Khulane Morule (born August 27, 1982), better known by his stage name Khuli Chana, is a South African Motswako rapper.

Morule was born in the Mmabatho, North West Province and started rapping at a young age.[1] He was a member of a rap group called Morafe.[2] He then proceeded to go solo, after the rap group took a break from releasing music as a unit.[3]

Khuli Chana rose to fame after releasing his major successful album Motswakoriginator, which infuses both the Setswana and English languages. Motswako is a mixture of both languages and the sound and style of music originates from Mahikeng, a small town in the North West Province.

He has shared a stage with US rapper Drake, as an opening act.

Khuli Chana partnered with vodka brand Absolut as one of their ambassadors for the South Africa market.[4]

Khuli Chana was nearly killed when members of the South African police mistook him for a criminal and proceeded to fire nine bullets at his vehicle.[5][6]

Chana is considered one of the best hip hop artists in South Africa.[citation needed]
