It seems there is no stopping for Dj Stavo whose latest video of the hit song “Teka Famba” is making waves on the dance scene. The Kwekwe-born music producer and DJ has roped in South African hottie Fiesta Black or simply FB who made headlines when she featured on DJ Ganyani’s chart topper “Xigubu”.

The sultry singer lays her vocals on “Teka Famba”, which loosely means take away in Shangani.

In the song, FB plays a gold digger with a wish-list and on the hunt for any man who can provide whatever is on that list whom she takes home like fast food.

“Teka Famba” video was shot last month in Johannesburg in a state-of-the art green room studio. We decided on this concept of a more modern look as Fiesta Black had already shot a traditional scene with Xigubu.

“I am really taking in all this experience of working with different artistes as it helps me grow in the industry. It’s also a dream come true to be working with an artiste that I am a fan of. They, too, love my work. It truly has been an honour,” DJ Stavo said

“Teka Famba” has already blown up on the social media scene as well as on radio stations around southern Africa.

The video appeals to a crossover audience because of its easygoing lyrics and the excellent camera work.

“Teka Famba” follows the success of another club banger titled “Ingoma” that features one of South Africa’s top artistes Mnqobi Mdabe aka Shota.

“Ingoma” was another bouncy track by Kwekwe Hustle record label lead artiste DJ Stavo, whose real name is Steven Sanders.

Shota made waves with his hit song “Ben 10” and has in the past released hit tracks like “Abantu Bami” and “Seng’Khathele” and which were well received by Zimbabwean fans.

DJ Stavo has worked with ExQ, MacDee, Cindy and Roki, to name just a few in his various songs that have endeared him to music fans not only in Zimbabwe but regionally.

His self-titled album carries tracks such as “Take Me There”, “I’m Not a Fool” and “Sweet Love”.

However, it was the video of “Mnandi”, featuring multi-award-winning South African kwaito star Mandoza that made DJ Stavo an even bigger success story.

The video was an instant hit on YouTube and popular satellite music station Channel O, where it was up for nomination due to its popularity.

“I did not even think that I would end up doing music one day,” DJ Stavo, once said having been a footballer for Chrome Stars and Midlands Cables in the late 1990s.

“I used to watch Mandoza’s ‘Nkalakatha’ on TV and played it as one of my favourite club songs, but now we are working together. Psyfo, Cndo, DJ Cleo and DJ Bobo are among many house and kwaito artistes that I have hosted here and exchanged notes with.”

DJ Stavo is one of a few cross-over music stars, able to work with artistes from any genre and to play for any type of audience.

He has also worked with South African artiste “Lolo the First Lady of Soul Candi” as well as DJ Fresh, Masingita, DJ Kentphonik.

His “Kwekwe Hustler” brand boasts a record label and a fashion line, which Stavo himself says is for the people of Kwekwe.
