Mu­sic to get you on dance floors

Sum­mer just got hot­ter with these siz­zling hits

Sunday World - - Sunday Report / News - By Boi­tumelo Kgob­otlo

The time is now to dance away all the 2018 blues as we pre­pare to usher in 2019 this sum­mer. This is also the busiest time of the year, with artists jug­gling jam-packed fes­tive sea­son sched­ules.

King Mon­ada, who took over the fes­tive sea­son with his hit Mal­wedhe, said this month is go­ing to be quite hec­tic thanks to fans post­ing their faint­ing videos and mak­ing the song pop­u­lar from Cape to Cairo.

“Un­like the De­cem­ber of Ska Bora Moreki, this time the fans made it hap­pen and we are hum­bled,” said his man­ager Al­bert Mak­wela. Af­ter the hyped-up mes­sages on Twit­ter when DJ Tira told Mon­ada they will “Idibala” to­gether at Fact Dur­ban Rocks, Mak­wela said Mon­ada will in fact be ush­er­ing in the new year with SABC1 fans in Sa­sol­burg.

Motswako rap­per Cassper Ny­ovest says De­cem­ber of­ten feels like an exam time for artists. “It has come to the point where ev­ery­one ded­i­cates enough time to see us per­form, they are tak­ing leave and we are work­ing over­time. I think I per­form al­most every day this month,” he says.

The Gets Getsa hit­maker wants to en­ter­tain his fans from all cor­ners of Mzansi.

Kier­nan “AKA” Forbes, whose Fela In Ver­sace is burn­ing up the air­waves, said the fes­tive sea­son is just an­other month as he per­forms con­stantly through­out the year.

These other pop­u­lar hits will heat up the dance floors:

■ We will all re­mem­ber our lost ones with Vusi Nova and Jes­sica Mban­geni’s heartwrench­ing As’phele­langa.

■ Kwesta’s new track Vur Vai is a great party starter.

■ Hot on its heels is an­other dance track by Prince Kay­bee ft. Bu­siswa called Banomoya.

■ Com­pet­ing for the ti­tle of this sum­mer’s an­thems is also DJ Sum­body ft. Tira’s Ayepyep and Monate Mpo­laye fea­tur­ing Cassper Ny­ovest and Thebe.

■ When down­ing the free spirit wa­ters, rather jive than drive to Black Cof­fee’s and David Guetta’s new sin­gle Drive, or stick to DJ Mapho­risa and Moon­child’s Walk ye Phara. If that doesn’t rock your boat, grab your lover and step to ManuWorld­star’s Nalingi and Kelly Khu­malo’s Dance Comigo. And Sho Mad­jozi’s much-awaited de­but al­bum Lim­popo Cham­pi­ons League will fill up the stock­ings.
