Editors’ Notes Bounce theory and mbaqanga practicalities get mashed up when Xhosa singer/producer Anatii steps to the mic. “Ngozi” is a meditation about money owed to mashonisas. “Ehlatini” is a bluesy mountain pop track that cautions against losing oneself to the never-ending city hustle. “Sikhangel’ igolide/We suffer on the weekday”, he laments. “Ndaweni” is primetime sgubhu for the party, while “Ntloni” casts Anatii as a seasoned trap star. But Iyeza wouldn’t be complete without his tried-and-tested cool-kid anthem “Thixo Onofefe”.
