Then, Revoltod decided to play a full hour of unreleased tracks from Cape Verde and its diaspora by the likes of KGB Squad and GBM. Cavera's studio guest of this month is Hajila, a Zimbabwean artist living in South Africa.
The August show was a bit late (though not retarded) so we called it the August/September edition.
This month J4
is accompanied in the studio by Shamiel a.k.a. dj Shamiel X
from Cape Town, currently living in Johannesburg and to be seen on stage with his turntablist crew, the Beatbangaz. They run through the latest tracks from all over, including the exclusive 'All over the map' by the African Allstars: Maggz, Kenny Majozi, Ziggy-Lah (X Plastaz) and Zimbabwe Legit.
In the radio studio they visit Youtube to watch a music video featuring Nollywood star Nkem Owoh (Osuofia)
who was recently the victim of a police raid in a club in Amsterdam where he was performing. The police were looking for 419 scammers who frequent the club so they arrested everyone including the performer! By coincidence, Osuofia's hit single 'I go chop your dollar' talks about these same scams.
