Wow, this is big! This song is hot! This song is so melodious! This song is loud! This song is what you call mad o-o. If you are looking for a jam of life, Limpopo by Master KG ft Zanda Zakuza and Makhadzi is an example of jam of life. 

If you recall, Master KG featured Zanda Zakuza in the song skeleton move, which was a hit. 

Master KG has again proven that he is unstoppable in the music world. He keeps releasing great tunes back to back that ends up as hits.

Guess what? This song features his vocals. 

What is the song Diboya Limpopo by Master KG ft Zanda Zakuza and Makhadzi about?

“Di Boya Limpopo,” when translated to English, means “It’s about to go down in Limpopo.”

It is a song celebrating the festive season. This particular song is about the festive season in Limpopo. December; the yuletide period is like a massive event in Limpopo province! 

December is such a fun time because people leave the rural Limpopo from January to November for Johannesburg (the city of gold). They either go there to study or work; or do both.

So, at the end of the year, in December precisely, they return to Limpopo to unwind and have much fun. They enjoy themselves and the riches they worked so hard to acquire in the past eleven (11) months. They celebrate with their loved ones and share stories of their adventures and challenges in Johannesburg City of Gold.

Lyrically: The song comes in two verses taken by Zanda Zakuza & Makhadzi, respectively. Master KG alone took the chorus thrice. The artiste sang in three languages, one being a dialect of an official language. They sang in isiZulu, TshiVenda, and Khelobedu, which is a dialect of Sepedi.

Vocal: I love their vocals; they sang in a way that enhanced the beauty of the song. They have got clear and exciting to the ears’ vocals. They also sang expressively to the beat. Thumbs up! They were also consistent with their vocal quality; they did not go out of tune.

Melody: This is so melodious. It is a fast-tempo beat that is solid and engaging. The rhythm flows perfectly well. There was also consistency in the style of rhythm. The instrumentals are not varied. However, the few ones used made the song very tuneful. The primary instruments used in the composition of the song include drums and piano.

Video: I love the visual; it compliments the track. I could see the excitement all over their faces that it was time to be in Limpopo again to have fun.
