Hailing from Kagiso, Krugersdorp, George Modikwe, aka F3 Dipapa, has made incredible waves in the industry, and this is only just the beginning. Dipapa doesn’t come from a musical background, but his love for music has been with him since before he can remember.
We caught up with him at the ‘All You Need Is Piano 2‘ album launch in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
His great childhood memory was listening to Sunday love jams with his folks which grew his love for iconic artists like Fela Kuti.
Although not his genre, Dipapa is heavily inspired by Afrobeat’s which he believes gives his music more of an edge.
Dipapa has a long history in the industry, and we can confidently say that he truly made it on his own.
Having managed himself for a long time, he finally got his big break when he opened Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
He later met Mr JazziQ through a competition by Ricoffy, which led him to join Black is Brown Entertainment in 2022.
On this chat he opens up about being featured on Mr JazziQ’s latest project titled ‘All You Need Is Piano 2’ as well as his upcoming musical plans.
