MTENDERE MANDOWA : TEEBS

When you start starring each and every one of the tracks on an album, I think it can be crowned as a keeper. California’s Mtendere Mandowa, more musically known as Teebs, can be recognised specifically by the mixed layering of his creative palette, a token theme within both his visual his art, and music production.   At the age of 26, Mtendere has grown from working as a singular teenage … Continue reading MTENDERE MANDOWA : TEEBS
