Max Hurrell's Zol has hit number 1 on the iTunes charts

and we've made you an hour long work out mix (FREE)

Update: 23 June 2020

 

MAX HURRELL x CAPETOWNMAG

South Africa's no.1 lockdown song has merchandise on sale, including masks and hoodies. “When people zol” by Max Hurrell has sparked so much joy in South Africa that we wanted to do our bit to help him spread it.

WIN 1 OF 5 SETS OF MERCH

When people zol, they can win 1 of 5 sets of Max Hurrell’s “When People Zol merch”. The competition closes Friday 26 June 2020 at 4pm. Winners will be announced at 8pm on Instagram Live. For details of how to enter, see our Instagram feed and Facebook page.

SPECIAL GIFT COUPON CODE

So, when you shop “When people zol” merch and spend R150 or more, you get a free “When people zol” mug. Use coupon code “capetownmag” in the checkout page of the official Max Hurrell merchandise site.

And then we thought we need to celebrate that with a mix that you can simply switch on and zone out (or in).

LISTEN TO THE YOUTUBE MIX
It’s the perfect earworm, so we made it longer. Listen to the song on repeat, when working out, during your (Zoom) office drinks or party. Listen to it exclusively on our Youtube page.

 

"THANK YOU FOR ENTERTAINING THE NATION"

Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma could never have imagined that her words would have such resonance with South Africa's youth. And now, nobody seems to be able to get them out of their heads. She's thanked Max Hurrell for "entertaining the nation". Brilliant.

THE TUNE HAS REACHED THE TOP OF THE CHARTS
After the minister’s address defending the tobacco ban, Max Hurrell, a South African music producer and DJ released the remix. The address was the perfect storm of South African humour, from Dlamini-Zuma’s use of the outdated slang term 'Zol', to her excellent miming of the action of rolling one. 

Hurrell laid her vocal sample over a track he described to the BBC as “house and afro with a driving and powerful bassline”, and we are here for it. So was the rest of the world, it seems because the tune topped iTunes charts less than two weeks after its release.

IT HAS INSPIRED MEME AFTER MEME
It inspired a new take on a classic Friends scene.

And a visual representation of Hurrell running from his problems.

Someone even taught the lyrics to the jam to their parrot.
