5 NEW Mzansi Songs You Should Be Listening To!

And when people zol…




When Minister Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma explained the Lockdown Level 4 restrictions, she could have never known that her explanation on why use of marijuana was not ideal during the pandemic would go viral.

And now there’s a song, it’s called Zol and it’s #1 on iTunes! Capitalising off the hot moment, the music producer has everyone, including the Minister, asking about him.


The K1 God made a triumphant return to the scene with two brand new bangers from his looming third studio album, 2 Skeif. There’s The Finesse with Riky Rick laying down a guest verse in between the song’s catchy hook. Njandini, though, is that timely nod to classic Kwaito that we didn’t know we needed.


Despite the much publicised strife with his former record label Ambitiouz Entertainment, Emtee has navigated his way back into the mainstream zeitgeist. The rapper last week unleashed an ode to the concrete jungle that is the city of Joburg, which he lauds for having built his character through the school of hard knocks.

The song shot to the top of iTunes chart and received massive traction from the rapper’s fans, who are on a mission to ensure he succeeds as an indie artist. After all, not many Ambitiouz alumni have managed to thrive beyond their heated departures from the stable.


Admittedly, the song has been out for almost five months but hear us out. First of all the Lockdown has frozen time so many recent releases have really taken time to get the traction they deserve. Secondly, Vigro is on a gradual rise, his songs will still take a hot minute to peak and, number 3, his viral set on the Lockdown House Party on Channel O brought his bops to the forefront.

Featuring Nokwazi’s powerful vocals, Ngeke is one a slew of banging numbers from the producer’s 2019 album, Baby Boy III. The song is fire and deserves the visuals to give it the mileage it deserves.


The countrywide Lockdown has meant that we’ve collectively gone almost months without groove, and still counting. But summer WILL come and the good times will roll in like nothing ever happened.

This banging amapiano instrumental is a good reminder than fun days are still ahead of us. The song has all the trappings of a fire amapiano street anthem, and make for a good workout song for those who want to get in shape ahead of the looming summer of 2020.

Let’s repeat that, summer will come again.

Inside the Star-Studded Season 2 Teaser for Young, Famous & African

Look at the material!




Young and Famous Netflix season 2

Today, Netflix released the official teaser for the second season of the hit unscripted reality series, Young, Famous & African.

This season sees the return of Africa’s most famous and fabulous, as they embrace life and love on the richest square mile on the continent. This time,  however, a few new faces promise to make their mark in Africa’s most elite group.

Enter Bonang Matheba, South Africa’s entertainment industry darling whose presence certainly ruffles a few feathers;  Fantana, Ghanaian-American rapper and all-round superstar who quickly makes her mark on the group and Luis Munana from Namibia, former Big Brother Africa contestant and entrepreneur extraordinaire who brings the heat from the onset. 

The all-star cast of season one returns to face a lot of unanswered questions like what happened between Diamond Platnumz, Andile Ncube and Zari Hassan after the chance encounters between the trio in Diamond’s home,  and what is the status of everyone’s friendships after many arguments, loads of drama, and a pot stir or two from Khanyi Mbau and Nadia Nakai.  

Also worth looking out for is the appearance of model and socialite Sebabatso Mothibi, as well as the supermodel and actress, Rosette Ncwana, both of whom share a relationship history with Andile.

Given the drama and tension from the previous season, how does this play into the existing dynamic on the show?

Season two of Young, Famous & African launches only on Netflix on 19 May 2023 worldwide.

After suffering a number of production delays that spanned years, and that one unfortunate canning of the lost season, the Real Housewives of Johannesburg will be making a comeback on 19 May, 20:30 on 1Magic.

As Quench previously reported, it looks like glam Queen Mpho Mops will be a no-show for the looming season. Hers was an explosive departure, which followed the damning allegations of infidelity she faced at the season 2 reunion.

Fans will, however, be delighted to hear that Lethabo ‘LeJoy’ Mathabo and Lebo ‘Jojo’ Mokoena will be returning as seasoned gold-carrying full-time cast members in season 3. The two look to continue where they left off in 2019.

Among other pressing charges, Lebo might have to explain the alleged giant plastic cake at her wedding to Johannesburg businessman Lebo Gunguluza, from whom she is now divorced. Viewers will likely get front-row seats into her new life.

LeJoy might have to spill on what happened on that one fateful night at the Durban July.

… Or not. Based on the cast reveal, the returning girlies might have to clock in.

There are fresh faces on the cast, which will likely shift the dynamics and overall direction of the popular franchise.

Mamus Koka, Marelli Bentley, Nicole Watson and Thobekile Mdlalose will all be making their debuts as the new line-up.

The viral sensation is running up the numbers with her autumn release.




Within 7 business days of its splashy arrival, Uncle Waffles’ sophomore tape, ‘Asylum’, has reached gold status.

‘Asylum’ is Uncle Waffles’ sophomore tape.

The 7-track project, which contains the blockbuster viral sensation ‘yahyuppiyah, shipped over 12 500 units in its first week. The official single’s delayed landing is likely to have helped the EP to run up impressive numbers.

Ms. Zwane recruited over 17 collaborators for the project.

After all, the song has been the darling of Tik Tok challenges around the world, many of which relied on the audio snippet being circulated without an official release.

Spanning just over 38 minutes in duration, the EP plays up to the disc jockey’s reputation for banging out addictive hooks with massive social media appeal. Working with 17 collaborators, Waffles confidently delivers her own take on Amapiano’s increasingly fluid soundscape.

The project arrives as the 23-year-old takes her tour to the US, where she’s covering venues in several states. This past weekend, Uncle Waffles made her debut at Coachella.
