Shangaan Electro Mastermind Nozinja Makes His Warp Records Debut With 'Tsekeleke'

Shangaan Electro mastermind Nozinja makes his Warp Records debut with the video for 'Tsekeleke,' shot by Chris Saunders in Johannesburg.


Earlier this month news broke that Shangaan Electro mastermind Nozinja had signed to Warp Records. Wasting no time, the South African producer pioneer has unveiled his debut single at his new label home, a less frantic side of Shangaan Electro's signature lightning speed. The "Tsekeleke" video, which is already an easy frontrunner for video of the year, was shot in Joburg by South African filmmaker/photographer Chris Saunders. Watch the surrealist Shangaan visuals below and look out for more from Nozinja coming up soon (including a slew of European dates which you can peep below). In the meantime, Warp put together a pretty extensive listening guide to their most recent signee over here.

Bobi Wine's Release Detailed in Latest Episode of 'The Messenger'

Trauma is the topic on the podcast's latest episode: "The Ballot or The Bullet."

The latest episode of The Messenger is something to behold.

Created by Sudanese-American rapper Bas, The Messenger throws the spotlight on the thunderous circumstances many African countries face, with a close focus on Ugandan politician Bobi Wine.

In his most recent traumatic experience, Wine and his wife Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi were released from a nearly two-week military house arrest following the ruling of a Ugandan court. Keeping up with current events and circumstances that Wine finds himself in, the latest episode of the podcast recounts the traumatic events that led to Wine's very public abuse and eventual house arrest.

Upon his release, Wine spoke with The Messenger and had this to say, "I want to remind the world that we went in this election knowing how corrupt the staff of the electoral commission is. We saw this through the campaign and the world saw how much was oppressed, how biased and one sided the electoral commission was, and how much it was in the full grip of General Museveni. And therefore we are going to test every legal test, we shall take every legal test. We shall take every legal step. And indeed we shall take every moral and morally proactive, nonviolent, but legal and peaceful step to see that we liberate ourselves. The struggle has not ended. It is just beginning."
