Who is Flash Ikumkani by the way?
Flash Ikumkani, real name Hlumile Mangoloti, is a Hip Hop artist known for his unique vocals. Among this, he is also known for his great ability to rap in his home language, Isixhosa, while mixing it with English. Making the music that Flash makes is an extension of his identity as a Xhosa man, but also as a well-learned rapper. There is something distinctly fresh about Flash. He is effectively lending his voice to making his native tongue cool and this is not the watered down version of his language, but it is the raw, and authentic version that is not highlighted in the mainstream.
Nominated for the 2021 South African Hip Hop Award for the remix of his breakout single, Mhluzi Remix. His single ‘Mhluzi‘ reached number 1 spot on the Stir Up’s Local Top 5 chart on 5FM; The song also reached number 3 on Metro FM’s Absolute 5 chart. The song was sitting at number 3 on TruFM’s Top 30 Chart, and reached number 1 on Cape Town TV’s Hype It Up Top 5 Chart. The song earned him number 3 on MTY Base’s Freshman Top 5 playlist.
It is safe to say that Falsh has done extremely well for himself, and there’s no sign of him slowing down anytime soon. The new single is one that is highly anticipated, and we trust you would love it too. Listen below;
