Cassper Nyovest has shared stunning visuals for single “Bonginkosi” featuring Zola 7 from his latest studio album A.M.N. The rapper keeps on his winning prowl with this latest visual escapade.
The visuals for “Bonginkosi” are simply heavenly and calming. Cassper Nyovest and Zola 7 look like two gangsta angels in matching white suits and Nike Air Force Ones. The song is one of thanksgiving, but the two artists give it an edge that no other gospel song has. The video is largely shot in a bare white studio and transitions to visuals of the sea and Black women worshipping in church.
“Bonginkosi” was released in August, and it quickly became a hit with fans. The collaboration with Zola 7 is quite apt considering the kwaito legend’s real name is Bonginkosi. Zola 7 has a reputation for being raw and real with his music. He dominated the kwaito scene for several years with his music, and is p working on a new album.
Zola 7’s emergence can be likened to American rapper 50 Cent’s hip-hop entry. Both artists broke into the industry with real-life bad boy enigma that encapsulated the difficulties of living in the hood or in the case of South Africa, the township. “Bonginkosi” reveals Zola 7 as a new clean being, and die hard fans of his are pleased to see him in this new light.
Cassper, like most, South African hip-hop artists, likes to pay homage to kwaito. He rose to fame with “Doc Shebeleza” his first song to reference the titular kwaito don. A.M.N has been number one on charts for the last four weeks. Singles “Amademoni” and “Good for That” have been certified gold and platinum respectively.

Stonebwoy features Family in latest video “Ever Lasting” – [WATCH HERE]
Stonebwoy – Ghana’s shining Black Star has for years been consistent with his music and international growth, making beautiful music with some of the world’s leading A-list musicians of our time. His latest 5-star project “Anloga Junction” is a complete body-of-work set apart by its intentionality with regards to features, music structuring and song compositions.
In a bid of celebrating the successes chalked so far in the last six months since the project was made available for public’s consumption, and a mechanism arrayed to intensify its promotion, the Chief Executive Officer of Burniton Music Group (BMG) has premiered the official visual interpretation of one of the bangers on the album, “Ever Lasting”.
The energetic black & white visuals feature the family, including the wife, Dr. Louisa Satekla and daughter, Catherine Jidula (CJ) and son, Livingstone Jnr. The audio is a party vibe mixed with the African spice to make every listener want put on their dancing shoes. The construction of the chorus is superbly crafted as he mixes his tribal language with English and how it blends together to make a perfect sound. The beautiful piece celebrates, adore and acknowledge the strength of women.
Over the last 3 three years, CJ. has grown to become the public’s favorite young “celebrity”. With a monumental social media presence of about 70,000 followers on Instagram at just 3, the first child of the Ghanaian born reggae & dance-hall musician is the brand ambassador of The Kid Cart – a shopping centre where kids clothing, learning and educational resources can be bought at an affordable price.
She’s on her own path. CJ. is often seen showing off her dancing moves or posing for the camera before her dance lessons. It doesn’t stop there, she also loves doing crafts, learning and making her own renditions of his father’s songs. With her obvious keen interest in creative arts, it is of high possibility she will “wear her father’s shoe”.
UK/ Stonebwoy And ZieZie Are The Guest Artistes On Wauve’s “Pamela” Song [WATCH VIDEO]
Tomorrow, October 23, North London producer and artist Wauve, aka Robeal Yohannes, will release his debut EP Shade. Although he describes himself as a producer first and a singer a distant second, if the EP’s new single “Pamela”, which features Afrobeats stars ZieZie and Stonebwoy is anything to go by, we can’t help but feel like he’s being a bit hard on himself. Stream song here: https://wauve.lnk.to/ShadeEPIN
Having found a deeper connection to his Eritrean roots as he’s grown up, Wauve’s music is leaning more and more into that East African influence, taking pentatonic scales and homegrown rhythms and blending them into the traditionally West African Afrobeats sound. Add to that a touch of the R&B and trap that first inspired him to make music and the result is light and breezy sound that takes Afrobeats into new territories that should probably be explored a bit more.
Hit play at the top to see Wauve, ZieZie and Stonebwoy cut loose in the barbers while they try to catch the attention of the titular heroine.

Koffee Drops “Pressure” Visuals With Additional Verse From Buju Banton
Back in August, Koffee liberated the new single “Pressure,” which saw an accompanying live performance visual courtesy of Highsnobiety for their “Not In Paris” feature. This week, the Jamaican star drops off a new visual for the track’s remix, which sees an additional verse from dancehall/reggae legend Buju Banton:
“From wi born ina di struggle isolated inna bubble what law fi di rich yet another fi di poor, Jah bless and please help us we caan take no more, we feeling di pressure way down to di core/”
“How money fi deh ya wen dem sen it offshore? An every nation come ya get rich and we stay poor, dem show you twenty dollar weh go through di back door, tell dem, tell dem seh we caan tek no more!/”
“Under the pressure, under the pressure, yeah, under the pressure, under the pressure, yeah, if yuh poor, trouble tek you, when yuh rich it nuh settle/”
The visual contains shots of beautiful black men, women, and families, all of whom are surely going through their own trials and tribulations (as we all are). In addition to that, Koffee and Banton are seen performing the powerful cut in different locations as footage of protests in lieu of systemic racism are happening all over the world.
“Pressure” follows another dope cut titled “Lockdown,” which was released in July. Prior to that, Koffee liberated the EP Rapture in March last year, which saw five tracks and a single feature from Jane Macgizmo. Meanwhile, Buju Banton released Upside Down 2020 in June, his first since his release from prison in 2018 that saw 20 cuts and additional appearances from Stephen Marley, John Legend, Pharrell Williams, and Stefflon Don. His last official project, Before The Dawn, was released in 2010.
