the biography of the uncrowned king
Sean Gambanou born on the 7th of February 2001 in Rosettenville, a suburb situated in the south of Johannesburg is a South African born-Congolese rapper, songwriter and record producer. During his childhood, Dituaes always had that fighting spirit as he was always competitive no matter who stood before him. At the age of five, he took an interest in music as he first sang along to church songs and his childhood idol, the late Michael Jackson. As he grew up, he also expressed his love for drawing and sports with dreams of being a musician or sports star.
Dituaes started rapping at the age of 12. This is a passion that started when he along with his friends would come together and rap at school whenever the teacher was not in the classroom. His father was (and still is) against him doing music or sports as a profession. When he crossed over to High school, he met a friend who enjoyed writing songs and through him, he retained the love he once had for music. The next year, he decided that he wanted to do music again without his parents knowing and began to fill up his unused school books with raps although he struggled to find the perfect rap name as well as recording his songs with only his phone, headsets and his PC which he was hardly pleased with. In October 2020, Sean suffered from an identity crisis and that affected his state of mind. Since he felt he was being misunderstood, he decided to put the pen down. However, the "retirement" did not last long as he came back better than ever and his first move was dropping 2 freestyles. According to his peers, he's been to in sync with his music, reportedly working on a mixtape. Moving towards the end of 2021, Dituaes then started taking an interest in engineering his own music. This was due to the fact that studio time was rare and he didn't want to pay for something he could've done by himself. He dropped 1 final extended play signing off the end of 1 era - The Pandemic era. An era consisting of freestyles he did using instrumentals from notible songs.
MUSIC - So far, he has made over 13 projects unreleased projects. These projects including five mixtapes and eight Extended plays EP. In 2018, he released his first official single on Audiomack but had mixed reviews as the mastering overshadowed the light within the track. He took a little break from recording to produce instrumentals for his upcoming project. A year later , Dituaes finally released his official debut project titled ''Take no L's'', a project which at that time hailed as his best work. He then made sporadic releases he wasn't at all pleased with. Music was never something he would do in his free time because he would constantly make up excuses to go to the studio. There were a lot of complications as he was also doing his matric that very same year not forgetting lockdown regulations which made it even harder for him to drop anything.
Influences, style, and rapping technique - Although Dituaes has listened to everything and everyone, incorporating it in his art, He has cited several artists as influencial to his rapping style, including Nasty C, Eminem, Biggie, Migos, Big Sean, Michael Jackson, A-Reece, Kendrick Lamar, John Cena, Cassper Nyovest and Poodieville as his biggest influences.
CURRENTLY... In as much as he has taken time out, it will not be in vain as he looks to bring out his best work yet, work that contains his signature scent.
