Khuli Chana’s #MONEY single debuted on YFM last week and is his official radio and video single for the upcoming festive season.

#MONEY was inspired by Khuli Chana’s favourite episode of the Martin Lawrence series as a teenager, where in the episode Martin Lawrence owed someone money and when asked for it his response was: “I got your money but I ain’t giving it to ya!” This line now forms the hook in Khuli Chana’s #MONEY track which goes: “I GOT SOME MONEY, BUT AIN’T GIVING IT TO YA!”

Khuli Chana’s playful and humorous side

Not many people know of Khuli Chana’s playful and humorous side, and with all the tension, and acrimony in the hip hop game currently, Khuli Chana felt that is was a good time to lighten the prevailing atmosphere by showing people this side of him. In so doing it is his hope that he injects some much needed fun to the hip hop game especially as we enter the festive season!

On why he decided to put out a single titled #MONEY now, Khuli Chana shares: “I’ve made money, I’ve lost money, I’ve been scammed, I’ve learnt that money can mess up relationships. At this point in my life, I felt I wanted to make lemonade out of lemon, and what better way than to do it by bringing it back to the music.”

NoLie Single

Khuli Chana’s #MONEY single follows his highly successful #NoLie single, which is currently playlisted in over 13 countries and charting in in over 11 countries across the continent. It has enjoyed no 1’s in SA, Nigeria, Ghana, Zambia, Kenya and the UK to name a few. Watch Khuli Chana’s #NoLie ft Patoranking music video here:

A breath-taking first Semi Finals of SA’s Got Talent 2015

SAGT 2015 final

By Moeketsi Thatho

The first set of 2015 SA’s Got Talent Semi-finals has come and gone. Emotions and high drama dominated the show at the Soweto Theatre on Sunday 18 October with fan votes deciding who goes to the finals and who doesn’t.
It was a tightly-contested affair as all 7 acts put in an exhilarating performance in search of a final spot on the 8th of November.


After a series of mind-blowing acts, Cape Town dance group, ‘Street Stylers’ impressed the voters as they claimed the first spot of the finalists’ bench. The boys from the Mother City impressed the country with more than just their talents; their ambition to also open a community dance workshop touched the hearts of many South Africans. Although if it had been left up to one of the judges, Lalla, the boys would have had to go back and do more rehearsing before perhaps trying again next year.

The second spot had to be decided by the judges and therefore after a tie between the two lady-judges, DJ Fresh ensured that it was a young Henno Williams who put one past the fan favourite-Amanda to claim his seat on the finalists’ bench.

The second line-up

The line-up for the second set of semi-finals looks to be as powerful, if not more-so than the first one. SA’s Got Talent is exclusive to and HD every Sunday evening at 6PM. The live results show will air at 7:30PM on the same night. HD is available on OpenView HD on channel 104. Send your favourite acts to the final by voting.
