Why Dj Kwame is taking over 2020!
Born and raised in the then dusty streets of Ivory Park located in Midrand, Kwame Nkrumah Mahlanga better known as DJ Kwame is set to take over 2020 in a major way. Even with the coronavirus pandemic slowing down all our lives, DJ Kwame hasn’t touched the brakes one bit.
Having already signed a deal with a Spanish label, he has dropped his single Abanamali featuring Mathandazo Gatya which is sitting on numerous charts across the country. Abanamali is a Nguni term that simply means “they don’t have money” , it’s a song based on people living a life they can’t afford all in the name of impressing women, they put themselves under unnecessary pressure and have their whole lives revolving around women, always waiting on payday so they can display wealth they don’t even have.
Kwame says: “The aim is not to critique the behaviour but to encourage them to look at things differently.”
The song is an upbeat song that will have you dancing while the vocals will get you singing along before it gets close to the end. The song is perfectly suited for radio and Kwame designed this sound perfectly due to his experience.
After graduating Kwame started his first radio job at Hillbrow Community Radio station as a technical radio producer. He later on moved to Kaya FM and it has been five years since he joined Kaya FM as a radio producer for the following shows (The Uncaptured, KayaBiz, Today with John Perlman, Side Bar with Dr Sindi, My Money and Me, Good Friday and The Winner’s Circle).
Not only is he blazing a trail on radio he has played across the border in Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Botswana. Kwame is more than an individual that just plays music, he is an artist that aims to speak to people’s souls through the language of music.
