Music Friday: Music Updates

  1. Toya Delazy is back to present to us a new album titled ‘Afrorave Vol’, which dropped this morning. In their own words, Toya said “For 6 years everyone kept asking ‘Where is Toya DeLazy?’. I had to keep the faith and trust the process and it’s brought me to this point.” Congratulations and big ups to Latoya Buthelezi on this new body of work!

2. @Lasandra_SA’s latest single, titled We’ll be ok, produced by @TyraQeed also dropped this morning. Also check out her latest visually appealing music video for ‘Play No Games,’ which has a smooth touch of Amapiano. It was released on 21 May 2021. I cannot get over her 2018 single ‘Umakoti’ – a great wedding song that should be on a new bride’s playlist!

3. Big Xhosa and iFani released a single titled ‘Ikuku endala’ (not for persons under the age of 18) on 11 June 2021. The song received so much support – nearly reaching 100K views on YouTube. The visuals of the song came out on Youth Day and has over 30K views on YouTube.

4. DJ Olwee aka Ms Party released their debut single ‘KingsXQueens’ with Lady Du and Josiah De Disciple on 11 June 2021. They celebrated the release of their single last Friday evening at The Omni in Braamfontein! The song received so much support especially from the LGBTQIA+ community.

5. Keenan Meyer finally release their single ‘Komani’ (misspelt online as ‘Konami’) and the pre-order for their upcoming debut album, The Alchemy of Living on 10 June 2021. Your jazz Sundays will never be the same again.

6. The amazing and musically gifted group, 047 and Vusi Nova released their single ‘Akasemhle’ on 5 June 2021. Vusi Nongxa never disappoints and will take you on a musical journey that will leave you mesmerised.

7. Pilani Bubu released her latest single titled ‘Awuyazi’ on 27 May 2021 and it is worth your listen! How amazing is the artwork of the single? I am looking forward to her upcoming album.
