Kryptonite is an Artist from Johannesburg. He started writing music when he was in grade 8 because one of his classmate encouraged him to write a young 16 bars for a class assignment and he wrote something even though it wasn’t something amazing it was the start of something. In 2007 he started hosting rap battles on a social media platform that was rather popular at that time and he took part in some of those battles and that was where he met both VinDe’soul and Fizzay. He later joined a group with Jubsta, K-west, Majic and two other artist but as a manager, because he was still trying to find himself as an artist. In grade 11 him and his friend/Producer wrote a song for their science project and performed it in front of their classmates, which was later put up for display during the school’s open day. In 2011 after gathering the necessary recording equipment and enough instrumentals, Kryptonite started recording most of his materials but most of those materials were never released. In 2012 he started working on Alpha Jay’s project as a feature and assisting with the recording process which was then released later that year. Having worked with Jubsta and K-west during 2013, Kryptonite wanted to started a business for creatives and he contacted Jubsta and a few others about starting something and luckily Jubsta had also thought about starting something like that and he already had ideas of who they could ask to join the movement and they got VinDe’Soul, Fizzay, Alkeih, Mulalo and K-west together and they all started working towards a common goal and that was the beginning of Retro Tribe Entertainment which has grown over the past year and will continue growing. Kryptonite has been working with Kuti, who is his friend and mentor, on their joint Projects. Kryptonite also makes beat under the name XVK (pronounced: 15K) which is short for 15Kryptonite which happens to be his twitter name. his started making beats in 2010 after getting a beat making software but he didn’t really put in a lot of time at first because of athletics, hockey, cricket and other sports but after leaving high school and getting his laptop he started working on beats and in 2013 he worked on a couple of beats with Jubsta and K-west and in 2014 he also started working on more beats with a friend that he has known since primary school (Com-One) and Kuti for his upcoming projects.
