Yanga Chief took to Twitter on Sunday, 27 October 2019, to engage with aspiring artists by encouraging them to record and share their own versions of the remix to his hit single, uTatakho.
The hip-hop artist took to social media to encourage his followers to download the instrumental version of the song from DJ D Double D’s North Side DJ Tools website, record their verses and submit them to Yanga Chief. In his post, the 200 hitmaker wrote, “If anybody wants to jump on the uTatakho remix, hit up DJ D Double D for the instrumental or DJ Pack. Tag me on [your remixes].”
One social media user suggested that in order for the challenge to have greater reach, the rapper could “post [the instrumental] and make a #utatakhochallenge.”
Other social media users tagged their friends and challenged them to write a verse that would win them the exposure they might receive if the verse is liked by Yanga Chief. One social media user, challenging their friend, wrote, “Waiting on you to murder this beat, son!”
Since launching the competition on his social media platforms, Yanga has only retweeted one remix from a Twitter user. The verse is from a rapper called Inverse and was first shared by rapper, Ginger Trill. Inverse recorded the verse using his phone and explained that he, “Couldn’t wait to get to the studio tomorrow.”
If anybody wanna jump on the uTatakho remix hit up @DJDdoubleD for the instrumental/ DJ Pack. Tag me on that shit.
