PLATFORM Documentaries: Okmalumkoolkat

We are proud to announce the first ever PLATFORM documentary.

We spent a day in Cape Town with Simiso Zwane, better known as Okmalumkoolkat, a man who is at the vanguard of the nationally burgeoning hip hop scene and whose recent EP Holy Oxygen is currently sitting at number 4 on the iTunes chart. The video aims to give a sense of what a normal day is like for the man – but, to use his own words, he “hasn’t had a normal day in two years”. He chats about: his struggle to overcome his phobia of work; his desire for success; and how fish and chips just isn’t his thing.

Thank you to all of the people who helped out on the making of this: the naasFILMS team, the amazing Cape Town World Music Festival, Beanstalk, Gaartjie, Red Bull Studios Cape Town and Hectic Nine-9.
