Hot off the back of 7 South African Music Award nominations, South African artist Zakes Bantwini and his collaborator, Kasango receive a stellar Afro House remix of the leading track off of his Ghetto King album, Osama, by none other than Pete Tong and Paul Rogers that will be out on Paradise Sound System. Osama certainly took the world by storm and was featured in some of the biggest sets of the season last year. It great to see artists such as Pete Tong and Paul Rogers bringing their own story to the track that has done so much for Afro House Music worldwide.
With over 10 million streams to date and rising as well as support from industry leaders, radio stations and publications around the world, Osama was undoubtedly one of the key tracks of 2021 that flooded the dancefloors with uplifting nostalgia and empathic emotion. After he fell in love with the original and supported it massively on his BBC Radio 1 show, Pete Tong alongside Paul Rogers flip the original with a dancefloor-edge, whilst maintaining the original’s essence, groove and ease of listening, whilst adding Pete Tong and Paul Roger’s classic sense of space and arrangement that will revitalise the original for time to come.
