Two DJ Lag tracks for hit Netflix series JIVA!

Fittingly for a dance-rooted show set in Durban, two DJ Lag tracks feature on the hit Netflix series, JIVA!, currently showing on the streaming platform across different global territories.

Amanikiniki”, featuring Unticipated Soundz and off DJ Lag’s 2019 album Uhuru, and the 2021’s single “Samba Ngolayini” with Worst Behavior and Gento Bareto both appear in the drama series. 

JIVA! follows the life of the talented street dancer Ntombi who – while juggling the demands of a dead-end job, family responsibility and a rocky love life – realises that her dance moves could be her ticket out of her working-class neighbourhood in Durban. But first, she must overcome her fears, beat her rivals and sort out the chaos that is her family.

The series is the creation of Busisiwe Ntintili – an award-winning writer, director and producer with 20 years of television and film under her belt, including South Africa’s highest-rated television shows, the Peabody Award-Winning drama series “Intersexions” and the box office hit movie Happiness is a Four Letter Word.

The series stars a dynamic all-local cast, including breakout star, Noxolo Dlamini (Sarafina Stage Production, Isibaya) playing the lead.
