5 South African Songs You Should Be Listening To Right Now

A list of songs to vibe to!

As we edge closer to the end of the year towards the blissful festive season, QuenchSA‘s hottest songs list will start reflecting the songs that will likely be carrying us into 2020.

This week, Kwesta thrilled fans with a surprise release featuring American rapper, Rich Homie Quan.

Run It Up premiered on Friday with visuals which found Rich Homie Quan immerse himself with the rich texture of the South African township culture.

MFR Souls unleashed their first full body of work, which has already spawned a song every dance-floor needs for an amplified frenzy.

Cassper Nyovest released a music video with Frank Casino for Who Got The Block, a single from his 2018 album, Short and Sweet.

Here’s the list of 10 South African Songs you should be vibing to!


There’s no shred of doubt that Amapiano have completely disrupted the South African music landscape! The producers for Amapiano banged out anthems faster than any of the established artists could.

A triumphant successor to the now flatlining Gqom era, which saw our authentic sound and street dance culture make waves internationally, this dance genre and its subculture delivered a slew of new artists, a chunk who have dominated local music charts for the better part of the year.

At the genesis of Amapiano is production duo MFR Souls, who have been engineering amapiano numbers long before the mainstream culture caught on.  That list of originators includes the JazziDisciples and Kabza De Small, to name but a few. This year, these names got their turn in the zeitgeist.

Love You Tonight, the first single from Mfr Souls’new released nine-track EP, The Beginning, is being touted as a strong contender for the song of the year title. Featuring the enchanting vocals of Sha Sha, arguably the industry’s best performing new female artist, the song is hella catchy.


Every year, Kwesta has made it tradition to surprise fans with a big hit. And on Friday, the rapper took things up a notch when he liberated a new song, along with a music video, for Run It Up.

The song, in which he hooks up with an American muso for the first time since causing a stir by hosting Rick Ross in the township, finds Kwesta collaborating for the first time with the Atlanta native.

And unlike some of his peers, who often bolster such high powered masterstrokes with explosive reveals, Kwesta kept this feature under wraps until just days releasing to its premiere.

The visuals for the joint garnered high praises from fans for its authentic highlight of South African life both in the city and in the township. With this move, the Diamond selling rapper takes another aim at using his platform to present and elevate the township to the world’s imagination.

Kwesta hasn’t rapped this much in a lead single since skyrocketing through the commercial success of Ngud.

Here he delivers a smooth flow of lush verses over a laid back beat as Rich Homie Quan hovers a simmering vocal over the rich 808, giving the song an international urban finish.


JazziDisciples make expensive music.

As one of the originators who championed the Amapiano genre, we expected them to scale up and drop a big one, and Ilanga is a smashing entry.

The song, which richly showcases the luxurious side of Amapiano, is a perfect display of how pianos are in fact at the centre of the country’s most popular sound currently. They play with it differently.

The duo, who have been announced as part of the AFROPUNK Joburg 2019 line-up, are known for their delightful sets, as well as keeping a rather low profile while constantly liberating respectable dance works that have continued to please lovers of Deep House music fans, as well as the Amapiano subculture.


We’d thought Bucie’s departure from the music scene will definitely leave a huge ice block.

It did, following the release of her last official album Rebirth in 2018. Fortunately for us all, the ‘Princess of House Music’ treated fans to a beautiful collaboration with Kwesta in February this year.

The love song recently got its music video, tossing it back at the forefront of the scene to peak its slow rise.

If all Bucie ever wanted was to write and sing beautiful songs that connect her with her audience at a deeper level, without all the trappings of fame, this song proves she might be mastering that.

Thando Lwethu celebrates the longevity of love that stands the test of time, outlasting the pessimistic outlook of detractors and pacing past the challenges of life to emerge as victorious love. It’s an ode.


At this point, these three can certainly announce they’ve decided to establish an official music group and no one would complain. Throw in Samthing Soweto, and we have the working formula!

After all, their collective catalogue of recent drops accounts for quite a number of the highest charting Top 20 songs on iTunes and Spotify, as well as on the radio.

The Zim born Sha Sha is the freshest of all these voices, and hers is a beautiful one! This being her breakout hit single in which she is the main attraction, Tender Love is a beautiful introduction of good things to come from the singer.

A post shared by Shining Star (@elaineofficial_) on

Elaine’s EP, Elements has drawn praise from all corners of the globe.

METRO FM Reshuffle 2020 – Who’s In & Who’s Out?

Metro FM freshens up the shows with a reshuffle of the radio personalities in 2020.



Relebogile Mabotja

The start of April for METRO FM radio listeners came with a few changes after the public broadcaster made a some alterations to the roster. In an attempt to stay on top of the current, some radio jocks were swapped around to keep the freshness in the studio. The one casualty of the reshuffle was award-winning radio personality Relebogile Mabotja. She was initially roped into the station back in April 2019 to form part of the The Fresh Breakfast Show, before DJ Fresh was fired in July.

Here’s a breakdown of how things shake up for the weekday and weekend slots:

  • The Morning Flava remains unchanged with host Mo Flava (Moeti Tsiki) and the MOP team, continuing their set every weekday from 05:00 to 09:00.
  • The Bridge with Dineo Ranaka, Lerato Kganyago and Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung from 09:00 to 12:00 remains unchanged as well.
  • Lunch with Tomas & Pearl is still going from strength to strength with Thomas and Pearl between 12:00 and 15:00.
  • The Kings Suite fills the vacant post with Lindi Sirame.

Weekends will see a new twist to how the graveyard shift was hosted in the past. METRO FM will introduce two developmental slots aimed at discovering new and young talent. These are new weekend programmes from 02:00 -04:00 (The Lift) and 04:00 – 06:00 (Club with Mat Elle), hosted by Rorisang Thandekiso and Nthabeleng Matela respectively.

  • The union formed on Absolute Hip-Hop by Lootlove (Luthando Shosha) and DJ Speedsta (Lesego Nkayiseng) will be missed. Lootie joins the weekend breakfast, ‘THE WKNDR’ with MoG (Mpho Madise), leaving Speedsta to host the now two-hour-long show by his lonesome.
  • The WKNDR also welcomes Chante Jantjies to the fold, whose currently a news anchor on SABC TV.
  • Fan favourite, Cruise Control will gain an additional hour, extending the show from 13:00 – 16:00.
  • I Believe’ with Oskido (Oscar Mdlongwa) follows after, airing from 16:00-19:00.
  • The Sunday Love Movement continues to reign supreme from 09:00 to 21:00.
  • Sacred Space with Thami Ngubeni and Khaya Mthethwa is also unchanged, closing the week with the Urban Jazz Experience with Nothemba Madumo.
