Wu Tang documentary finds South African representation with Siya Metane

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Wu Tang Clan’s classic album Wu Tang Forever, Certified Africa released a global mini-documentary. The Wu-Niverse mini-documentary showcases reflections on the impact of Wu-Tang’s music globally. South Africa finds representation through Siya Metane, commonly known as Slikour from Skwatta Kamp.

Wu-Tang Clan unleashed their history-making GRAMMY Award-nominated double-disc opus, Wu-Tang Forever, and changed the face of hip-hop forever. South Africa was no exception.

“Wu-Tang Clan played a huge part in my life. The similarities of my own brothers in Skwatta Kamp with a global group like the Wu-Tang was uncanny. It felt like we would also be destined for success if we stuck together as a unit” says Siya Metane, CEO of SlikourOnLife.

He is one of only six superfans from around the world who speak about their reflections of the album. The episodes are part of a greater Wu Tang Clan celebration with episodes featuring original Clan members mini interviews. They also have artists like A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg weighing in with their experiences of the music.

The Wu-Niverse SA Episode, which is Episode 6 of the mini-doccie, launched on July, 15, 2022. The evening prior, on Thursday 14 July, Certified Africa hosted an exclusive pre-screen of the Wu Tang mini-documentary – a day ahead of its global release. They conducted a panel discussion with some of South Africa’s Hip-Hop’s heavyweights, including Sabelo Mkhabelo, editor of Hype Magazine. It focused on the significance of Wu-Tang’s influence on the local industry.
