The rousing South African heist movie,’iNumber Number’, written and directed by Donovan Marsh, opened in cinemas on 25 April. The soundtrack for the film, a tale of undercover agents,dirty cops, armoured cars, vicious thieves and big money, is performed and produced by Israel Makoe, aka ‘Ma Orange’, is now available on global music subscription service Deezer, and is being hailed as a perfect reflection of the film itself: entertaining, revolutionary and effortlessly cool.

Describing the motivation behind the songs he wrote and performed for the soundtrack, actor, poet, singer and dancer Makoe, who also plays the role of hard-core gangster ‘Skroef’ in the film,says: “I was inspired by the reality of a hidden gang society that is seldom spoken about. The music reflects the storyline and the mood of the film.”

Makoe has appeared in a number of feature films, including ‘Four Corners’ (2013), ‘State of Violence’ (2010), ‘iIzululami’ (2008), ‘Tsotsi’ (2005) and ‘Drum’ (2004). He is also a well-known face on television and has starred in ‘Yizo Yizo’, ‘Gaz’lam’, ‘Zone 14’, ‘Zero Tolerance’, ‘Home Affairs’, and ‘Isidingo’.

‘iNumber Number’ is about a pair of cops battling corrupt colleagues as well as a gang of armoured-car thieves. The tracks include: iNumber Number, Umguluguthu, Amaroto, Chili & Shoes, and Skhoko. “The film has a unique sound, with the commercial tracks created by Israel Makoe counterpointed against an abstract and unusual score composed by acclaimed South African musician and composer Brendan Jury,” says Marsh. “The result is an incredibly atmospheric and authentic audio experience.”
