Watch Maftown Rap Trio Hash One’s 'Time of My Life' Video

Maftown rap trio Hash One release the video for "Time Of My Life."


After featuring in Okayafrica's First Look Friday series back in May, Maftown misfits Hash One returned this month with the video for their latest single, "Time of My Life." The song, which was released last year as part of Khuli Chana’s Red Bull Editions promotional CD, is a bouncy, feel good banger with serious undertones. Its visuals come courtesy of Uprooted Media, and juxtapose the group’s fun times against their real day-to-day struggles. The radio-friendly single also features former labelmate and fellow Maftown representative Tshego on the hook, crooning over a booming baseline and crisp production.

Hash One are currently in the studio recording their next project. Their follow-up single, "Kgalemela," should be out in December. Until then, watch the "Time Of My Life" video below, and follow Hash One on facebook and twitter. For more from Maftown watch the "Motswako Originator" Khuli Chana spend a day out in NYC with Okayafrica TV plus get to know the group's Sotho Mafia labelmate Profresher KT via First Look Friday.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
