KZN traditional healer warns DJ Tira
KZN traditional healer warns DJ Tira.Alright folks, it’s time for a little entertainment news! So, DJ Tira has landed himself in some hot water with a traditional healer by the name of Mkhulu 3 Seconds.
Apparently, Mkhulu is not too pleased with Tira’s use of the phrase “Isiqalile iyagqilaza lento manje” which translates to “things are heating up now.”
Mkhulu is a serious guy and he’s issued a stern warning to the DJ. He’s demanding that Tira seek his permission before using the phrase again, otherwise, he’ll be cursed.
Yikes! That’s some serious stuff. Mkhulu even wants Tira to come to his indumba, which is basically a traditional hut, and apologize for using the phrase without his permission.
But wait, it gets even better.
Mkhulu has threatened to turn the phrase against Tira if he doesn’t comply. That’s right, he’ll put a curse on him and make him come and look after his goats.

Now, I don’t know about you, but looking after goats doesn’t sound like the worst thing in the world. I mean, they’re cute and all, but I’m pretty sure Tira has better things to do with his time.
But let’s give Mkhulu some credit, he’s not just targeting Tira. He’s coming after anyone who uses his phrases without permission. So, if you’re thinking of dropping some traditional Zulu phrases in your next song or conversation, you better think twice.
Mkhulu is not playing around.
Of course, DJ Tira had to weigh in on this situation. And what did he have to say for himself? Well, he laughed it off, of course. Classic Tira.
He’s not too worried about the curse or looking after goats, it seems. But hey, maybe he’ll think twice before using someone else’s phrase without permission in the future.
All joking aside, though, it’s important to respect traditional cultures and their practices.
Mkhulu is obviously very passionate about his language and his beliefs, and it’s important to acknowledge and respect that. So, while this story may seem a bit humorous on the surface, let’s not forget the underlying message.
And who knows, maybe this whole situation will inspire Tira to collaborate with Mkhulu on a new track. I mean, can you imagine a traditional healer and a famous DJ teaming up for a hit song? That’s the kind of crossover we need in 2023.
All you need to know about DJ Tira
Oh boy, where do I even begin with DJ Tira? The man is an absolute legend in the South African music scene.
He’s been shaking up dance floors and clubs for over two decades now, and his impact on the industry cannot be overstated.
Born Mthokozi Khathi in 1976 in the KwaHlabisa village in KwaZulu-Natal, Tira’s love for music started at a young age.
He would often listen to his father’s vinyl records and was particularly drawn to the sounds of mbaqanga, a genre of South African music that blends traditional Zulu rhythms with modern instruments.
But it wasn’t until Tira moved to Durban to attend university that he truly found his calling.
He started DJing at local clubs and parties, and it didn’t take long for his skills on the turntables to catch people’s attention.
Tira’s energetic sets and unique blend of house and kwaito music quickly made him a crowd favorite.
In 2000, Tira formed the group Durban’s Finest with fellow DJ Sox. The duo quickly gained a following and released several successful albums. But it wasn’t until Tira went solo in 2005 that he truly became a household name.
That year, Tira released his debut album “Real Makoya,” which included the hit single “Ngihamba Nawe.” The song was an instant classic and catapulted Tira to superstardom.
He became one of the most sought-after DJs in the country and his popularity only continued to grow from there.
Over the years, Tira has released numerous hit albums, including “Ezase Afro,” “Ikhenani,” and “21 Years of DJ Tira.”
His unique sound, which blends kwaito, house, and traditional Zulu rhythms, has made him one of the most influential figures in the South African music scene.
But Tira’s impact extends beyond just his music. He’s also been instrumental in launching the careers of several up-and-coming artists, including Babes Wodumo and Tipcee.
Tira founded the record label Afrotainment in 2009, and it has since become one of the most successful and influential labels in the country.
In addition to his music career, Tira is also a successful businessman. He owns a number of businesses, including a construction company and a record store. He’s also a brand ambassador for several companies, including Sprite and Axe.
Despite his success, Tira remains humble and grounded. He’s known for his infectious smile and positive attitude, and he’s beloved by fans and colleagues alike. He’s also a devoted husband and father, and he often shares photos and videos of his family on social media.
But perhaps what makes Tira truly special is his commitment to giving back to his community. He’s involved in several charitable organizations, including the Tira Foundation, which provides scholarships and other opportunities to underprivileged youth in KwaZulu-Natal.
In short, DJ Tira is a true icon. He’s not just a talented musician, but also a savvy businessman, devoted family man, and philanthropist. He’s a true inspiration to us all, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us next
