Amantonbazane is a song by Johannesburg based artist Riky Rick, the newest musician on the Motif Records books. The record features longtime friend and collaborator Okmalumkoolkat. The catchy chorus is something that Okmalumkoolkat had been chanting since 2010 in studio sessions so when they decided to make this record it was a natural option for both artists. Riky Rick produced the fusion beat himself after being inspired by early Kwaito groups. The song is a new age take on a loved but neglected sound that continues to rock South Africans everywhere.
