Kwaito music and patsula has largely been performed by South Africans. But, this kind of music and dance has become quite popular in Zambia now. Most clubs, homes, schools and other places have made Kwaito music their favourite.
But a young Zambian outfit calling itself 'Ma Africa' has adopted the South African kwaito.
They have localised the the music and are churning out songs in Zambian dialects, which has mesmerised many people. They also sing in Zulu.
They way they do the patsula dance also is so good that the group can be equated to an original South African kwaito band.
I think Ma Africa should participate in a kwaito challenge in South Africa and I am sure they can come back home with all the silver ware because they are just good.
