ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Isaac Ramoshidi Bokaba was born Isaac Ramoshidi Moeketsi in Skilpadfontein clinic Mpumalanga, to a domestic worker mother during the former South African apartheid regime and five days after the controversial 1976 Soweto students uprising. His artistic career started at a tender age while based in the Roman Catholic Church. He often found his refuge in books and music provided by his father Abram who unfortunately passed away while Isaac was still eleven years old in 1987.

In 1989 he moved from Potchefstroom South Africa where he was staying with his aunt to Ga-Rankuwa, timeously getting involved with the Chiro Youth Movement of the Holy Cross Catholic Church, fully participating in drama, poetry reciting and music composition. He later moved to Cape Town to study Engineering and worked with the likes of Dizu Plaatjies, pioneer and leader of the globally acclaimed Amampondo Cultural Group, now lecturer at the University of Cape Town, among other South African greats most of who were music students then.

Together with his friend and talented artist Mzwakhe Hlatshwayo, now based in Sweden as a music teacher and producer, they formed Divine Crew. Intense exposure to live music resulted in the group viewed as being ahead of the local music scene then, which was highly reliant on computerised recording and performance. Other successful projects include writing music for the Smirnoff Sghubu Project in 1999 for the then popular friday South African television music program Studio Mix, with one song titled Sghubu featuring South African world renowned diva Judith Sephuma as lead vocalist.

He is currently involved with the African Hip Hop Movement as the recording and performing artist Lion i, also locally acclaimed as Stseketseke, which implies ancient cursive writing. Previous experiences include working for a design and water meter manufacturing company in Pretoria, fully embarking in Skills Development and Employment Equity policies as chairperson, union shop steward and public relations officer of Footsteps Youth Movement of St. Martin De Porres Catholic Church in Sunnyside, Pretoria.

Isaac aims to share his talent with other South African youth, the disabled and old aged and through embarking in both local and global cultural exchange programmes. His previous work of art on the local underground scene makes him a talented songwriter, rapper, freestyler and an african poet of note. His mission is to inspire talent, educate the youth, inspire the nation and to put across the message of dedication and right living through arts and culture.
