PHFat Biography


PHFAT’s unprecedented rise in the South African Music Industry is as much about his warm commercial appeal as it is about his
cold honest introspection. Even though a string of charting radio hits
such as “Lights Out” and “The Whip” have solidified his position as a
South African commercial
music heavyweight, it is PHFAT’s darker and
less radio-friendly singles that stitch together his carefully
constructed live shows with an inimitable, primal energy that keeps fans
coming back.

PHFAT’s dark electronic hip hop beats are woven
seamlessly with intricate raps, melodic hooks, charactered interludes
and crowd chants that culminate in cathartic frenzies. Although known
in particular for his explosive festival performances, He is as
comfortable performing to a crowd of twenty as he is to a crowd of
twenty thousand, and equally at home sharing a lineup with your
favourite local punk band as he is with your favourite international pop


In fact, when the internationals are in town, PHFAT is
a go to for the lineups and he has performed alongside (amongst others)
Public Enemy, MGMT, Milky Chance, Casey Veggies, The Cat Empire and
Rudimental as well as having headlined just about every major festival
in South Africa (including Rocking the Daisies, Oppikoppi, Sonar, In The
City, and more)

Whilst his latest single “The Whip” dances
around 5FM’s top 30, he is hard at work on his next release. PHFAT’s
future has never looked brighter.
