DJ Tira & Heavy-K Release New Single Inspired By The Soweto Uprising, ‘Inkululeko’

By @AtlehangMoloi on 03/01/2024 in Music

DJ Tira and Heavy-K recently collaborated with Makhadzi, Zee Nxumalo, and Afro Brothers on their new record, 'Inkululeko'. 

'Inkululeko' is inspired by the events of June 16, 1976. We are free but we are still not free when the people who have the power to make our lives better have a lot of work to do. As South Africans get ready to vote in the local elections, many people may relate to this song.

The Soweto uprising (or Soweto riots) was a series of demonstrations and protests led by black school children in South Africa during apartheid that began on the morning of 16 June 1976. Today, the day is celebrated as Youth Day, an annual public holiday in which South Africans remember the significance of the Soweto Uprising and the bravery of those involved, as well as the importance of supporting the country's youth.
