DJ Tira could be on the verge of dropping one of the biggest records this year.

DJ Tira does not let adversity stop him from exercising his greatness.

Watch: DJ Tira teases gqom snippet

The Afrotainment label runner and KwaZulu-Natal’s (KZN) golden child took to social media to give us a taste of the music he has been working on during this lockdown.

Suffice it to say, if South Africa makes it out of this coronavirus-induced quarantine, this gqom song could contest as a 2020 summer smash hit.

What we know about the track: When will it be released?

There is not much information available, as yet, on the title of the song but if we were to take a guess, it may have something to do with our current reality.

DJ Tira captioned the video with “uyayazi impama ye sosha?” In English, the phrase translates to “have you ever felt the slap of a soldier?”

Coincidentally, the phrase is featured in what we believe is the chorus of the unreleased song.

It might not turn out to be the title of the track but the context is based around army deployment in South Africa and how that has impacted our society.

You will probably never come across a lyric breakdown that digs this deep into a gqom track on the internet ever again.

No word has come from DJ Tira on when the track will be released or, in fact, if there is a brand new album from Afrotainment on the way.

At this time, we will have to allow the 43-year-old veteran time to craft his music and deliver it to us when he feels the time is right.

Fresh out of teaching DJ Maphorisa a few lessons in the Castle Lite Unlocks In Bed With battle, the revered DJ has — by all accounts — spent most of his time in quarantine with his family.
