Social media was abuzz this past week with the anticipated online release of Ntsiki Mazwai’s latest musical offering, ‘Qhawe'.


This is a woman who has consistently kept South Africa on its toes tackling social issues and most of the time in a brutally honest fashion. This is a woman who was initially introduced to us in 2005, when she made the country stand still with her smash hit ‘uRongo.’
Fast forward fourteen years as an independent music practitioner and this time Ntsiki Mazwai has teamed up with Djs/Producers Phobia Funkmaster and FortuneTribe from the Workshop Creatives music stable.

Dj Phobia Funkmaster (Bongani Mbambo) is an unsung musical legend in the local music industry. Visually impaired, he lost his sight due to Cancer; it is a great wonder and fascination to see him work miraculously around musical instruments and equipment. He taught himself how to play the keyboard at the age of five and has gone on to express his musical genius in various musical compositions and productions over the years.

FortuneTribe are the new players in the game. They are hugely gifted and have a unique and commercial sound which fuses live African drums. They make house music sound friendly to the average ear. This Gauteng born trio Thabo ‘Teeblow’ Sindelo, Phuti ‘Tlabzin’ Matla and Simphiwe ‘Cubic’Tshabalala have a deep passion for their craft and it is expressed in the intricate detail of the music they make.

‘Qhawe’ is a Nguni word meaning a ‘hero.’ Although the message of the song is rooted in freedom, liberation and empowerment, the catchy beat will move at least one part of your body. This is a well crafted tribal house musical composition that takes the listener on a powerful meditative journey. It is an inspiring piece of music which rises and falls at intervals.  The song ‘Qhawe’ is unapologetically African. It is the story of victory and resilience. It is a song about claiming and owning your space. A hero is someone who shows courage. The women in South Africa have had to show a tremendous amount of courage. 

"This song is inspired by the undying fire inside women. It is inspired by the spirit with which women carry their pain with dignity and power." says Ntsiki. 

Dates of the promotional tour will follow the release of QHAWE on 25 October 2019.

Qhawe was recorded at Workshop Creatives Studio is now available on all digital stores.
