As’phelelanga, meaning ‘we are not complete’, is a powerful song about the struggle in South Africa.

The song is a rework of the famous struggle song Asiphelenanga that mentions most of the legends who passed away but were significant contributors to the South African music industry. Some names here include Brenda Fassie and Lucky Dube.
This exceptional song is the new South African anthem, dominating the South African airwaves and doing the rounds everywhere else.

2. Banomoya – Prince KAybe ft Busiswa
DJ and singer, Prince Kaybee, has proven without a doubt that he is a hit maker when it comes to club bangers with the single Banomoya featuring poet and singer Busiswa and vocalist TNS. Banomoya has been winning for weeks on the countdown chart due to its addictive beats and well thought out lyrics. Its success is no surprise especially when the never disappointing queen Busiswa was featured. Not to forget the unbeatable TNS who adds value to the song by concluding it with impressive vocals. Banomoya has finally silenced DJ Kaybee’s haters and qualified him to the top after his former controversial ‘Club Controller’ song that saw him accused of music stealing.
3. Vur Vai – Kwesta
The quick and positive response to the song Vur Vai has put it on top of the charts. As usual, Kwesta, the king of hits, since 2015, has delivered the song that will entertain his fans and keep him as the king of summer for another year. The song has a hip-hop feel, and it is also inclined toward Kwaito with its bass, airy pads, and the mid-tempo rhythm. Kwesta raps about this heavy drinker who will not leave the club no matter how late it gets. Vur Vai is yet another anthem you do not want to miss out on, so make sure you watch the video YouTube.
