Released 3 months ago, 'Ulazi', by 9umba & Mr Jazziq featuring Mpura and Zuma, has more than 2 million streams reaching a gold status.
'Ulazi' is an amapiano fire track driving Mzansi crazy with its bassline and lyrics. Ever since easing of lockdown regulations, DJ's don't make a mistake of not playing it, as they know the crowd yearns for Zuma's lines accompanied by insane log drum sounds produced by 9umba and Mr Jazziq.
The crew, 9umba, Mr Jazziq, Mpura and Zuma, is from one of SA's disadvantaged areas, the Alexandra township (or Alex). This Johannesburg place prides itself of abashayi benamba like Ryzor, half of Liquideep, and Gino Brown.
Amapiano have taken a different direction since the Black Is Brown Entertainment clique graced our dance music scene. Probably every single of theirs, whether it features Zuma, Mr Jazziq, Reece Madlisa or Mpura, it's bound to be well received.
Hence, 'Ulazi', distributed by Electromode Ingrooves, has more than two million streams on YouTube (more than 2,5 million by the time of writing). Reaching this number has certified the single gold, according to RISA standards.
Seems there are greater things to come and congratulations to the gents. Well deserved.
