Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

PARTY TUNE! Who's With Me? – JR, Jack Parow and Tumi Masemola
It’s no secret that hip pop star JR (Show Dem) and internationally acclaimed Afrikaans rapper Jack Parow (Cooler as Ekke) have been friends for their entire musical careers with collaborative hits like Ek Wens Jy Was Myne which was on Jack Parow’s debut platinum selling album and Show Goes On featuring Die Heuwels Fantasties which was one of the biggest hits in 2011 off JR’s BEEGA Edition of his sophomore album, Colorfull. JR and Jack Parow were show-stealers at this year’s MK awards where they were privileged to perform together, and again, more recently, to a few thousand adoring fans in Kirstenbosch at the Old Mutual Gardens Festival. Earlier this year, they also had the pleasure of spending a few glorious days in Namibia while on set for another campaign where they were joined by the beautiful and talented Tumi “Lady Naturelle” Masemola from the SAMA winning urban pop group GI (Gang of Instrumentals) fame. It was here, in the heart of the picturesque Swakopmund that the three muso’s decided to, on their return to South Africa, get into studio to write a song that encompasses their passion for music, parties and summer! A few months and writing sessions later, the three artists then turned to friend and fellow musician/producer, Jax Panik to produce and co-write this infectious track. Tumi says of the collaboration “Whoa! I am proud to have worked with these guys and can't wait for the country to hear it!” The song will be available for mobile download only on MTN and Vodacom networks soon! Have a listen to the track HERE!
