Auth3ntiC launches independent career with bold new album

Wilfred Bafana Mothwa also known as Auth3ntiC, is a South African rap/hip hop artist, record producer and entrepreneur from the town of Mamelodi in Pretoria. He has worked with artist’s like P Jay from Benchmarq and is finally coming out with his own music. His debut album is expected to uplift and promote talented unknown artists. 

The music producer has released an album titled “Do Your Own Thing,” a collaborative album for talented young rising musicians. 

“The album is purely inspired by me finally putting myself first. Hip Hop has never been about following rules, and this album translates that! featuring well renowned producer Side Effex,” he said.

Auth3ntiC told Gauteng News that this song is about fighting through life’s problems and running away from situations that don’t grow you as a person. The song got Auth3ntiC to collaborate with Lizz Kalo.

“This song Baleka (Run away) was inspired by the recent xenophobic attacks that happened in 2019. We came up with a song which is an anthem to change and a start to Africans working together, being together and helping each other,” Auth3ntiC said.

Born into a business orientated family, Auth3ntiC draws his inspiration and high acumen from his mother Alexandria Fundile Mothwa. His mother was a domestic worker and built a food catering empire, and his late father Simon Zondiwe Mothwa, a football player for Orlando Pirates FC. 

Auth3ntiC founded AMPlis records production in 2005 before completing high school, which led to him signing Mamelodi’s rising talented musicians. He worked on the music production and recording of his first official artist, Miz Brother, an urban contemporary hip hop artist.  

He has also worked with a Well-Renowned producer who has worked with Ifani and Mzekezeke and many more. This backdrop has contributed to his understanding of music and the business of it.For more information, contact today. Like Auth3ntiC on Facebook and follow on Twitter @Auth3ntiC_SA.
