South Africa’s DJ SK sings “Pandemic,” a song featuring his compatriots Sim Kid & Mchingo Pe. You can stream it right here at UbeToo.
The idea behind the song is, of course, the coronavirus pandemic, which has paralyzed many industries and provoked radical improvisation in others. The music industry is deeply affected by the coronavirus with its concomitant lockdown measures.
“Pandemic” is didactic in part, but not cloying. The song will resonate with just about anyone who is a witness to the coronavirus pandemic, old or young. It is hard not to nurse a bond with this song really.
By the way, DJ SK and his pals are not the first to interrogate the coronavirus pandemic in a song. Other artistes, of South African provenance and elsewhere, have already sung about the pandemic. If you recall, we had shared a teaser of “Pandemic” song by gqom artistes Mshayi, Rhass and Mr Thela.
Of course we expect more artistes to treat similar theme until the world finally overcomes the coronavirus. Until a new banger drops, vibe with what’s in hand.
How would you rate the song on a scale of 0 to 10. We invite you to check it out below and join the conversation by dropping your thoughts in the comment section.
