Now the musician is readying to release the third single off his new album titled, Abantu, featuring Nana Atta (Da Capo Remix). The release of the single comes as Zakes Bantwini continues to introduce fans to more Afro-tech summer hits with his collaborative single, Imali, led by label signee Karyendasoul. 

Currently, Zakes along with his team are working on the visuals for Osama, with Kasango. The visuals for the summer hit will be released ahead of Ghetto King, which goes live on all DSPS on Friday, 3 December 2021.

About Osama:

Osama begins with the referential theme song for hit television show, Knight Rider. The introduction is similar to the car as it transports the listener into the atmospheric world of the song. Instrumentally, the single builds into a cacophony of synthesised hi-hats and keys delivering an afro-electronic dance single.

Lyrically, Zakes Bantwini continues to use music to advance his ambition of a united African and global state. This is as the word osama, in urdu denotes lion, well-wisher or a helping hand. Bantwini layers his vocals with additional vocals to provide a single which sounds like a call to action.
