I would like to sincerely thank EMENDY for putting in so much effort, hard work and dedication regarding the payments, training and administration of my studies.

I would especially like to thank Martin for believing in me, it means more than anything in the world to me and without the moral and financial support it would have taken me much more time to succeed in what I love most.

I have found the course extremely helpful and I’m sure of it that my odds are better now to become successful, significant towards making the world a better place, a better world. producer/musician and businessman overall.

I would also like to thank Lorenz, Dewalt, Nic, Emille, Patricia (administration) and everybody else who have helped me become better at my craft.

I am genuinely grateful for what you guys have done for me. I will continue to keep EMENDY’s name high and will represent EMENDY until the day that I leave this earth.

I am extremely proud to be a part of the college and cannot thank you enough, once again, thank you.

Articulate Artists are an independent Hip-Hop group from South Africa which was formed in early 2009 and consists of 3 members; Power Of Thought (emcee/producer), SafarI (emcee/producer/engineer) and DJ Sizzor Hands. Articulate Artists released their debut album “The WorkHorse Programme” in April 2010… The album was extremely well received nationally and even received a 4 Star rating in HYPE Magazine (Articulate Artists have featured in Hype Magazine on numerous occasions). Since the release of their debut project, Articulate Artists have been extremely busy with the self-marketing of their album, having performed at a number of Johannesburg’s Hip-Hop shows/festivals such as Jozi Fest 2012, Back to the City 2011 & 2012, Mzansi Hip Hop Mega Fest, Splash Jam, 1808, Babylon, Hip Mofunk, Cool Runnings & AFMP Sundays, just to name a few. These underground lyricists have also shared stages with the likes of Proverb, HHP, Jack Parow, Die Antwoord, Ben Sharpa, Driemanskap, Ewok, Last Days Fam, Smurf, R-Senic & independent legends Copywriter (USA), Eligh and Scarub (USA) and Mac Lethal (USA).

Articulate Artists have also worked with local Dj’s Niffty (DMC champion), CutKeylow and 2 x DMC champ The Cutt; so it is clear that these guys are purists of the art form. Articulate Artists have not only kept their feet in the sands locally but have also been expanding their skills & talent across the seas, working with artists and producers such as Empne (Greece), Stihopathis (Greece), Echs Incognito (Australia), Mr.Boomkat (Australia), Jimmi Riddlz (UK), & King Mike V (U.S.A).

Power Of Thought released his Solo Mixtape in 2012 entitled “Dope Joints for POT Heads Vol.1” Which received a 9/10 rating on Headpage.co.za. P.O.T and SafarI are also well known in the battle circuit, having battled some of S.A.s finest emcee’s on various stages, leagues and street corners. Most notably, battle venues such as Battleground, Back to the City 2010, Scrambles4Money, and the Art OF War battle league.

Articulate Artists have also appeared twice on Sabc 1’s Ziyakhipha and once on e-tv’s Hip-Hop show “ShizNiz” and on Soweto tv’s Just Music Hip-Hop. Articulate Artists pride themselves on creating original boom bap Hip-Hop which is rarely found these days…With lyrical skills which are highly content driven and extremely thought provoking, it’s safe to say Articulate Artists do it for the Hip-Hop culture and represent the raw elements that real Hip-Hop heads thrive on.

I started my journey into the wonderful world of music at the age of 14, but started my career two years later. The dream of becoming a good music producer was the main motivation to achieve the top of the charts one day. But talent without knowledge is like a car with few liters of gas, one day it stops. We have to learn every time if we want to be great at something. EMENDY Multimedia Institute was the best thing I could achieve in my life.

Every single lesson gave me a new perspective on how things should be done to achieve the golden sound. I am grateful for every day at EMENDY, not just because of the great lessons, but because they gave me the necessary tools and motivation so I could achieve my dream. Today I work with some of the greatest names in the Angolan industry and the higher the dream, the higher to dedication to achieve.
