Destruction Boyz Prove Gqom Really Is The Future With New Album

Destruction Boyz’s studio album – Gqom Is The Future – is all the rage right now



Destruction Boyz Gqom Is The Future

They’ve been dropping some of the most celebrated Gqom hits in quick succession for a minute now, so the commercial success of Destruction Boyz’s album, Gqom Is The Future, is not much of a surprise.

The album features a few bangers to which many morals have been lost in the last few months, so many that it was a no-brainer for the famed Gqom champions to put out a cohesive album for every single party from now until further notice.


The Durban duo – who’ve produced hits such as Uzophuza Amanzi, Shut Up And Groove and Babes Wodumo’s Wololo – released a full body of work consisting of some of their best works and a whole lot of new banging stuff that many have declared the ultimate sound for the looming festive.

Gqom Is The Future debuted atop the iTunes chart upon release, and has continued to be a trending conversation on social media.

Those who are familiar with the popular Durban sound will know that there is a whole sub-culture around it. And while the occasional lyrics tend to use local Durban slang and references that may not make much sense to everyone, the language of the broken, rhythmic kicks seem to have really taken over in 2017.

While Wololo is known as the track that introduced Gqom to the mainstream market, Gqom Is The Future is the album that seals its prominence.

J Cole Is Ready To Leave His Comfort Zone

J Cole is known for being somewhat introverted – almost always eschewing the very public display that comes attached with a life in show business.

While most of his contemporaries must keep feeding the insatiable system of relevance that is seen as the most effective vehicle to bankability, Cole has gone opposite route.

His last three #1 albums were without collaborations, and his fans have revelled at how the work has continued to achieve impressive commercial success without having the need to parlay someone else’s star power.

On the latest issue of GQ Magazine, the rapper is definitely chuffed about this little impressive feat, but he admits that “it’s getting embarrassing.”

He’s also been able to keep dropping new projects with little to not promotional buzz – which makes him perhaps the only rapper on his floor who can still count on artistic enigma.

Although J Cole has been able to thrive on the periphery of overexposed culture to maintain his privacy like no other, 2019 might mark a shift in his approach. The 34 rapper tells GQ that he’s now willing, more than ever, to be more open about the ways he navigates fame.


Tell tale signs of the new openness to embrace a a bit of the spotlight started with the release of his Middle Child, which became the musician’s first stand alone single in more than 5 years.

TELLAMAN’s Debut Album, God Decides, Has Arrived

Tellaman has premiered his debut album – God Decides



Tellaman God Decides

Last week, we had the privilege of attending Tellaman’s album listening session for God Decides, which took place at his musical home merely hours before the album premiered.

The preview of the looming body of work was a showcase of what sounded like a mellow record from one who’s created the kind of anticipation only a handful of artists can, particularly in the age of streaming. The rules have changed – Kanye set precedence for a 7 track album not long ago. Singles are the new destination and, it seems, their lifespan is now down to just about a month.

Give or take.

The excitement around the soulful vocalist’s first studio album is, therefore, quite telling of the unique space he takes up in the South African soundscape, where we see names replace each other’s relevance with quick succession.


His has been a steady journey; he was certainly in a different space when we had a conversation with him two years ago.

Tellaman God Decides

The place he is now, though, informs the not just the work itself, but the many talents behind it.

“For the first time, I wasn’t trying to prove anything. I wasn’t trying to prove that I’m the best producer or writer. I just wanted to bring this idea to life and make sure that it’s exactly how I’d imagined it; if it sounds simple and cheesy or complicated and complex, that’s because I wanted it to sound that way.”

The inspiration behind the album is being in a relationship and trying to make it as a musician, two important aspects of life to balance, and something Tellamanhas yet to figure out. God Decides is about Tellaman meeting a girl he believes he loves and trying to make it as a musician whilst trying to make both work and his relationship work, but she fails to understand, and the industry gets the best of Tellaman.


Based on his religious background, Tellaman titled the album God Decides.

“I was taught that I can only do the best I can and let God take care of the rest. I chose ‘God Decides’ as the title of my first album because I have always felt like somehow, I am not fully in control of everything that is happening in my life. I chose the name because I believe I would not be where I am in my life if God didn’t allow it and I wouldn’t have gone through things I write about if God didn’t allow it.”

Featuring Tellaman’s signature melodies, smooth vocals with instrumental highlights, the story of the album is the bigger picture, with each song being a compiled episode that forms the bigger picture. But most importantly Tellaman brings a simplicity in his music in which a young or old person can find something to relate to. Fans can look forward to a new insight into Tellaman’s life; a lot of flaws, love and hope in the form of the music from his debut offering.

“If you want to put a specific style to the album, you can call it ‘Hip Hop/RnB’, but I like to call it good music and just leave it there. This is my life from 2014 until the day I stopped recording it. My mistakes, my good and bad moments in love. I hope what I have gone through will help someone do or choose better than me.”

Look out for our full album review soon.

Boity on Friday delighted fans when she availed her hotly anticipated second single.

Entitled Bakae, the scorching track comes hot on the heels of the up and coming rapper’s debut single, Wuz Dat, which  was first availed for public consumption in August, 2018.

Bakae arrives as debates on whether or not the 28 year old media personality would be able to sustain the hype she was able to build with Wuz Dat, the collaborative project with Nasty C that has amassed over 700 000 views on YouTube, peaked online.


This wouldn’t be the first time Boity had much to prove ahead of premiering music.

A successful acting and entertainment broadcast career notwithstanding, the multi-hyphenate star’s first single not only debuted atop the iTunes chart within hours of release, but continued to help Boity mark her own territory as the country’s hottest female Hip Hop Act.


Bakae builds on this momentum to find Boity showcasing the lyrical gravitas and flawless flow we never knew she had.
