Bio

THE WORLD MUST KNOW MANTIST. IN TERMS OF STATEMENTS OF INTENT, IT DOESN’T GET ANY SIMPLER THAN THAT. A graduate from one of the world top sound colleges (SAE College). A State finalist in Australian Poetry Slam, 2011. Selected for the Q Music Encouragement Award, 2009 and Urbane Award 2007 for best songwriting. Mantist emerged out of the dusts of the war-torn South Sudan, the horse-trading and spiritual chaos of nine years spent in refugee camps in Kenya and Uganda, to land on Australian shores as a wide-eyed teenager with dreams that couldn’t possibly be fulfilled. And yet that’s what he’s doing. Song by song, rhyme by rhyme, Mantist is becoming the hottest producer/performer/poet the world about to witness. With every production produced by the man himself, no wonder MANTISTIC PRODUCTIONS has been describes as "the sooner next big thing".
