Nothing makes one feel older than realising that the music they have enjoyed in their youth is turning two decades old. Think about all the music you enjoyed 15 years ago; don’t they sound like they were dropped yesterday? Today we are thrilled to announce that the princes of Kwaito music, Msawawa and Mzambiya bring us a new single titled iMoto Ka Shukela.
We fell in love with Msawawa and Mzambiya when they dropped their collaborative song, Wawungakanani back in 2001. The former child stars have not been silent since then; they have released music but failed to capture the nation. But now, iMoto Ka Shukela is looking to be their saving grace as they have managed to get us excited about what their next move is. Talent can’t be destroyed fam.
The Gqom influenced Kwaito song is a solid dance floor type of joint. The thumping baseline and screeching synchs keep the tune bouncy and current. Plus the hook is catchy AF. We have Solo Boys and O. Mlangeni to thank for that. They also threw in nostalgic lines to remind us who we are listening to.
The Gqom beat was a little distracting because we were expecting a little bit more Kwaito but that was just us. We can only hope that they will consider doing a few more songs together; joint Kwaito album anybody?
The song has not officially dropped but we’ll keep you updated as soon as it is available on digital platforms.
Peep the song below!
Fifi Cooper Going Back To Her Roots With New Album, Take Me Back
From the first lady to boss lady, it’s now time for the release of the rapper and singer’s sophomore album: Fifi Cooper is back with a brand new album titled Take Me Back.
This is one of the most anticipated albums of 2018 and is the first project from her record label, MoCooper Records. The Motswako rapper did not hold back at all this time with her breath-taking & versatile flows that are backed-up by melodic beats.
The 21 track album includes singles like Calling featuring Moozlie and Emoyeni featuring Thabsie just to name but a few. The buzzing new single Zwagala, which is the first featured single, is already creating a craze on the radio airwaves and is being touted as THE street anthem.
When asked why the album was titled Take Me Back, this is what she had to say:
“I named it Take Me Back because in it, I am going back to my roots of Motswako. I did different things in the past because I was not in control of my creativity but now that I am my own boss, I will stick to what I know best.”
Mooketsi then added: “I wanted the album to be released in August as my way of saying RIP to Mama Winnie [Mandela]. I appreciate her teachings and it is interesting that, women like me are still going through our own struggles,”
The album dropped today and is available for streaming and purchase on all major digital stores. Fans can also look forward to the Zwagala music video which should be dropping soon.
Will you be copping it?
