Jazziq & Friends 

Incomparable, award-winning amapiano music producer Tumelo Manyoni (aka Mr JazziQ) launched his YouTube-based podcast in collaboration with high-end shoe brand Spitz more than a year ago. Since then, things have been getting ‘litty’, to say the least.  

It’s one of a kind – a proudly amapiano podcast where JazziQ has conversations with your favourite local acts within the genre at Spitz’s flagship store in Sandton City, Johannesburg. One of the best episodes was when DBN Gogo visited the show for a tell-all. This podcast is all about good vibes and dope beats. Find it on YouTube.

After School Is After School 

This podcast is entirely focused on host Sis G.U (Gugulethu Nyatsumba) – in a relatable way. Her personal goal is to use the platform to talk candidly and openly about the struggles that 20-somethings like herself experience today.  

Gugu is super passionate about inspiring others to constantly strive to be better people and to want better for themselves. Her platform and content heavily draws from that. It doesn’t matter if you cry or laugh while listening to her show, it’s all about love, light and good energy. Join the conversation via Spotify, Deezer or Apple Podcasts.
