Apple Music announced DJ duo and Amapiano artists Mellow & Sleazy (real names Phemelo Sefanyetse and Olebogeng Kwanaite) as the next Isgubhu cover stars.
“We are honoured to be chosen for the cover of Apple Music’s Isgubhu playlist for May. We love making music that gets people moving and makes them almost become carefree. We hope everyone in Africa and the world enjoy it!”
they tell Apple Music.
The release of their highly-anticipated second EP Midnight in Sunnyside (2022), available to stream on Apple Music in Spatial Audio, is an amalgamation of the Bacardi and Amapiano melodies that established the duo as a force to be reckoned with on their debut EP Kwa Kwa (2021).
Spearheaded by the viral smash single “Chipi Ke Chipi”, Midnight In Sunnyside features an all-star line-up including Nkosazana Daughter, Young Stunna, M.J., Sizwe Alakine, the late Mpura Mpura and more.
To celebrate their feature as Apple Music’s Isgubhu cover stars, the duo have also created an exclusive Isgubhu playlist that’s reflective of SA’s thriving electronic scene.
“This playlist features some of our favourite South African dance songs that keep everyone on their feet. We share these special songs with the rest of Africa, pushing Piano!”
