Yes you did read that correctly... Legends of Kwaito, Mandoza and TKZee are coming to London! WOOT! WOOT!
For those of you that pick up a copy of The South African newspaper every Tuesday morning, you may have already noticed this, however Mandoza, the man behind the well known South African club anthem, Nkalakatha is going to be doing a show right here in London very soon.
I can't believe its been around 10 years already that Nkalakatha started busting out in just about every club in South Africa, not to mention also played during rugby games when tries were scored. I remember one of my best mates Rhys Williams dancing to it with all his staff in the back at Jabulani Butchery in Warwick Triangle, Durban whenever it played on the radio. Not to mention Mandoza doing a live performance of it for the final show of Big Brother 1 in SA, remember Ferdi, Bad Brad, Margaret and the likes? I can't believe how time has flown as it still feels like yesterday, just goes to show how much fun I've been having in London, cause damn its gone quick.
The show takes place on Saturday 5th December at Stratford Rex in Stratford on the east side... a bit of a trek for us South-WestSide locals but I think given its Mandoza and TKZee, it should be well worth the effort. Tickets are £25 in advance from TicketMania on 02085550044. They've got quite a lineup for the evening which starts at 9pm and runs all the way through to 5am Sunday morning... EISH! Big Night!...

Just in case you haven't been very observant for the last 10 years or so... here a vid of Nkalakatha
