ABOUT ME

MANTIST HAS COME A LONG WAY FROM HOME AND THROUGH A DIFFICULT JOURNEY HAS BECOME AN ACCOMPLISHED MUSIC PRODUCER, HIP HOP & SPOKEN WORD ARTIST & ENTREPRENEUR.

BEGINNINGS

Torn from his South Sudan home at the age of four due to warfare, Mantist and his family
His three brothers and single mother were forced to spend nine years at Ugandan and Kakuma refugee camps in less than ideal conditions.

If I have to describe, I can describe life in a refugee camp in 5 words, a daily fight to survive” Mantist says. “I remembered my entire grade one to 3 classroom was under a tree sitting on rocks that we carried ourselves” December 9 , 2004 , They landed on Australia shore under humanitarian visa. “When we first got here, I knew no one. I had no computer skills. I only knew basic English with an accent that no one could understand” Mantist says. “I used to get so frustrated that I had to spell what I mean on a piece of paper coz nobody understand me”. He proclaimed! “In my computer class, I was always the slowest kid. I remembered in my computer class, a white kid asked me one time. “man, why are you so slow?” “I was as slow as a snail.”

WHAT FANS ARE SAYING ABOUT ME

“The energy in the tunes are really powerful. The energy and love for music really came through in the melody and beat and rhythm. I had a lot of fun hearing the words at the same time, it touches me deeply. The accent add a uniqueness to it.”
