    Chris Saunders, Okzharp & Manthe Ribane

    Okzharp and Manthe Ribane is producer Okzharp, vocalist, artist and dancer Manthe

    Ribane. Working closely with photographer and filmmaker, Chris Saunders on this project, they all hail from South Africa, where Manthe still resides. Okzharp lives in the London where he is a DJ and producer, initially cutting his teeth in LV, who were one of the first acts to sign to Hyperdub. Manthe has been at the forefront of South Africa’s cutting edge fashion art and dance for over a decade, and Chris had worked with LV, making promo videos focussed on South Africa’s dance and fashion sub-cultures with the artists they collaborated with for their ‘Sebenza’ album. When Okzharp left LV, he spoke to Chris about an idea for a film, and was introduced to Manthe, who was then a dancer and choreographer for Die Antwoord as a possible lead. They hit it off, and upon hearing Manthe singing to herself, they started collaborating musically, releasing two well – received EP’s on Hyperdub, recorded in Joburg and London respectively. At the same time as the success of the group, Manthe’s profile blossomed in her home country, creating art and performance. Most recently she featured on the cover of

    South African Elle magazine, and has been building up the ‘Dear Ribane’ production company she runs with her brother and sister.
