Bongo Maffin’s Comeback Single Is Here! [LISTEN]

The wait is over! Bongo Maffin is back with their first single in 13 years.

Published

on

BONGO MAFFIN

Bongo Maffin delighted fans when they performed together for the first time in aeons earlier this year.

The iconic four’s much celebrated on stage reunion took place at the inaugural One Source Live shindig in March.

And after months of mounting anticipation for their promised single, the group on Friday ended a 13-year hiatus and unleashed a brand new scorcher! The legendary South African group make a triumphant return with a funky mid-tempo single called Harare.

Bongo MaFFIN

Rooted in the Afrobeat/soul influences, Harare is as much about the Zimbabwean capital city as it is about one’s state of mind. The band interprets Harare from its Shona origins which means ha ba robale (in Setswana) or they don’t sleep in English.

‘This is long overdue. The fans have been demanding it for years and years,’ remarks Stoan. ‘As artists, we had different psychological approaches to Harare. The natives coming from the countryside we amazed by this city that doesn’t sleep with the lights constantly on. But also, this is a metaphor for the life of an artist. It has an Afro-futuristic vibe as we reconnect our roots and the future.’

The song is released as a joint venture between Bongo Maffin Music and Kalawa Jazmee.

Your thoughts on this groovy summer joint?

Azana Debuts Her First Project INGOMA

Azana dropped her debut album INGOMA this past weekend

Published

on

Azana

In new music, Azana released her debut album INGOMA this past weekend, securing the number #1 spot in the country on Apple Music’s Pop Chart, and charted across all genres on Apple Music Top 100 in South Africa, eSwatini and Botswana.

Azana’s INGOMA also features on notable playlists such as Africa Rising, Mzansi Soul, Mzansi House and Mzansi Hits on Apple Music and on Made in South Africa, Oya Dance, House Nation, Phenomenal Woman, New Music Friday and African Heat on Spotify.

“The response since the release of the full project has been phenomenal. It’s great to see all the work put into it paying off and having to see people appreciating the music,” shares Azana.

With INGOMA, the Chesterville, Durban musician moves to the beat of her own as she wades through Neo-Soul, Afro-Pop and House with ease. 2020 saw “Your Love” and “Ngize Ngifike” cast the initial spell that brought Mzansi to its knees, each song climbing the ranks in charts and cherished music collections.

INGOMA begins with the prayer-like “Okhokho” on which she draws her ancestors ever nearer, the genre-bending “Egoli” tells the story of her journey to Johannesburg to fulfil her destiny, while “Bafazi” reminds the women of this world of their innate power.

Azana

With isiZulu lyrics that speak to love and loss as well as ambition and might, Azana’s is a voice that echoes through the lives of African women of all forms – both women of cities and women of soil feel her presence in their lives, while her deeply melanated skin and ever-changing style challenge colourism and nullify dated standards of beauty. Proudly proclaiming “I Am Queen”, Azana’s riches lie within; intangible and unending.

Largely influenced by black musicians both past and present with a penchant for activism, pride and intuitive songwriting, Azana’s standout release with Sun El-Musician entitled “Uhuru” is evident of this. Released on Mandela Day, you can now watch the Uhuru music video on YouTube here:

The soulful vocalist was formerly affiliated with CashTime Life and has now branched out into a new solo deal with the global music group. Masandi’s days as a member of the Niche Fam have certainly prepared him well for the limelight.

Mfusi’s talents also lie on the small screen, with some of his credits from roles on Mzansi Magic’s Isibaya and his latest showing on The River. The actor took to his social media platform to share the good news with his fans.

Tiwa Savage Drops New Single ‘Dangerous Love’

Tiwa Savage drops new Afrobeats joint!

Published

on

Tiwa Savage

Nigerian-born singer, songwriter and fashion icon Tiwa Savage – widely regarded as the ‘Queen of Afrobeats’ – releases her brand new single,“Dangerous Love,” via Motown Records. The song is the first official single taken from her long-awaited fourth studio album ‘CELIA’, aptly named after her mother. 

Produced by Cracker Mallo and recorded in Tiwa’s home city of Lagos, Nigeria, “Dangerous Love” is the perfect blend of R&B and Afrobeats. With a powerful, enchanting chorus and silky ‘afro’ beat throughout, the mid-tempo record is a representation of Tiwa’s musical growth and preview to her upcoming project.

“Dangerous Love is such a vibe! It’s a song that is basically about a girl who is dipping in and out of a ‘relationship’ with a guy that really doesn’t deserve her time or attention. She knows that he is bad for her but she gambling with her heart anyway.” Says Tiwa Savage. “I feel like every girl and maybe guys too can relate to this one.

Savage’s fearlessness in combining various genres has paid off, earning her abundance of award wins and recognitions. In 2018 she made history by becoming the first female to win the MTV European Award for ‘Best African Act’. She has since earned four Channel O Music Video Awards nominations, five World Music Award nominations, MTV Africa Music, BET & MOBO Award nominations and many more.

In 2019, Tiwa signed an exclusive recording contract with Universal Records and in September released her first global single titled ’49-99’ under Motown Records. In May, 2020, Tiwa Savage graced the cover of Billboard Magazine’s first issue devoted entirely to Africa alongside Afrobeat superstars Davido and Mr Eazi.
