Da LES’ Fire voted best urban club hit for December 2013!

Popular club DJs, event promoters, and club owners, as well as urban music fans, were polled and came up with the best club hit for December 2013. Da LES’ Fire was voted best urban club hit for December 2013, with club DJs saying club goers voted it best hit song by the reaction and ladies singing along.

“Girl you got that fire” sings the song, a definite song for the ladies and they have taken control of the song.

Leslie (aka Les) J. Mampe Jnr., also known as the da L.E.S (i.e. Leslie Equals Success) to his many fans, was born in the US, Washington DC, lived in Texas, but the person who he has become was carved in the Muthaland by way of South Africa. 

Da L.E.S is by no means a new entrant to the entertainment scene through his music activities, in fact his first claim to fame came courtesy of his dancing abilities where he featured on shows like Sasco Sam and KTV.

“Fire is a result of me expressing how I am feeling about this summer and all the beautiful women that come out of the woodwork every festive season,” shares Da L.E.S.
His music exploits came into fruition when he hooked up with long time friend and brother from another mother Bongani Fassie. Bongani and Da L.E.S’s first musical endeavor came in the form of collaboration with Shemane, titled Shemane E.C.T. in 2004. Fast-forward to 2007 and L.E.S became a household name due to his participation with Jozi.

L.E.S forms one half of ultra super hip hop crew JOZI of the Muthaland Crunk and Wildlife fame. Muthaland Crunk went on to be nominated for a SAMA award, 4 Metro FM awards and a Channel O spirit of Africa award, in categories such as BEST GROUP and best HIP HOP. The group was also afforded the opportunity to perform at the recent 46664 concert held in December 2007.
In doing so the album launched the careers of three individuals with distinct personas who contributed different musical elements. All which were infused to create the Muthaland Crunk sound. Da L.E.S through Jozi has become recognized as one of the best emcee’s in the country.
The song is currently play listed on major radio stations such as Gagasi FMMetro FMYFM and more.
Da L.E.S is currently in LA shooting a music video for the club banger Fire.
