The Johannesburg Rock band and SAMA nominee, Oooth, led by Jason Oosthuizen joins forces with South African musical icon and Lifetime Achievement Award recipient P. J Powers, Thandeka, to bring you the ultimate summer nights of rock and PJ’s greatest Afropop hits.
Watch It’s Quite Simple here –
P. J Powers, born Penelope Jane Dunlop in Durban, South Africa in 1960, made her debut as a vocalist with the all-girl group “Pantha” in 1979. She then fronted the rock group “Hotline” from 1980 through to 1987, when she launched her solo career.
Expect all-time favourites by Thandeka like ‘World in Union’, ‘This Life’ and ‘Jabulani’ meet Oooth’s rocking backline and hits like ‘Sunshine’ and ‘Loving You’. This promises to be a tour not to be missed.
Put on your dancing shoes, as they say, ‘it’s about to go down’. The tour begins in Cape Town on Wednesday the 29th September 2021.

Q: Who is Oooth? Oooth is a rock band and passion project by well-known SA Musician Jason Oosthuizen (previous drummer for Van Coke Kartel and Lost&Found). The band has been active since November 2018. Jason, although known for being one of the best drummers in SA, wanted to try his hand at being a lead singer and guitarist and has enjoyed it ever since.
Q: When was It’s Quite Simple released? The song was released 9 August 2021, on National Women’s Day
Q: Why did you choose PJ Powers for the colab? Jason has always been a fan and took a lucky shot to do a collab with one of his local heroes and was honoured when she said, ‘yes’.
Q: Do you have other tracks that you featured her besides It’s Quite Simple? No, just this one track
Q: How was it collaborating with a living legend? It was so amazing from the start. As a big SA Icon, I expected an entirely different experience. From the get go she was all in and as excited and passionate as I was about the song. I could not have asked for a better first colab.
