He’s loud, fun, young at heart and an all round bundle of energy! We are talking about none other than Smash Afrika, radio personality on youth radio station YFM. This self confessed “stupid awesome” somebody is the host of fresh and funky breakfast show “Smash and Grab” weekdays from 6-9 am on YFM.
Born and bred in Bloemfontein, Afrika Mdutyulwa better know to his massive following as Smash Afrika, the young man has clearly worked his way up and he is proving to be a force to be reckoned with. Anybody who has listened to his show can attest to that.
His radio career began at the University of the Free State’s campus radio station ‘Kovsie FM’, where he moved up the ranks to eventually becoming the host of the weekend drive time shows. He has also hosted the breakfast show as well as a rock show at Voice Of Wits (VOW).
He is described as an ambitious, focused and extremely energetic young man who understands the value of hard work. He has worked with Tholi B and co hosted the drive time show, En Route 6, in 2013. In 2015, he hosted his own show “Point Of Order” every weekday from 03:00- 06:00.
You can catch him every week day morning, from 6-9 am on YFM, 99.2.
TRESOR and AKA collaborate on 80’s disco inspired song
TRESOR and AKA make a new song titled Electric Night.
Electric Night continues on from the reminiscent theme on the upcoming Nostalgia album set to be released by TRESOR on 25 January 2019.
The 13 track album also features some of the biggest names in the game such as multi-award winning trio The Soil; Kenyan Pop Group Sauti Sol; contemporary singer Msaki; Kwaito rapper Kwesta; renowned DRC singer Lokua Kanza; Afro Pop Group Mafikizolo, pop trio Beatenberg and Supermega AKA – who now joins TRESOR for the new single Electric Night.
I am excited to once again share the magic AKA and I have made with this electrifying song. When I approached AKA for the collab, he immediately said ‘Let’s do it!’ and then we both started crafting what we believed would be a time lapsing song that reminded us and our fans of what we grew up vibin’ to at 80’s disco’s and parties. We had so much fun making this song and the video and I can’t wait for everyone to experience Electric Night
Fans can officially pre order the album here.
