We are not ones to speculate but did Busiswa just drop a diss song directed at an up and coming female Gqom artist?
Busiswa is known for her unique delivery and diction making her head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to female vocalists. I mean she was once a spoken word artist right? So when we heard her throw well crafted shots, we were not surprised at how well each punch line landed.
The song seems to be directed at a “fake trick” who is trying to claim the spot all to herself. She then says that Babes Wodumo is already popular with the masses: “uBabes Wodumo bayamazi so wena ufun’ukwenzani?”.
The rest of the lines had us thinking that the shots were directed at TDK Macassette as both she and Babes had a song with the same name titled Domoroza. And the above line had us thinking that maybe Busiswa is calling TDK out for “mimicking” Babes Wodumo.
Nuz Queen is the topic of Busiswa’s new diss track
But when she made reference to Nuz Queen’s latest hit single, Laze Lavuka iDimoni Lami Bo we sat back and listened closely. This line: “Calling yourself a queen, what you is is a trick” had us convinced that she’s indeed referring to Nuz Queen. And what made this even more clear to us is that Busiswa’s freestyle uses the same beat as Ed Harris and Sdudla Somdantso’s Gagashe (Laze Lavuka iDimoni Lami Bo).
Word on the street is that Nuz Queen stole her hit song, word for word, from Ed Harris, and even went on to shoot a music video for it. Could this be Busiswa defending Ed Harris’ honour and calling out Nuz Queen?
Nuz Queen has responded on Instagram mentioning that she finds it amusing that Busiswa went ahead and wrote an entire song dedicated to her. She wrote: “…it’s still pretty admirable that Busiswa took time and wrote lyrics about me and calling me a THIEF and yet she is a grown artist for who have survived with left overs to mention from gobisiqolo remix…”
Peep the song below and tell us what you think!

AKA Chats Platinum Plaques & Redefining What Accolades Mean To Him
We recently caught up with the Supa Mega, AKA who celebrated a huge milestone last week. The multi talented rapper and businessman hosted an intimate gathering to receive his several plaques for the outstanding work he did on his album, Touch My Blood.
Supa Mega has been on a winning streak
Supa Mega has been on a winning streak since 2016 with him releasing his joint project with Anatii which included several music videos. He had also been on his Supa Mega Tour and when that ended came the Touch My blood tour. This saw the rapper hard at work so it’s understandable that he is a little burnt out.
“I’m tired. Not physically tired, I’m just more emotionally tired, spiritually tired, mentally tired but it’s okay because we did what we came to do. I poured my heart and soul into the album and people really could feel that”, he expresses. And the results have paid off because the accolades and the recognition he has received since this album was released has been the most he has received since he began his career.
On how he is redefining what accolades mean to him
He shared some insights on how he has remained relevant for as long as he had. He touched on authenticity as one of the key things that artists have to uphold to stay winning.
“Just make what you need to make and put it out there. People recognize and appreciate authenticity. Just be authentic, be original and be sincere and heartfelt,” he says.
It’s been a while since AKA has submitted for any awards and he mentioned that he is considered it since he has the number one selling album in the country. But he questioned the motive to get involved in the awards when he has already won the hearts of many South Africans. The platinum plaque is proof of that.
“Isn’t the award to be the highest played artist? Isn’t the award to be the most booked artist? Isn’t the award to have people f*ck with your music?”.
These are very important questions and no doubt something that artists on the come up can question about the product they put out. Well done Supa Mega.
