Durban Stand Up: AvGang Set Things Straight On New Single ‘NEWS’

Another day, another poppin’ track straight outta Durban. On Friday Avengers Gang, abbreviated to AVgang dropped a heater of a joint that may or may not be directed at players involved in the conversation that occurred on the Twitter-sphere last week, about who is responsible for putting the city on the map.

If you aren’t familiar with what’s been going down in the DBN, you can put yourself on by clicking here. For those that are, some a lot of the lines on the blazing track ‘News’ will make more sense. Breeze of AvGang has assured that the song is not a diss track but from the second part of that statement and going by the content of the music, at the least ‘News’ is a clear warning shot to those threatening to misrepresent the city (no names mentioned).


Responses on social media have ranged from surprise, to support and various commentary from fans and peers. Of the peers, Aewon who is adamant that he is not interested in any kind of rivalry and is here to support his city, may have also had indirectly had a thought or two to share.


AvGang is a rap collective of DBN rappers comprising of @BEAST_RSA @MXsouthafrica @Champ_tile @HCLegendary @inseezy .
