In lieu of the success of his first EP, Just Jabba is releasing his first single of 2019, ‘Guluva’, featuring Sandi Blouse on the 31st of May 2019. With a retro nu-age kwaito and very kasi feel, the song pays homage to the nostalgic memories of Pantsula with its eerie and rough yet smooth beat accompanied by the effortless rap by both Jabba and Mx Blouse.
Now based in Johannesburg, in his hometown of Boksburg, Jabba has been working on this single in anticipation for his next EP scheduled to be released on the 16th of August 2019 titled “not too bad 4 a PANTSULA.” Guluva will be released on all streaming platforms.
Last year, Jabba released ‘Look Up!’ , an EP that created a sensory overload and an almost undefinable sound. Although he is largely influenced by rap and kwaito, the album featured trap music, jazz and a Capella. In total, the EP has gotten more than 11 500 listens on SoundCloud and critical acclaim. He is also a part of Bougie Pantsula, which saw instant fame with the Mail & Guardian describing the duo as “Descendants of TKZee”.
With serious critical acclaim, peer respect and a steadily expanding loyal following, Just Jabba is consistently proving himself. A song with the Kleva/Pantsula, Just Jabba AND the Haute Couture Pantsula’ Sandi Blouse, is bound to bring fond nostalgic memories to both the old and young and is definitely one to keep an eye out for.
