About the show

Playing tracks by

Sipho Hot Stix Mabuse , Kumasi, Sky Jinx, JE Movement , The Times and more.

For the past few years Afrosynth.blogspot.com has been uncovering lost gems from South Africa’s thriving but isolated music industry of the 1980s. Afrosynth's 11 mixes to date have offered a new generation of music lovers from around the world a glimpse of what was on offer at the time. Efrika is proud to bring you this Best of Afrosynth compilation featuring DJ Okapi’s favourite tracks from each of these mixes.

There are obscure songs by top artists, such as Brenda & The Big Dudes, Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabuse and bassist Sipho Gumede’s hip-hop alter ego The Boogie Man, perhaps the earliest example of rapping in isiZulu. There are also tracks by The Cannibals and Kumasi - the members of which went on to form the mighty Stimela soon after.
