Now that we've reached the end of what turned out to be a rather challenging year for mankind, it's time to look back at the highs and lows. The Channel O Top 30 is as much a showcase of songs dominating the streets and dancefloors as much as it is a tastemaker of looming currents. And this year, it's easy to see which songs gave us the soundtracks that helped to withstand the toughest moments and remember the light through the blues. 


Master KG - Jerusalema

The single went viral throughout the world, introducing the house music producer to audiences as far as Europe, South America and the US! The song went on to reach the top 5 on the most searched for songs around the world, become the first local song to reach 100 million views on Youtube, revive its impact through the Burna Boy remix, dominate Tit Tok and, most importantly, spend the most weeks at #1 on the Channel O Top 30!

Now that we know this was one of former President Barrack Obama's fave songs in 2020, we know that this chart has its pulse of the best. That's a small flex, but this collaborative joint truly got all the buzz at the start of the year, and it was not without good reason. 


Nomcebo Zikode – Xola Moya Wami

She's one of the year's biggest success stories. Fresh off delivering some soul-stirring vocals on Master KG's blockbuster hit 'Jerusalema', Nomcebo proved she's not one hit wonder with her own breakout hit and best selling album. She's had a massive year and we love it for her. 


MFR Souls ft Major League DJz, Kamo Mphela & Bontle Smith  – Amanikiniki

With the amapiano wave sustaining its impact through 2020, MFR Souls floated to the crest with a fire banger. Featuring Major League DJz, Kamo Mphela and Bontle Smith, the track has continued giving us all the essential street anthem.


Babes Wodumo – Elamont

The Queen of Gqom made a triumphant return to the charts with her single Elamont and album Idandokazi. This would be her second studio album after 2016's 'Gqom Queen Vol 1', and many have applauded it for improving on her initial offering. Babes' return also brought back the sound back to the forefront, proving once she is the first lady of Gqom. You can't help but stan.

It's not cute not knowing what's banging, so be sure to stay on top of things with the Channel O Top 30 chart, Sundays at 19:00 on DStv channel 320.
