Audio: Electric Jive's 'A Tribute To Joyce Mogatusi' [Mixtape]

[embed width="600"][/embed]


The always on-it folk at Electric Jive pay respect to the recently deceased Joyce Mogatusi, lead singer and bandleader of 50s/60s South African harmonic girl group Dark City Sisters. Guided by Mogatusi, the Dark City Sisters — named after Alexandra Township, back then known as "Dark City" due to its lack of electricity — helped usher in what would later be known as the mbaqanga style. "By 1964, the Sisters had become the most popular female group in South Africa – and a large part of this success can be attributed to the vocal talents of Mogatusi and her ability to lead the team of women in joyous song." Read an extended account of Joyce Mogatusi's tremendous contribution to SA music over at EJ. Hear "Tap Tap Ntshebe" above and download A Tribute to Joyce Mogatusi mixtape below.

EFF Calls Out President Cyril Ramaphosa On Slow COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

South Africa's opposition party leader, Julius Malema, has demanded that President Cyril Ramaphosa speed up the distribution rate of COVID-19 vaccines.

Julius Malema has reportedly instructed President Cyril Ramaphosa to release South Africa's detailed COVID-19 vaccine rollout strategy. Malema added that his party, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), would initiate a sit-in at vaccination centres should Ramaphosa fail to share this national vaccination plan by the end of April 2021. This comes after the South African government's last announcement of the vaccine rollout plan two months ago.
