South African rapper Siyabonga Metane, known as Slikour, took listeners back to the good old days of Skwata Kamp, while talking the SABC's 90% local music quota.
Twitter went lit when Slikour played 'uMoya' song, a big single by Africa's first Hip Hop group, Skwata Kamp.
He also played 'Umsindo', from his second single album, Ventilation Mixtape Vol. 2 in 2007.
Anyone who knows Slikour would have expected that he would touch on the South African music industry. He spoke to Sipho Sithole, founder of Native Rhythms and McDonald Netshitendze, chief director of policy and legislation at the DTI, about what the 90% quota for local music means.

Before 'the state of South African music' talks, the question of how land redistribution should take place dominated the #OpenLine. Slikour gave listeners an opportunity to share their thoughts regarding the issue.
He closed-off the show on a high note with musical comedian, Deep Fried Man, in studio ‘rapping’ up the week’s stories ahead of his show, ‘A musical comedy extravaganza’ at the Lyric Theater this weekend.
Slikour thanked Phemelo Ngcobo, his 'co-pilot', for holding his hand during the show.
