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…

What’s the most interesting thing you have read or seen this week?
 I listened to South African’s Slikour interview. He said, “It’s very important to listen to your time. When its time to fail you should fail, when its time to celebrate you will celebrate, when it’s time to keep quiet, be quite. It was inspiring and very true.

Her counterpart and Botswana’s chart-topping songstress, Amantle Brown has had a successful 2016 and wants to achieve even more in the year 2017. “My team and I want nothing but to create an international brand in Amantle Brown hence my image is totally going to undergo major transformation this year. We also want a diversified sound, with more tempo and international collaborations. I want to see my brand creating employment opportunities for the youth in the entertainment industry or performance arts. Furthermore, I want to stay away from negativity and just do me. I also don’t want to compete with anyone but myself! I want to invest on property first by getting a piece of land and building my own house. Lastly, I’d love to give back to the community.”
