Apple Music Isgubhu Cover Star: DBN Gogo

Apple Music proudly unveils DBN Gogo as the newest cover star for the Isgubhu playlist. Showcasing her talents as an Amapiano producer and DJ. The playlist serves as a reflection of her musical journey. Featuring a mix of personal favorites and influential African dance classics. “This playlist is a reflection of who I am and the type of music I make, that inspires me and that I listen to,” she tells Apple Music. “It includes some of my favorite work that I’ve produced and some African dance classics that have influenced my sound and career.”

In an expression of gratitude, DBN Gogo acknowledges Apple Music for their unwavering love and support. Emphasizing her deep connection to the world of house music. “A big shoutout to my fam at Apple Music for all the love and support. Honored to be chosen for the second time. House is my home,” she tells Apple Music.

DBN Gogo, also known as Mandisa Radebe, draws inspiration from her rich cultural upbringing, rooted in Durban. However, her formative years in Pretoria, the birthplace of Bacardi, significantly influenced her eclectic sound. This cultural sponge effect is evident as she emerged as a willing ambassador, propelling Amapiano onto the global stage.

Since the release of her debut track “Khuza Gogo” in 2021, DBN Gogo has solidified her status as one of South Africa’s most unique and exciting artists. Her latest EP, “Click Bait” (2023), available on Apple Music, showcases her versatility within the Amapiano genre. This sonic atlas seamlessly incorporates elements of Afrotech and old-school EDM, demonstrating the adaptability of Amapiano.
