Abongiwe Peter better known as Cozmik is a 17 year old up and coming Hip-Hop recording artist hailing from Cape Town, South Africa.
Cozmik has always been pulled towards the music scene since being a fan of it at quite a young age. He wrote his first rap lyrics in grade 3 at the age of 9 years old for a school project. By the age of 12 he started recording his own music and performed it along with his friends at talent shows.
Currently at the age of 17, Cozmik teamed up with a Cape Town producer and recently released his first official single titled “Pusha Man” and along with it scored himself a music video with well-known Director & Cinematographer Fabian Vettiger who has worked with Aewon Wolf, Gemini Major, Locnville and Melanie C. The video was edited by one of South Africa‟s top Film Editors whose resume includes Cassper Nyovest, Riky Rick, Khuli Chana, K.O., Anatii, Nasty etc).
Shortly after the release of “Pusha Man”, Cozmik was chosen by GoodHope FM to be one of its “Finding The Hype” artists where the track made its radio debut.
Cozmik made his debut club performance in October 2016 at UNIK in Claremont, Cape Town.
As he continued to push his debut single „Pusha Man‟, he eventually received the support of Africa‟s premier Hip-Hop blog Slikour On Life who featured the track on their platform which is home to South Africa‟s major artists. Slikour On Life once again co-signed Cozmik after he released his music video for “Pusha Man” in early December.
January 2017 marked Cozmik‟s first major success for the New Year when his music video debuted on the #BTB (Bout To Blow) segment on TRACE Africa. This accomplishment made him the youngest Cape Town and possibly SA artist to achieve this. He was also one of the youngest if not the youngest artist on TRACE Africa at the time. Shortly after, he also landed his first ever newspaper feature with The Daily Voice and a few weeks later The Weekend Argus came calling.
March 2017 saw Cozmik perform at Smoove, an event that drew 1500 people which is Cozmik‟s biggest performance thus far.
Inspired by greats such as Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar, Cozmik’s main focus is to spread positive energy through his music and to inspire others to become greater beings.
He is currently working on his mixtape which is due for release this year.
