A Maverick is independent and enjoys breaking the mould. Mavericks are visionaries who boldly go where no man has gone before; they are creative, influential, and enjoy the thrill of taking risks. It’s time to unleash your inner Maverick.
Aeronautica Militare is aligned to success. Partnering with the man, the Maverick, Khulani Morule AKA Khuli Chana (Yano) ticks that box. Chana’s name is synonymous with Motswako rap ‒ in fact, rated one of the best to perform the genre. It’s his flow and stage presence that have fans swooning. In 2021, the style master transitioned from Motswako rap to Amapiano with ease and is now known by the name Khuli Yano and is still dominating the SA music industry.
South Africa’s Own Maverick – Khuli Chana (Yano)
Khuli Chana grew up in Mmabatho, North West Province, and began rapping Motswako at an early age. He started his music career as part of the rap group Morafe before going solo. Khuli Chana rose to fame with the release of his massively successful album Motswakoriginator. The album features both Setswana and English. The sound and flavour is much that of Mahikeng, a small town in the North West Province.
At the 2014 South African Hip Hop Awards, Khuli Chana was nominated for Most Valuable Artist and won Video of the Year. Chana toured as an opening act for Kendrick Lamar and Drake in 2016, and at 39 years old, he has become an undeniable heavyweight in the South African music industry. The legend has even escaped death after a case of mistaken identity had members of the South African Police Force fire nine bullets into his car. Chana already has a few prominent branded partnerships under his belt including being an Absolut Vodka brand ambassador.
“Be the Voice of Grit, Energy and History!”
Aeronautica Militare proudly partnered with Khuli Chana, South Africa’s very own Maverick in its latest photoshoot revealing the latest seasonal collection. Inspired by the legendary Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, and in celebration of the latest Top Gun movie sequel – 36 years after flying to record highs at the box office. The shoot took place in an exclusive and unnamed private aeroplane hangar. Showcasing the bold, iconic pieces from the latest collection, Khuli Chana and the team felt inspired to “Be the voice of grit, energy and history!” just like Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. The exclusive collection is as always inspired by current trends and the 6th Win, boasting the classic insignia of the Italian Air Force.
