Meet Tdk Macassette
Give her, her credit !
Cause this Durban born rising star is one of the hottest things happening in South Africa & dance music right now. Full name Thandeka Mkhwanazi; Tdk says she caught her big break from working with DJ Maphorisa & a client based in Cameroon.
You see, Tdk Macassette can’t be boxed in. Like most WhoToldYou artists she is unpredictable in terms of her versitility. She owns an established & thriving P.R company called Tdeeiosion. While working with her then client –& Dj Maphorisa– at the time, she hopped into the booth “fooling around” & the Gqom barbie was born.
She went on to do a couple collaborations with DJ Maphorisa & the Gqom wave formed; Goosheshe(Ft. Dj Buckz, Sjava & Tdk Macassette)
Tdk‘s rthymic pace & her distinctive voice on dance beats made the people fall in love, dubbed “gqom chant” due to the high energy vibrations felt when her lyrics are repeated in large crowds.
But this 26 year-old does not disapoint when it comes to stage presense either. Tdk Macassette always masters the stage like a pro!
Unfortunately Dj Maphorisa & Tdk Macassette did not have an amicable end to their partnership.
the show must go on
& so did she.
was the next banger this barbie with a bwady released on world dance markets.
She says “domoroza” means to have fun, get silly & just be your authentic self. Tdk Macassette considers herself a playful girl that stays true to herself & she wants listeners to hear that in her music.
For her career’s sucesss she mentions the usual heavy hitters; herself, God & family. However she is especially grateful to Dance dj legend; Dj Cndo. Tdk mentions Dj Cndo’s –real name; Sindisiwe Zungu– as one of the people instrumental in her journey to sucess as Dj Cndo always shared her platform with the Gqom barbie.
Here’s to girls supporting girls!
Tdk macessette says; thanks to DJ Cndo sharing her stage & set with her for 1- 2 minutes, she was able to showcase her talent & be discovered by Universal music.
Up next the world !
Zama- Tdk Macessette is the latest tune this gqom artist released. Watch out for this focused young star because you definitely haven’t heard the last of her.
The energy queen. Book Niniola for your show & you’re sure to be entertained.We can bet our bottom Naira that you haven’t heard house music like this before; with an african twist. Frankie Knuckles could never have imagined this with the diaspora when he first layed his beats at the warehouse on the Southside of Chicago.
Niniola considers her music Afro-House; a mash up between Afro-beats & house music. But how ever she chooses to categorize her art, one thing is for certain; it is definitely a hitting bop no matter what you call it. Niniola released Ibadi produced by Nigerian heavy hitter producer; Sarz & the rest all seems to be history. It took a while for this fireball of energy to find her real footing & sound. We all know the world market for a female artist is already cookie cutter, so in a country like Nigeria that feigns modesty; Niniola‘s rauchy, sex positive lyrics in Yoruba -a native language– has the Nigerian audience split. Something everyone cannot deny is Niniola‘s obvious talent.
