Mashoto Lucky Mokobane affectionately known as “Mash.O” was born in Lebowakgomo South Africa in 1992. His family relocated to Kempton Park when he was 8 which is where he discovered his passion for music. His first musical instrument was a toy piano received at the age of 10 from his late grandmother. Mash.O’s has an “afro tribal” ear influenced by the dominant drum sounds used in many of his tracks.
He studied Engineering graphic and design (EGD) and Civil Engineering at Rhodesfield Technical High school. His journey of producing music started when he got his first PC. He began experimenting with software-based musical applications producing demos that struggled to pull-through to major record labels.
