In the 10 year anniversary issue of HYPE that’s still on shelves (get your copy now) we interviewed Maftown Heights founder Refiloe Ramogase on the future plans for the events and this is what he had to say: “The vision is organic and sustainable growth of the property into a multiple day multiple stage festival that will increasingly afford us the opportunity to showcase the various musical influences of a genre that started in a Mahikeng and is slowly but surely going global. As the Khuli Chana lyric that inspired the name goes: ‘Off to the Maftown Heights! Soon as you reach it you’ll tell me what it sounds like!’ ” –
