BIOGRAPHY OF WAL T
Wal T''s real name is Walter Mogane and he was born on 23 April 1976. He attended Sefika Lower Primary school in Molapo, and then attended Isaacson Higher Primary in Rockville. He then attended St Stithians College in Randburg & completed his Matric in 1994. He attended with the likes of Kabelo Mabalane, Tokollo Tshabalala & Zwai Bala & was in the same boarding house as them. The boarding house name was Mount Stephens. Wal T was in the same house choir with the above 3 TKZee members & the boarding house won all the house choir competitions during the 5 years of the high school. Wal T has 2 brothers & 2 sisters.
Wal T started writing music & built the Hunting Records Music Label in 1998 & has written over 90 songs to date. 17 of these songs appear on his debut Hip Hop album, "So many things, so little time", which was released on 20 March 2004.
Hunting Records was formally registered in April 2003 as a Close Corporation. It''s called Hunting Records because we are continuously "hunting" for new ideas to improve our music & to make our music label bigger. Wal T is the leader of Hunting Records. In addition to rapping, Wal T also produces his music, writes lyrics, designs the Hunting Records web site, keeps accounting records for Hunting Records CC & manages the music & business affairs at Hunting - just to name a few.
On our label so far, there are 6 artists: myself, Wal T, D.O.C. (Disciples of Christ - a Hip Hop Gospel trio), Fikile, Nondumiso, Big Mike & MCT. The next artist to release an album is D.O.C.
Although we are dominantly a Hip Hop Music Label, we also add elements of Gospel, Hip Hop Kwaito, Rave, Dance, Reggae & R and B in our songs.
What makes Hunting Records unique is that we are the first independent music label in Molapo, Soweto. Wal T is the first Hip Hop artist, from an independent Hip Hop label, from Molapo. What makes Wal T different from other artists is the way he makes his beats, the way he writes his lyrics & the energy that he shows on stage when he performs.
What Wal T has done for Hunting Records so far is to hand copies of the album to music shops such as House of Sounds & Music Fiesta (both in Carlton Centre, Johannesburg), The Reliable Music Warehouse (Jeppestown) & Kohinoor head office (Market street, Johannesburg). He has also handed CDs at Y-FM, Metro FM, Jozi FM & Comuta FM. The music shops & the Comuta FM are currently playing the CD for the public to hear.
Also, Wal T has arranged for an advertisement near Mapipe hardware on Molapo. The advertisement shows the Hunting Records logo & the contact details. We have also designed our online shop at https://www.tradebit.com.
One of our CD has been handed to Skwatta Kamp''s Lebo & Siyabonga - for them to hear our music & help us with exposure. Wal T has also arranged to hand one CD to his high school friend, Kabelo (aka Bouga Luv).
We have managed to arrange for the production of 1000 units of the album ourselves. We have recorded all the songs ourselves at our mini studio in Molapo. The album is out & available and can be bought online at https://www.tradebit.com, or from the Music Fiesta, or from the House of Sounds. The lyrics were typed by Wal T & are available for FREE downloading from our web site.
We have already performed at the Oasis Pub (in Molapo, in March 2004), at the Elkah community hall (Rockville, in April 2004) & at the Tropicana Club in Fraser street, Johannesburg on 29 May. Then we performed at Russells, Highgate in June this year. In August, we performed at 2 venues: at KwaMhlanga, KwaNdebele (where Alaska was also performing) & at the market theatre.
Wal T is currently arranging for posters to be placed at hair salons, train stations, bus stops & school fences to boost our marketing. Also, he''s arranging for brochures that will be placed at internet cafes, music & non-music shops, night clubs & community halls. Advertising in the print media is also to be done in the near future.
