Athenkosi Zintle Mgoqo, known as Athi in the music scene is an R&B, pop and electro dance pop artist who has an edgy sound that is both soulful and contemporary. She has recently dropped the video for her highly anticipated debut single titled Pretty BumBum featuring multi-award winning Nigerian dance-hall music sensation, Patoranking.
Athi is not new in the music industry; she has been steadily carving her own style and sound since 2013 when she began writing her own music. In 2013 she began to write her own music, her first original track was Wall of Steel and 2014 she wrote the song Lost which received positive reviews from producers and fellow up and coming musicians.
She took a break from music in 2015 and now she has returned to the recording studio in 2016 where she recorded the track Pretty Bum Bum, signed under Dutch Dreams Records. The Afro Beat Dancehall infused track is quite fresh and relevant at the moment since the prominence of this type of sound is big right now.
The video for this track was shot in what looks like an underground dancehall club. The visuals are draped in smoke and different hues from blue to yellow and green. There are plenty of half naked men and women dancing sensually to the beat.
This video is not suitable for work (NSFW), not because it is explicit but because it is sensual and bold. This is the type of song that can flourish in the club scene just based on it’s mood and the energetic beat.
It is already on high rotation already in Nigerian on both radio and TV channels and radio rotation in South Africa steadily picking up with already 20 radio stations having play listed the track. After the release of Pretty BumBum, Athi has shown that she is definitely one of the upcoming artists to lookout for.
