EVENING CLASSIC TUNE: Brenda Fassie - Istraight Lendaba
Powerful 1993 song from the late and legendary Brenda Fassie, a song about a woman who knows what she wants, or doesn’t want rather, and holds on to her right to refuse a man’s advances.
Correct me if I’m wrong, please.
ON REPEAT: DJ Ganyani ft FB - Xigubu
FB’s singing style in this song almost had me thinking Busiswa was responsible for the vocals in this track but nevertheless, between this awesome music video and the addictive refrain, this track once again proves that DJ Ganyani is one of the best SA house DJs out there.
Driemanskap - Camagu (South Africa)
Amongst the best in Hip Hop. Amongst the best in African Hip Hop. Amongst the best in Xhosa Hip Hop.
Jolinkomo -Miriam Makeba
Missing Mama Africa.
Zola - Mdlwembe
This was the jam when I was in Durban at the time. The video is amazing.
The late great Jabu Khanyile was a national treasure. Before afro-pop was even a thing, this singer and guitarist was mesmerising South Africans and international audiences alike.It was 1993 so I was a kid. What did I know about love. Anyway, I always liked the song, in spite of the fact that I never liked the video. So, imagine what a treat it was to watch another national musical treasure, Vusi Mahlasela, play Mmalo-We with his band at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown last week?! Well, it was.
Official MAFIKIZOLO ft Uhuru KHONA
Tune of the year for me. South Africa are moving! Cheese and Bread this tune is doper!
Thandiswa - Ibokwe
