Mr Sakitumi is from Cape Town, South Africa. On his days off he is also known as Sean Ou Tim.
An internationally performing musician, beat maker, and multi-instrumentalist, he has played in many prominent South African bands such as Lark, Goldfish, Freshly Ground, and Max Normal (with the artist now known as Ninja who eventually went on to form Die Antwoord).
He performs with Ableton Live, FX, and bass guitar, using Ms Pinky for both audio and visual scratching.
