The popular 3 piece musical Pop sensation, Muzart, have released their first single off forthcoming album, Facets, called Get Down.
Get Down debuted last week in Botswana on Yarona FM as well as locally on 5FM on #FreshAt5 with DJ Fresh that resulted in the song trending at rank 1 in the country on Twitter. Get Down has now been sampled to radio stations across the country and continent and has already been play listed by the likes of Metro FM. It is sure to be a summer hit!
“Get Down is the first single from our upcoming album, Facets, which we believe creates a beautiful transition from one album to the next. Get Down is a nostalgic tune that takes a journey down memory lane to music we grew up hearing, in taxis, at home on a Saturday morning or from our uncle’s tape player. We are celebrating the great music that came before us and inspired us. It’s a feel good song, one for the whole family! We believe music has the ability to capture moments; we hope that with the song people will think back to those special moments they had with music!” shares Muzart.
Get Down will be available on iTunes as of this Friday. Make sure to get your copy and look out for the music video coming soon!

“For the longest time I’ve been influenced by the West through hip hop, which is evident through the music I did with TKZee… I forgot the rich sonic heritage in Africa and Immortal Vol 3 takes inspiration from that. There’s a lot of tribal African rhythms and songs of celebration of Africa.” shares Kabelo Mabalane.
The first single off Immortal Vol 3 was Matimba which is a perfect example of the tone of the album. This celebratory song reminds us all why we should be proud to be African. The music video was shot in Mozambique.
Kabelo Mabalane’s new single off Immortal Vol 3 is called Free This Land. The song is inspired by Jay William’s 80s hit called Sweat. The song is a “war cry” for us to realise that the potential of the country can only be achieved if we all put our heads together. The newly sampled single has already been picked up by the likes of YFM locally and Yarona FM in Botswana.
Kabelo Mabalane, affectionately known by his fans as Bouga Luv, is an inspirational brand that has been in the music industry for the past 19 years. He has made a notable mark on the South African music landscape as a living Kwaito legend, and with 10 SAMA award wins under his belt, Kabelo Mabalane’s talent speaks for itself and is evident in Immortal Vol 3.

Amidst much hooting, cheering and hilarity at Teatro Montecasino this past weekend, eight South African comics walked away with one of the most prestigious award the local comedy industry has to offer – a Waldo statuette. Directed by funny man, Alan Committee, the show was a slick blend of satire, music, sketch and, of course, stand-up comedy by all the winners who were present.
Marc Lottering, Tamara Dey, Tracey-Lee Olivier and many others provided entertainment at the comedy awards. Many agree it was only a matter of time until much-loved new comic, Yaaseen Barnes, walked away with a Waldo, while a previous recipient in the Newcomer category, Schalk Bezuidenhout continues to impress, taking home the award for Intermediate comic.
The audience shared in a touching moment when Ndumiso Lindi handed Joe Mafela his Lifetime Achiever award, and to hear the great man’s humility and love for his craft as he recalled stories from decades ago was heartwarming.
The crowd went postal at the news that the first ever “Non- English Award” was bestowed on Mashabela Galane, a trail-blazer in the vernacular comedy world. More cheers ensued for Chris Steenkamp who was finally recognised for his wonderful writing and received the Comic’s Pen award.

D’Banj’s recent happy birthday message to Adama Indimi has confused a few people.
Although it could have been a simple message, fans went wild when the Nigerian superstar ended it off by professing his love for her.
What is the problem here? Well, back in July, the Kokomaster and our very own Bonang Matheba walked the MTV Africa Music Awards red carpet together. They also got tongues wagging after they kissed when the singer, who is celebrating a decade in music, won an award.
This obviously fueled dating rumours, with some wondering if the kiss was a confirmation of their love?
There is a twist, though! On Wednesday, the Oliver Twist hitmaker took to Instagram to share a picture of Adama and a beautiful birthday message. According to Nigerian gossip sites, the two have been dating on and off for a while.
Adama is the daughter of Nigerian billionaire Alhaji Mohammed Indimi.
This was followed by a string of comments on the singer’s page. Some fans feel that D’Banj is disrespecting Bonang, while others are wondering if Bonang is still in the picture at all.
One fan’s comment read: “Wow this is sad.. But respect @bonang_m for keeping her calm.”
Another added: “You guys need to chill. The persons involved are quiet and you’re here crying more than the bereaved.”
Following all this, Bonang’s ex, DJ Euphonik, took to Twitter to leave two pictures. His fans responded!
Or maybe he’s on about something completely unrelated? Yho! What a mess.
