South Africa’s burgeoning music scene has experienced an extreme shift in the last 18 months, but this hasn’t stopped local talent from pushing through, innovating their style, and staying connected to their fans. In celebration and support of their efforts, Texx Talks and Jägermeister will focus on South Africa’s brightest musical talents for Season 6 of Texx Talks.
Launched in 2020 by Tecla Ciolfi (fondly known as Texx), Texx Talks is a global, chart-topping music podcast “where musicians share their highs, lows and the secret to their continued successes, in frank, deep-dive discussions.” S6’s line-up of SA talent includes Dee Koala, Francois van Coke, Focalistic, Rouge, DBN Gogo, Peach van Pletzen, Reason HD, and Que (ex Distruction Boyz).
Over the years, Jägermeister has benevolently become a staple in the entertainment industry and according to the brand’s latest campaign – “Meisters disrupt!” In the premiere episode of S6 Dee Koala is the prime example of this kind of disrupter. When she made her debut onto the scene with 4 The Khaltsha, she came out loud and hot, and her talent as an MC scored her a SA Hip-Hop Award in the Best Female category in 2020.
For musicians, there are many times where being authentic to your identity is cause for pause where big corporations are concerned. Interestingly, and thankfully, all of the “wild” or “crazy” moments that have made these artists incredible, are what makes them Meisters and what makes their work even better.
In S6 of Texx Talks, listeners will get the chance to dive and dig deep into the lives of the people responsible for excellence and musical glory around SA. Tune into Texx Talks every Thursday and get first-hand creative road maps on how to #BeTheMeister.
