The South African house DJ Aero Manyelo made us a list of his favourite music videos from South Africa. It is really shaped by the South African house, called kwaito, which is currently ruling the townships.
Artist: Aero Manyelo & Qhizzo
Track: Bum Jive
Being part of the producers on this song made me feel like I was also born in the 60’s, I really like the Kwaito flow and the chorus is just super amazing.
Artist: Mash O
Track: The Village
Young talent will always be available in South African dance scene, but only few of them will be unique and always try something new, that’s Mash O for you.

One of my all time mentors. They really know how to touch my heart when they start composing music. I’ve been following them since 2008.

When we talk about South African best song writer, producer, etc., we are talking about Spoek Mathambo. I was so surprised when I heard this song, Spoek can really surprise you in different ways.

Last but not least, this video shows you how I live my life somedays after coming back from a gig at around 6 am, where sleeping will be just wasting your time. This video was shot when I came back from a gig. I came back around 6:30 am and our director PJ was already waiting at my house. He told me, that there’s no time to sleep on earth.
