#Slyza         Tsotsi: Share your version!

When twins Major League DJ’s set out to revive interest in Kwaito through their collabo with Cassper Nyovest and Riky Rick, they had no idea what they were unleashing on the South African social media space.

It started with Cassper who, some four months ago, released a 15 second Instagram video of his own version of his own version of #SlyzaTsosti.
