When Makilla received an anonymous call he didn’t expect Tate Buti’s voice to be at the end of the line let alone being asked to feature him on a song.
The moment was so surreal that Makilla thought he was actually being pranked until he recognised that it was indeed Tate Buti’s voice. When the surreal moment became real, Tate Buti then asked Makilla to feature him on a song but there was one problem…Makilla was in the north while Tate Buti was in Windhoek.
“I thought I had actually passed up an opportunity to be on a song with the legendary Tate Buti because I was in the north but to my surprise, he said he will wait for me and I must call him when I am back in Windhoek. I was super excited,” Makilla told unwrap.online.
So why was Tate Buti very keen to work with an upcoming artist? “Tate Buti said he heard my verse on a song on D-Kandjafa’s album and said he immediately wanted to work with me.”
Fast forward the days, Makilla arrived in Windhoek and he was quickly ushered into a studio where producer Glo was waiting with a beat, then Tushikwetwe by Tate Buti featuring Makilla was birthed.
If that wasn’t enough, Tate Buti then decided to make it as track number one to set the tone of his previous album called Ochargera.
Makilla also confirmed to Unwrap that he will be releasing his second studio album in August titled “I am not your mate.”
“As a rapper, you are supposed to have bragging rights. Many people have been comparing me to a lot of individuals but as the title of the album suggests, I am not at the same level as some of these people I am being compared to. The aim is to occupy my own position,” he said.
Makilla said he is looking at having 14 songs on his album while sounding out Tate Buti as a potential artist to also feature on the project.
Contrary to a media article, Makilla said he is still under the UGU music label.
