the principles of ownership can fundamentally transform our economy, and why it’s crucial for the next generation.
As an influential member of the renowned hip-hop group Skwatta Kamp and the creative mind behind ‘Slikour on life‘, he is no stranger to overcoming adversity, breaking boundaries, and navigating the complex world of the music industry. Here, he takes us through his journey, highlighting the triumphs and trials that shaped him into the influential figure he is today.
We also delve into his new book, ‘Slikour: The life Story of a Hip-Hop Pioneer’, a powerful reflection on his life and the music business revolution he has been a part of. This conversation is a must-watch for anyone interested in gaining a new perspective on economics, appreciating the power of hip-hop, or understanding the grit it takes to revolutionize an industry.
