Johannesburg, South Africa – Friday, 1 October 2021 – RudeBoyz deliver on their promise with the release of gqom hit, Shwele.

Gqom pioneers and leading DJing duo, RudeBoyz return to music with the release of the Gqom classic, Shwele, featuring DJ Tira ,Dladla Mshunqisi and Shayo. The single marks the duo’s first release of the year.

But more than that, the new single symbolizes an end to an over two-year sabbatical since RudeBoyz offered fans new music. Although, KZN’s finest still had success as their music was featured on Africa’s first Netflix original dance series, JIVA! this year.

RudeBoyz gives us the Gqom contender for the summer anthem of the year with Shwele. The single is the continued showcasing of the unity found amongst Gqom artists. Moreover, it is affirmation that Gqom was never dead but is alive and well, and is a genre that still carries its full impact.

The single is available across all DSP. Click here.

About Shwele:

 Rudeboyz paired up with Durban’s DJ Tira and Dladla Mshunqisi on a blazing Gqom single Shwele. It is a fun filled song infused with the signature KZN originated sound of kwaito fused with high tempo electro influenced production that is produced by Massive Q and Andile Tee.

The Shwele lyrics when translated means, “sorry,” for actions done under the influence of bev. The chorus implies how possibly the writer was under the influence and is asking forgiveness from God. Dladla Mshunqisi comes in to emphasise the forgiveness part with his signature falsetto which makes the song a vibe for Gqom lovers.
