The Major League DJ’s have seemingly found their niche. The pair has recently made waves by paying tribute to the music we used to enjoy in our youth. This began with uThando which borrowed the lyrics and melody from Boom Shaka’s massive hit, Lerato.
This time around, they played around with music from celebrated Pitori DJ and producer, Mujava. They feature up and coming artist, Focalistic.
This track finds Focalistic paying tribute to one of Pretoria’s biggest exports, DJ Mujava, before he celebrates life through music. Unlike Mujava’s hits from yesteryear, 19 Tobesta is surprisingly chilled and laid back thanks to Gemini Major.
Focalistic is rapping phrases and words from that time as well as borrowing some from our favourite Kwaito tracks. He brings a level of Pitori swag that’s been missing in the industry.
The video for 19 Tobestsa is also a surprise as the gents take us straight to China Town. The video is shot entirely on location at what looks like a Chinese restaurant. We see them donned in kimonos, carrying chop sticks and even see the translations in Chinese looking characters all throughout the song. Even the mami in the video is of the Asian persuasion.
Morale Phala directed the video and the quality is insane but we have to ask, what inspired these visuals?

NEW: Ganja Beatz- Night & Day Ft. Sjava, Sho Madjozi & Lady Zamar
Music producer, Ganja Beatz drops his star studded collabo song alongside Sjava, Sho Madjozi and Lady Zamar. It sounds weird right? Well the joint is titled Night & Day and it is an entire mood.
Night &Day is a strange track to be honest and it was difficult to get my head around it. The whole song seems disjointed and sort of separated into 3 different moods and atmospheres.
First we have Sjava who brings his raw and almost unfiltered truth packed in a skilful 16. It’s always refreshing Sjava on a wave that is not necessarily on that Afro-Trap tip. He always surprises me with his flow and subject matter.
The beat sort of breaks and we get a glimpse of what could be a hook, although this song doesn’t seem like it has a hook or some sort of chorus. Sho Madjozi does the most on it. Lady Zamar does a splendid job on this track and brings a dope level of international appeal. I honestly see Lady Zamar doing more than just dance music, she would also fair well in soul and RnB music.
Night & Day helps to show us a completely different side to the artists than what we would have seen otherwise. And the title and cover art illustrate this.
Ganja Beatz are a collective of super talented and dedicated producers who have gifted us some of the world class music over the last few years. This year alone they have worked with both established and up and coming artists including Cassper Nyovest, J Molley, youngsta CPT and Rouge to name but a few. Night & Day is just the beginning as we are in full swing of the last quarter of the year!
The single is available for purchase on all major digital stores.
