The title of KG‘s third single is an instant indicator of his role as a socially, politically charged advocate and artist. The South African born, Australian raised rapper has been making waves with his first two singles ‘All Black’ and ‘Forgive Them’. ‘Mabo, Martin, Mandela’ storms out of the gate with a pounding, energetic beat and powerful lyrics about recognising important historical social leaders in the black community.
KG has said that the track is a “tribute to three of my favourite black leaders in history. I created the song to educate people on who they are and get an emotion of pride from the black community as well as a reaction from people of all races. In the current climate and fight for equality worldwide, it’s important that we learn from the past”
