Matlosana”Klerksdorp”: His unstoppable, his focused, and he hails from the south of the city Maglera Doe Boy is the heart beat of the hip hop scene in Klerksdorp, and from time to time when we think nothing is happening, he subliminally hits us with a move that reminds everyone not to sleep on him.
One such move is that he just did a song with Maftown’s legendary Motswakolista HHP “Hip Hop Pantsula” Doe Boy announced the news on his whatsapp status in which he was having a conversation with Jay Kayembe who is Frank Casino’s brand manager telling him about the feature, and later on that day HHP confirmed it on Instagram the name of the track is #WorkHard and he has featured Maglera Doe Boy, Fifi Cooper, Profresherkt, Bfbmw and Iam.Stat. This feature has been eminent. In 2016 HHP posted a video of him jamming to Doe Boy’s hit Brolly on Instagram and gave a shout out to MDB.
Jabba@HipHopPantsula also took to twitter and said ! What?! Nah! Niggar, you’re Motswako’s life line. Everyone please meet MDB from Klerksdorp. This boy maybe Motswako’s redeemer….i trust what i’ve heard so far. Save this tweet, Thank me later.
In response #2Player @MagleraDoeBoy said! The day I’m on a @HipHopPantsula song, I can stop rapping.
His rap career dates back more than a decade ago, at an early age of only 9 years old. MDB has become a household name in Klerksdorp and as things stand South Africa is steadily catching up to his creativity and own style of Trap Music which is called “Strata” the phenomenal style has been inspired by the experiences of him growing up in the gang infested township of Kanana and overcoming it through hip hop.
MDB is affectionately known as TK in his hometown, The rapper is definitely not the one you should overlook he packs a muscle and in the arena of Rap/ Hip-Hop Music Culture there are Kings and Queens, and it can not be argued that in Matlosana “Klerksdorp” Maglera Doe Boy is sitting firmly as the King of Klerksdorp’s hip-hop scene.

One of his biggest achievements is that he features on Three songs on Khuli Chana’s One Source album. he has worked with PH Raw, Towdee Mac, K-N9NE, and Reason to name but a few.
In 2017 he lost three of the five members of O.N.D.E a rap crew consisting of rappers, photography, graphic design and music production. Doe boy and his confidant Thabang “Dee Flex” Diswane are carrying the baton of making sure the spirits of Keaobaka Monash Mokoena, Mojileon Murkem and Dessy Blunts Phoyana live on through music.
