Hip-Hop pioneer Siya “Slikour” Metane has a new memoir, ‘Slikour: The Life Story Of A Hip-Hop Pioneer’, co-authored by seasoned music journalist Helen Herimbi-Moremi and published by Penguin Random House South Africa.

We haven’t had a chance to read the book yet, so we have no thoughts at the moment. Below is the publisher’s note on the book: 

Siya ‘Slikour’ Metane is a musician and entrepreneur best known as one of the founding members of the record-breaking hip-hop group Skwatta Kamp. Told with signature humour, this memoir gives readers an all-access pass to the moments and the music that made the man, detailing the courage it took to overcome his self-doubt and to mould himself into a media maverick. 

From small beginnings in the East Rand to gaining mainstream recognition and going solo, celebrity dating and breaking up the band, hitting rock bottom and rising up to make it as a digital media pioneer, Slikour takes us through the highs and lows of his journey to becoming a force to be reckoned with. He unpacks the energy that connected the dots that propelled the success of everyone he came into contact with.

Featuring never-known-before experiences with big names including Zola, Bonang Matheba and Kwesta as well as brands like KFC, Coca-Cola, Butan and Kaizer Chiefs, this is a candid look at what it takes to make it in the South African music and digital media scenes and what connection can achieve.
