“Samba Ngolayini” gets star-packed remix – and new dance challenge

The summertime hit track “Samba Ngolayini” by DJ Lag x Worst Behaviour has been given a star-packed remix that also comes with a new dance challenge.

DJ Tira, Okmalumkoolkat, Tipcee, BEAST and Gento Bareto all add their creativity to the “Samba Ngolayini” Remixw, due out on all streaming platforms via Afrotainment on Friday February 5th

The remix showcases the collaborative and caring spirit present in the heavyweight gathering of Kwa-Zulu Natal-raised talents that includes Afrotainment founder and hitmaker, DJ Tira, as well as Umlazi-born and internationally recognised music innovator, Okmalumkoolkat.

Afrotainment-signed house vocalist Tipcee (“Amadada”; “Amashigoshi”) and hip-hop artist and gqom songwriter BEAST also contribute, along with Gento Bareto who is known as the King of Amapiano dance moves.

“The song is a banger and we are all dreaming of the time when we can dance together in a line, like we used to,” says DJ Lag. 

“Until then, stay safe and join the #SambaNgolayini challenge by sending a video of yourself dancing to the remix on your own. We will be doing the same and are looking forward to seeing what amazing creativity South Africa comes up with this time!”

“I am glad I am finally working with DJ Lag,” adds DJ Tira. 

“Gqom is in safe hands and fans can expect banger after banger. I know everyone is still enjoying the music video for our first collaboration ‘Siyagroova’ and now we are adding in the ‘Samba Ngolayini’ Remix. Gqom is back on its journey to make the world dance.”

Fans can take inspiration from Gento Bareto’s dancing when listening to the “Samba Ngolayini” Remix to create their own #SambaNgolayini dance. They can then share the video on social media platforms with the #SambaNgolayiniStaySafe hashtag.
