Bongo Maffin reunion is so happening!

23 February 2018

2018 is already shaping up to be the year that blessed us with iconic returns. In the same week that we found out through Ava DuVernay that Sade has recorded some new music for a film adaptation of upcoming film - A Wrinkle In Time, Bongo Maffin has also been confirmed to be happening.

The iconic kwaito group, who last released music as a group over 12 years ago, will be reuniting onstage for the first at the One Source Live live event, where Patoranking and Dj Maphorisa will also be performing. Various news channels, including Destiny Connect, QuenchSA ran with the story earlier this week, while TshisaLive had Oskido confirming that the group is, in fact, working on brand new music. 

Consisting of members Thandiswa Mazwai, Speedy, Stoane Seate and Jahseed, Bongo Maffin was one of the most popular kwaito groups in the late 90s and early 2000s. Their sound was loved for its creative fusions of different African influences, a list of flavours that include Afro-Pop, dancehall and kwaito.
