In 2016, Amantle Brown was indisputably the hottest musician in Botswana courtesy of her two songs; ‘Black Mampatile’ and ‘Moratiwa’ which heatedly and recurrently topped Botswana’s Top 20 most played songs across all the five radio stations; being Duma FM, Gabz FM, RB1, RB2 and Yarona FM. For the entire duration of May 2016; Amantle Brown’s ‘Black Mampatile’ spun 97 times across all the five radio stations and continued its dominance during the month of June with 73 spins.
Her love affair with another musician Jujuboy of Hurt Me fame was probably a classic template on how artists should fall in love with each. The duo was always together, shared gigs and everything else in between. However, as good things always come to end, the duo has called it quits and Amantle Brown was quick to set her foot forward back on studio to do music – her first love. Her latest collaboration with A.T.I on Paakanyo, if it’s anything to go by, surely proves that Amantle Brown is back with a bang. She is this week’s crush…
