DJ Tira has made it clear that he's in the Mzansi music industry to stay.
This year, the star celebrates 21 successful years in the highly competitive industry.
The star is releasing an EP titled 21 Years Of DJ Tira to commemorate the momentous occasion.
The record will be in stores on 26 June.
Tira took to Twitter to say, "Ayivulwe icountry (Open up the country)," as he made the exciting announcement.

Tira's real name is Mthokozi Khathi and he was born in Kwazulu-Natal on 24 August, 1976.
In 1996, Tira developed an interest in being a DJ while he was still in varsity, at which point he started playing as a DJ.
In 2008, the star released his first solo project named Ezase Afro Vol:1.
When he's not busy with music, it appears Tira nuses some political aspirations.
Last week, Briefly.co.za reported that Tira had hinted he might be interested in filling the position of Minister of Arts and Culture.
Of course, the muso also does his fair share of giving back.
Aside from constantly breaking new names, including Q-Twins, under his Afrotainment record label, Tira also routinely gives freebies like electricity to fans.
