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?

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?
