Durban dancer and musician, TDK Macassette has certainly been making her mark in 2018. Fresh off her vibrant single, Domoroza, which had its fair share of controversy, she is back with new music. The new single, titled Zama features Okmalumkoolkat and was produced by his label mates, Rudeboyz.
Zama is not a bad follow up to Domoroza because it keeps the same pace and style of the song. This is what we have come to expect from TDK, even from her previous features on songs such as iWalk Ye Para and Goosheshe. But it is worth noting that it sounds a lot like her breakthrough hit single in terms of the beat of the song as well as some of the phrases she uses.
There is no doubt that this high energy Gqom single is summer ready and with Smart Mampara on the song, this is definitely a worthy single. Okmalumkoolkat brings a certain level of swag and coolness to this song. It is no longer strange to hear him on a Gqom beat but he still sounds refreshing!
The song will be available for purchase on all major digital stores soon!
Kwaito Rapper Mgaga Releases His Debut Solo Single Titled All The Way
Mgaga goes all in with his Kwaito love song titled All The Way
Kwaito artists have always been making love songs; I guess there is nothing sexier than a thug expressing his love for you in Kasi lingo. Imagine Brown Dash’s Vum Vum or Trompies when they sang Sweety Lavo. These songs carried such a beatiful message. Today, talented Kwaito rapper, Mgaga, is keeping this tradition on by releasing his very own Kwaito love song titled All The Way. This one features August Child and Sizwe Magwaza.
At an early age Mgaga was moved from Alexandra township to Tembisa and then to Edenvale. Growing up with a heavy Hip Hop and Kwaito influence, Mgaga started writing rap songs and freestyle battling. He later discovered that he expresses himself best and relates to his audience in vernac utilizing the Kwaito flow.
He began his music career in 2014 as part of a group called PAQ performing in popular clubs around South Africa. Formally known as Radi-AK, Mgaga is now taking on the world as a solo act with authentic Kwaito music.
All The Way is Mgaga’s first solo single
All The Way is Mgaga’s first solo single after the re-branding from formally being called Radi-AK to going by Mgaga, a name he was popularly known by since before he pursued music professionally. The word “Mgaga” refers to an AK47 because the first letters of his birth name “Akhona” are “AK”, which is his childhood name.
All The Way is such a breath of fresh air in that it carried this concentrated essence of Kwaito music without trying too hard. Instead, Mgaga effortlessly flows on this Kwaito and House hybrid beat and he does the most. He raps about a woman he loves and how he wants to take their love and relationship the whole way. August Child and Sizwe Magwaza do the most on the hook certifying All The Way as a summer hit!
