Ann Jangle Releases Impassioned New Single “Rebel”

Ann Jangle rebel

Today sees the release of Rebel the second track from Ann Jangle’s solo E.P due for release at the end of August 2018.

“This song portrays the love- hate relationship between 2 people who can’t seem to make it work, let go nor move forward. It comes from a place of being stuck yet the desire to move on.

Rebel was written to channel those emotions which so many people experience in romantic relationships that don’t work.

Instead of seeing them as a time to move on, we tend to hold on for dear life and miss the lesson that was meant to be learnt.” – Ann Jangle

Shot by her filmmaker friend Dino Denton at The Hoek in Noordhoek Cape Town, and with a very special guest appearance by Ann’s dog Kevin.

skwatta kamp there you go Flabba

Today marks three years since South African hip hop musician Nkululeko Habedi professionally known as Flabba was stabbed to death by his lover.

Flabba was part of the seven piece rap group Skwatta Kamp, a name derived from Squatter Camp, due to South Africa’s Shanty Towns. Members of the group included Infa, Nish, Shugasmakx, Flabba, Nemza, Slikour and Bozza.

His group-mates at Skwatta Kamp paid him a tribute by releasing a new song titled “There You Go.” The song summarizes the character and personality of the late Flabba.

Nkululeko was fatally stabbed by his girlfriend Sindisiwe Manqele, who was later sentenced to 12 years in jail.

Skwatta Kamp member Nkosana “Bozza” Nkosi said the group had to wait for everything to quieten down before they could respond with a song. He said the song was a conversation between them and Flabba.

“We’re just speaking about what he meant to us. Each of us have different conversations with him. He was like a brother to us even before music came into the picture,” said Nkosi.
