Alta is an R&B singer straight out of the home town of (in my opinion) the greatest beer in the world: Windhoek, Namibia. She has released a sultry number as a single to her upcoming album.
How Deep Is Your Love has got that bouncy and retro feel to it. Zesh Domingo did the things on the soundbed.
ShabZi Madallion also makes appears in the cut doing his best LL Charmer Boy impression one time.
This is definitely a song for a sexy time; for that 11pm text to “come through & chill”.

Last time we heard from Jonny Joburg, he was living it up there in the States. It is possible for one to be missing Africa while doing your thing over the Atlantic Ocean. Probably why he named his latest track after his hometown.
This explains the tribal drum elements on his latest single, City of Gold. The 4 on the floor beat has a familiar West African chant of “oshi baba, o-shi ba-ba” floating around the bridge. The light frantic keys are a nice touch to the Rhodes keyboard backed soundbed.
Gigi LaMayne then steps up & chops the beat like a chef in the kitchen as she muses on the trappings of the city with bright lights. …Read More
Joburg based urban poet, Mterry Da Rapper is on the hunt with Big Tee & Kyla Blac for whoever took his Lunch Money.
The synth-heavy trap soundbed, cooked up by Murphy Cubic, sounds like a typical “get that money” track but the concept behind Lunch Money is deeper than that. Let Mterry explain one time:

The song is about the political injustice currently occurring in South Africa. The lunch money being talked about are the missing billions being stolen from the government & it’s all money that is meant to build the nation & help people from all walks of life in South Africa to live a better life.
April was a very busy month for the culture and there were only so many platforms that captured the madness that went down during the 4th month of 2018. We thought to add our 2 cents on the April Madness through The Kulcha.
The concept of The Kulcha is simple: we play some tunes in the background and discuss the hot topics related to music, movies, social media, sports, politics and such in 45 minute sessions.…Read More
Zakwe is still not playing na labo Sebentin. This time, he brought along some of the best lyrical urban poets in South Africa for the Sebentin Remix.
The remix beat has some more tribal elements than the original version, cooked up by X-Wise Beats. Although that famous hook by Musiholiq remains. And it is still making people say: Quku quku kiki nqikinqi!
Zakwe starts by blasting all the bombaclots. Then Blaklez creeps up on the beat with a Spitori flow. HHP comes after with that Maftown flavour, Pro is on that Prodigal Son tip, Kwesta knocks on the beat like a Jehovah’s Witness & last but not least, Cassper Nyovest is on lyrical flex mode.…Read More
As soon as you hear the vocals that say: “It’s my hoooouse!”, you might mistake the latest ShabZi Madallion single to get visuals for a kwaito track. It’s My House is the second single off his For The People EP.
Shout out to Beats x Blass for flipping the kwaito sample into a new spacey trapped out version.
The video, directed by Nicholas Mills, has Shabzi posted up in different locations in his kasi of Soshanguve in the Capital City.
Check out It’s My House below:
Nigerian afrobeats star, Davido is in a celebratory mood that made him wanna give his baby Assurance.
His newest single comes just after he surprised his longtime girlfriend, Chioma with the keys to a brand new Porsche Cayenne as a birthday gift. I would have given my girlfriend an Uber voucher. Clearly, there are levels to this thing.
Anyway, the music video was shot a few weeks back while the DMW & 30 Billon Gang (and Chioma, of course) were on vacation in Barbados.
You can download Assurance here or you can watch the video below:
Sometimes, it’s good to quit while you are ahead. That was probably going through the mind of Vaal based rapper Cyrez. After having released the Correta EP, he has decided to hang up the mic. Why? Rather let Cyrez explain:
I spoke to my parents about it, they support my decision to quit music for a greater purpose. Life forced me to make a choice between two things and music is my huge sacrifice. The rest is my private life, I can’t share with everyone.
Cyrez will be remembered for his one man show (Colourful World mixtape launch), his singles Get Happy and Thandi 2.0 ft.…Read More
