Hot off the heels of Pro’s well received O-Session – which was a multiple trend on social mediums like Twitter – June sees Channel O celebrate Kwaito legends TKZEE.
We take a trip down memory lane to where it all began and among the tracks Kabelo, Tokollo and Zwai are set to perform come Thursday 2 June at 19:00 are “Take it Easy”, which was their first song; “Masimbela”, inspired by the East West conflict in US rap – like the feud that existed between Tokollo and Mdu as well as “Palafala”, the title track of their first album and first major hit.
Also, look out for surprise performances from the TKZEE family including hits like the party track “Fiasco” and “Izinja Zam”. We leap eight years later to chart-toppers like “Sdudla” and “Viva La Pantsula” taken off their comeback album titled Coming Home, which is modern and futuristic but still with enough GUZ flavour to keep it unmistakably TKZEE.
In this O-Session the trio also pays a heartfelt tribute to those that have made an impact in their lives and career but have since passed on, including Dr Mageu, Thuli Thilis and Moses Molelekwa.
The O-Sessions gave 80 loyal Channel O viewers as well as ultimate TKZEE fans the chance to be part of an exclusive concert as the group voyage through their life and music career.
Still to come on The O-Sessions are Jozi (July) and Slikour (August).
Don’t miss TKZEE on Channel O’s LIVE O-Sessions on Thursday 2 June at 19:00 as well as the FEATURING TKZEE special on Friday 3 June at 20:30.
* TKZEE – is made up of three school friends – rappers Tokollo “Magesh” Tshabalala and Kabelo “Bouga Luv” Mabalane as well as classically trained musician Zwai Bala.
