05 Flava

I would describe my art as electricity due the fact I believe it will shock you in terms of its originality coming from an artist from Botswana.



Tell us about you and how you would you describe your "art"?
I would describe my art as electricity due the fact I believe it will shock you in terms of its originality coming from an artist from Botswana.

Where are you based?
Im based in Botswana but as from recently recording my latest mixtape in London its safe to say I have a base in London at Jutland Ave Studios.

How long have you been making "art" and how did you get started?
Iv been making art from the age 4 started with breakdancing with the crew freestyle p. From breakdancing I eventually wanted to make my own music to break dance to and for the world to dance to. Been in the industry for over 10 years.

Do you come from an artistic background?
Had my own bedroom studio set up in high school, been breakdancing ,all my life.

What inspires you? What are your influences (Who or What)?
My older brothers really inspired in terms of how they appreciated the hip hop culture and I felt that in order to get their respect I had to do something they couldn’t do and that ws breakdancing. Then I had heard puff daddy used to be dancer and he became a producer/artist and was successful so I decided I could do it.

What is your most proud accomplishment so far?
Representing Botswana in france Toulouse but it is now taking music to new heights locally by recording and shooting videos in London. Being the first to bridge the gap between the two hip hop communities.

What are your tools for creating?
Dancing is my most priceless tool for creating art because if I cant dance to it then it is not a form of art.

What sets you apart from the others?
What sets me apart from others is having no fear and truly understanding how the industry actually works and being connected with the right and backed by one of the biggest upcoming studio in London.

Where are you trying to end up? (5 year plan?)
To be the biggest producer from Botswana to create a platform for all arts to access the international market.

What are your favorite things in life so far?
Organizing everything until the release of my music.

If we gave you P1M what would you do with it?
Show the government of Botswana how much I am ready to invest in the arts and hopefully that will open more doors for us.

Any advice for people trying to do what you do?
Get in contact with me follow me on twitter @05Flava_JF_Ent will take it from there.

Where can people buy/get a hold of your work?
