Nkalakatha remake ensures status as rugby, bar mitzvah anthem: video
Gabi Le Roux and Mandoza recently got back into the studio to record the remake of Mandoza's most successful release Nkalakatha.
This time around the song is enhanced with up-to-date effects and new lyrics.
Songs producer Le Roux said: 'The song has been played in the townships, at the rugby, at braais, bar mitzvahs. It's had such massive appeal over the last 12 years. Mandoza and I said 'why don't we do this again ... give it a fresh new feel, pump it up.'
'Before [the song] was owned by a record company, but now we want to take ownership and do anything that we like because the song still exists after 12 years,' said Mandoza.
As a popular anthem among rugby fans, the new version has a few Afrikaans lyrics.
'We're giving it a 2012 feel, but you'll still recognise the baseline ... Mandoza delivered it with a lot more energy,' said Le Roux.
