Xenophobia is a horrific occurrence that has led to the blood shed of our African brothers, sisters and children. This incident has left a dark cloud across South Africa and continues to spread throughout the country.
Africa unite, in these dark times we need to protect each other rather than fighting against each other. We are one, children of the African soil. Our differences make us individuals as a collective we form a nation.
We need to be tolerant and love one another and remain united. Umntu ngumntu ngabantu. No man is an island.
Let us unite and take against xenophobia, say no to xenophobia.

The name Khuli Chana is synonymous with the word Motswako. Motswako encompasses elements from various musical backgrounds. It involves street-talk and highly influential messages in Setswana, English and other South African languages which Khuli Chana has dubbed “Tswenglish”.
Khuli Chana brings a different flavour and sound, not only to this genre of music but also to the Hip-Hop scene. Khuli Chana is not new to the music industry; in the early 90′s he formed a duo with Kay-G called “Jazzzadaz”. They then joined forces with Towdee Mac to form the group, Morafe.
Khuli Chana’s debut solo album, The MotswakOriginator, was released in November 2009. It included hit singles such as “Tswakstikem”, “Sthandwa Sam”, “Freshe” and “No More Hunger” which all dominated the airwaves and saw Khuli Chana win numerous awards and nominations over the next 2 years. A remix
of the song “No More Hunger” was requested by Action Aid South Africa to be featured on their Hunger Free Campaign music compilation which featured artists from around the continent.
