“Our talented youth has given up and drugs are winning,” DJ Tira says

DJ Tira speaks about his new song, Inkululeko which features Heavy K, Makhadzi, Zee Nxumalo, and Afro Brotherz.

The song is inspired by the events of June 16 1976 and touching on what freedom means today.

Speaking to TshishaLIVE, the Durban DJ said, “The song is inspired by the situation and state of our country currently. The artwork is inspired by a famous picture captured during the Soweto uprising in South Africa.”

“The build-up is very important. With elections coming the actual message is to encourage the youth to honestly vote for a better South Africa and freedom.”

Tira says he wants to inspire youths and remind them of the price that was paid.

“I took it upon myself to remind the youth of the price that was paid and the road that was paved for us to be here. I want to inspire a youth that doesn’t give up easily, that fights for their dreams. Our talented youth has given up and drugs are winning.

“By taking the step to vote it’s you contributing to the South Africa you would like to see.”

“The message is too big to be carried by me alone. I connected artists who share the same passion and understand their power and influence,” he adds.
