Get to know Captain 057

Captain 057

I recently caught up with Captain 057, real name Mpho Modise, who’s hit track ‘Go Away’ is causing havoc on the airwaves and was no.1 on 5FM’s Power Nights of Hip Hop with C-Live chart (July 09, 2012).

We at SAfrica Vibe are all about the common Free Stater (Don’t let the name fool you) so when we heard Captain was representing 057, we had to find out what we can expect from this Civil Engineer turned muso and what keeps him ticking.

My love for Hip Hop… Started in the golden era of hip hop mid 90’s initially just from listening to it & mimicking what I saw & then started writing my own material.

Bentey Records… Is both my management & record label I am signed to, alongside Pro’s Money First Entertainment

A truly great support structure… Is my greatest extravagance, it keeps me going

My CD player… Is currently playing PRO – Continua, Slaughterhouse – Debut LP, Sean Price – Monkey Barz, Joe Budden – Mood Muzik 4.5 and Skool of Hip Hop – The mixtape.

I am at peace… When I’m in my home town, Virginia. It’s definitely my reset button

My music… HD TV, and PS3 are some of the things I can’t go without

I am… Working on a collection of songs and hopefully an album will come out of it

My friends and family… Enjoy being in studio, I’m really fortunate to have friends & family who are all musically inclined

Happiness is… That which you build yourself, you tend to enjoy it a lot more.
