It’s pronounced ‘Ok Sharp’. 

Manthe Ribane is a performance wunderkind who has been making a name for herself across the creative spectrum, working in film, music, dance and performance art. She toured the arenas of the world as part of the Die Antwoord live show. As a creative catalyst, Manthe has been a key member in some of South Africa’s contemporary movements, from the fashion/art squadron, The Smarteez back in 2006, to the dance/performance-art group V.I.N.T.A.G.E who won Best Dance Crew at the South African HipHop Awards 2014.
Her latest initiative, Dear Ribane, is a collaboration with her siblings Tegebo and Kay Kay, as seen her travel to London, Paris and Geneva to engage in multimedia projects. She was recently awarded a ‘Young Inspiration’ award for her work by Red Bull South Africa. She works highly engaged with youth and female empowerment. 

Okzharp and Manthe came together to work on the film Ghost Diamond (info below). But this blossomed into a deeper creative collaboration. They have recorded music, written stories and made other artworks together.
