Moddaw Artist Bio
Moddaw is a Lesotho born and Ficksburg based recording and performing trap artist. He was first introduced to HipHop in the early 2000s and started recording his own music in 2008. He has since grown as a musician and has tapped into a variety of musical genres including dancehall, rnb and kwaito. As music is ever evolving, he started off as a rapper but has now switched to the new age genre of Trap music also known as EDM which is a sub-genre of HipHop. While he speaks Sesotho as his first language, his music is widely written in English with small patches of Sesotho here and there. His style would simply be put as a mixture of at least three music styles that are dance music, hiphop and dub. As unique as any artist would try to be, Moddaw has been inspired over time by the likes of american trap sensations like Future, Young Thug and T.I.
His most recent release is a fourteen track trap album called King Solomoni released on 4th October 2017. It is for this very album that he is a Best HipHop Award nominee in the Lesotho Ultimate Music Awards. Through it he describes himself, tells the story of his struggles, prays for a better life and highlights what sort of life he is currently living. He has graced stages with performances locally and internationally including the Finite Women Appreciation Awards, TY Goes Mad music festival and Lesotho Reggae and DanceHall Music Festival just to mention a few. Currently he is on his new album promo tour covering at least two areas in Lesotho and South Africa per month.
Besides being an artist himself, Moddaw is an artist manager, music blogger and journalist, a video producer and music promoter.
