Darkboy Masey addresses ‘Blessers’ on new track

Masego Ntshontsi, also known as Darkboy Masey, who has had a successful career as both a DJ and a music producer recently dropped a single which addresses the issue of ‘Blesser and blessee’.

The Blesser is a term that allegedly originated when several young women posted pictures of themselves shopping overseas, driving expensive cars or wearing expensive clothing. These women would then be   #blessed on social media. It seems the phenomenon has gone viral, with many young women looking for older men to sponsor their expensive lifestyles. But the men, some of whom are married, may be blessing more than one woman.

The new track features local artists such as Mingo, HT Tautona, Samba T, Noello and A.T.I. 

“I featured these artists because of their talent, experience and their huge fan base,” said Masey. The single was recorded at Bazamela Records and was produced by Risq – one of the most gifted local producers. The feel and flow of the single is influenced by the sound of kwaito, and the video will be shot end of June 2016.

The track entitled ‘Stocko le Magomsha’ is a feel good party song which discusses the gatherings and encounters between ‘Blessers and Blessees’. According to Masey, the song is a Blesser’s anthem touching on the complex issue of blesser’s in the society.

Each of the artists featured in the song describe a party scene where young females and gentlemen meet to have fun and the blesser’s entice the young females with their financial muscle.

Stocko le Magomsha is currently playing across all local radio stations and speaks to how young females are being enticed with material rewards for sexual gratification.

“I would like to urge the public to continue supporting local music for our industry to grow, “noted Masey.
