Mamillion's main objective is to entertain while dominating the kwaito scene.
Mamillion's recent debut CD, Phakama is filled with party songs, tracks inspired by his social struggles and a constant ambition of making his first R 1,000,000 through music. The album also includes the bonus track "Gatvol" that directly targets taxi drivers for their controversial behaviour.
