It’s high time we brought back the girl power – and a new South African girl group is doing just that. With a twist.

Girl groups have always been a thing – just look at the likes of TLC, the Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child.

So it’s high time we brought back the girl power – and a new South African girl group is doing just that. With a twist.

Meet SA’s first all-female rap crew – Klutch Kollective.

Award-winning hitmaker Toya Delazy saw the need for an all-female rap crew and joined forces with three of her University of Durban alumni who now form part of the four-member crew.

“It’s a humbling experience to finally see Klutch Kollective come to fruition,” the Love Is In The Air singer said. “I believe SA desperately needs a conscious hip-hop movement and I’m certain the collective voices of women will be able to achieve this.”

Toya’s pals DK, Fiah and Genius join her in the group – but they’re no strangers to local showbiz.

DK and Genius form two of only three women picked to participate in the 2015 Vuzu Hustle reality competition out of thousands of entries.

Genius also participated in SA Idols (Top 100), SA Pop Stars (Top 48) and made the Top 10 on Vuzu Hustle.

Fiah is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with. She has a number of film roles under her belt, including a principle role in Between Friends, a 2014 local box-office hit. She’s also the face of Ukhozi FM's new campaign, and the saucy, raspy voice behind SABC Encore's hip-hop theme track.

The Klutch Kollective has just released their debut single, Back To The Roots, which is now available for download.

The track speaks of getting back to the grassroots of hip-hop and is available as a FREE download for the next 24 hours only.
