ABOUT PUT ME ON
sportscene x PUMA teamed up on Put Me On to find SA’s next biggest hip hop act. The winner will produce a single alongside Gemini Major, a professional music video by Nate Thomas, a chance to perform at Capsule Fest 2019, exclusive product from PUMA for a year as well as a professional PR package.
In case you missed it and haven’t been following us religiously on our social channels to see who won the sportscene x PUMA Put Me On competition that’s been running since July to find SA’s next hottest hop hop act, we’ve got it all down in a recap for you right here.
For 3 months, Put Me On had the attention of almost every artist in South Africa. The competition gave finalists carefully selected from a base of over 2,000 entries an opportunity to perform at one of the three roadshows that we had going down in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, and from there, it was time to choose our top 5 entries.
Meet our finalists
Costa Tich is pioneering an ‘African Trap’ sound and tends to jump on ‘Gqom’ beats from time to time. His amazing dance background gives him an edge while performing and as our Put Me On runner up, he is definitely an artist to look out for!
KA$HCPT is here to globalise 021. He delivers a strong message with a meaning through his music. He quotes, ‘Music can be anything you choose to make it’. This 19 year old Capetonian will stop at nothing to be heard.
After the release of her first single, Indigo released two other singles and her first mixtape – all within a year. She finds inspiration in the conversations she has with her fans; and continues to make music that inspires every person that listens to her.
Singer songwriter Yuang moved to JHB to pursue his dream of making music. He was quoted saying “I just want to make escape music for the people that support me and at the same time make sure my mom and I are cozy so my goal is to do what I’m doing and a faster pace”.
