Following their 2021’s partnership with Universal Music Africa, the SKHANDAWORLD collective released a compilation album titled, Welcome To The Planet which featured a star-studded cast including the likes of AKA, Tshego, Cassper Nyovest and Nadia Nakai. This year, continuing on the momentum they garnered since the inception of the collective in 2020, they have released a mini-documentary of the same name as the compilation, which chronicles the start and rise of the SKHANDAWORLD universe.
The 20 minute mini-documentary was directed by Daniel Mavu and produced by Kuda Jemba. It features Teargas alumni, Ma-E, who started his mainstream music career alongside K.O. Also telling his story and how he became a part of SKHANDAWORLD is their first signee Loki, followed by Roiii, DJ Mr X and the last to be enlisted to the fold, Just Bheki.
The documentary also gives a chance to some ardent SKHANDAWORLD fans, who give their honest opinion on how the planet has been moving and how they would like to assist the team. The Dreamteam makes a cameo in the planet’s defence and this includes Thee Gobbz who is SKHANDAWORLD’s label manager and sound engineer, Themba Molongoana who does their PR and Marketing and Tsholofelo Maramedi alongside K.O who wholistically bring the conceptual record label to life and handle the day to day of its running.
This visual piece also takes us through the making of their well-received compilation album and highlights some of the structures that make SKHANDAWORLD in all its forms.
