In this week's SA Artist Spotlight, we're featuring Lakota Silva:

Lakota Silva, the pop queen on the South African scene. Born and bred in Cape Town, Lakota classifies herself as a “rap princess” and her music verifies this. Her funky sound and twisted lyrics come together to create the perfect blend of a funky-pop infusion. Her unique hair and wardrobe are all elements that make her live performances something that stands out. Amongst many of her successes, she has opened (alongside) Locnville as an opening act for Justin Bieber in 2013 and if you are looking for some of her piercing vocals you can find killing the game on her song ‘Do Re Mi’, which was awarded SA's #2 song in November 2014. Latoka is certainly a female ‘rap princess’ who never dulls her sign and her appearance, live performances and music all speak to this. Be sure to check out her Facebook and Instagram page for new music (which she promises to release soon).
