Househead

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today is finally here! Tomorrow is a public holiday and I can’t wait to go to bed tonight and have a lie in tomorrow! I haven’t slept in in ages!!

Anyway, one of my followers and a good friend reminded me that I haven’t shared good music in a while!

I think I’m fast becoming a househead. I never expected to be any kind of head in my life! There’s no one genre of music I like. I tend to follow a musician that resonates with an experience I am going through.

First I heard of Sun-EL musician when he worked with Something Soweto on Akanamali, Another jam you should have a listen to – Swizz Beats thought it was great too when he heard it on a visit to SA!

I really enjoy the township sound. I’m the generation of kids that grew up on Kwaito music, a South African genre that was very popular in the 90s. For me, Sun-EL is reminiscent of that chilled vibe that you can bump at a party on a Saturday and again on a Sunday afternoon. I have added this jam to all my playlists and it really goes in at any time of the day at any time of the week, really! If you like the sound of that, you’ll definitely like the sound of this jam right here! And no, I have no idea what this song is about😂

So, please check it out! And while you’re at it, please share your latest obsession! I enjoy trying out new music🙂

Thank you so much for popping in today! Have a great day, and to all the South African readers, enjoy Human Rights day!

Summer Jam

Happy Wednesday erbody! I hope this week has been good to you! My first MC gig went very well! I had so much fun and look forward to doing it again! Today was the first day of school with all the students there. It was a pretty smooth day considering🤔

It’s still summer over in South Africa even though we are all back at work. While we can’t enjoy a time of rest and long lazy days doing nothing, we still have the heat, afternoon thunderstorms (in Johannesburg) and summer music that reminds us of a summer gone by!

Today, I’d like to share my favourite jam at the moment. I have my ex to thank for my appreciation for house music. He used to compile and release mixtapes of house and African music and because I was being supportive, I would download these mixtapes and listen to them intently. SMH, the things we do for love are so silly sometimes, lol! We have since parted ways, but my appreciation for this genre of music has remained!

I love Black Coffee sooo much, guys! Not only does he put together great music and is world renowned, he has not forgotten his homeland. He has perfected the balance of working overseas with big names and coming home to do small gigs in smaller cities. I have a great deal of respect for his work ethic!

I enjoyed this jam for it’s lyrical offering. The words are very engaging speaking of a love the writer is trying to escape and is finding difficulty to do so. Also, Delilah Montagu’s vocal delivery is amazing! I love a smooth husky voice on any track! In this life or the next, I would love to be a vocal sensation like her on a house track, so if you know a guy that can hook me me up, then please, let a girl know!

Thank so much for popping in! It’s always a pleasure to have you here. I’d love to hear what your favourite jams are at the moment so please comment below and share the music! Have a great week😘

Be not Proud

Evening Everyone.

I hope you are having a good week.

I am very saddened to hear of the passing of one of South Africa’s great hip hop artists, HHP. Depression is becoming more and more of a concern in our country and it is becoming of greater importance to talk about it so that we may have a better understanding of it and can be of better assistance to those around us…

I can’t say I have struggled with depression myself, not to the extent of suicidal thoughts anyway, and I hope that if you are or have been in those shoes, you would seek help. Whether you believe it or not, your life is more important than pride and trying to brave through the pain.

Thank you for popping in. I appreciate your presence here. Take care of yourselves and those that you love, please😘

Shout to the Lord by Hillsong Australia

Shout to the Lord

All the earth let us sing

Power and majesty

Praise to the King

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar

At the sound of Your name

Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand

Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

Lyrical Challenge – Day 2

I’m back! Wow, OJ didn’t tell me how tough it is to choose just one song to share! That problem comes with being a word lover, I suppose. I hope you’ve checked out her cool blog though🙂. And I hope you are enjoying these posts as much as I am😊

A quick recap; the Lyrical Challenge works as follows:

1. Thank the person who nominated you,

2. Share your favourite song/lyrics,

3. Nominate 3 other bloggers

So, today, I picked lyrics from a song by Davido. It’s in Nigerian Pidgin, I think. Anyway, he describes a woman I’d like to be: an attractive woman with no interest in material things and chases after his heart. Love really does boil down to two people who want to be together. The rest is just decorative!

Aye by Davido
Cause you want my love o
She no want designer
She no want Ferarri
She say na my love o
You belong to meee
And I belong to her o
Oh babyyy!
You go killie somebody
They say love is blind
But I dey see am for your eyes o (o ee aa)

My nominations for today:

Afro Chic

SkyLarity

Almandyne

I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend😘

Afternoon Everyone!

As you know, Twitter is where cool things live and the 3 day Lyrical Challenge is no different! I couldn’t wait for Sunday so I thought I would start today until Sunday!

Ok, let’s do this! My first song is actually an interlude so it’s short:

Newer Balance (freestyle) by Jhenè Aiko
I don’t need no other guy
Ever since you caught my eye
Oh you’re the only one I see
The only one that’s for me, my baby
And it would really be a shame
If you are just running game on me
Oh, baby please, baby please tell me it ain’t so, oh no
I got a strange feeling
That maybe I am dealing with a smooth player
Ooh, I’m praying

That you are who you are saying
Hope you are who you are saying

My 3 nominations are:

Beaton

Nshami14

Tina

Thanks for reading 🙂 I’ll be back with a new song tomorrow!
