From K1 to the world, Kwesta brings us his latest and most anticipated joint, Spirit, featuring Nigerian-born- American rapper, Wale. The Raplyf boss finally hit us with the spirit bomb and we were never ready.
Some are hailing it the song of the summer and some are just glad that DaKar made Wale whyle out on a Kwaito beat and that was enough for them. Spirit comes after days of build up and anticipation when Kwesta dropped a snippet of the joint along with the one he handled with Tory Lanez and rumoured to also feature Rick Ross and J. Balvin.
Kwesta is the king of versatility because he is pretty much able to own any type of beat without losing his own identity as an artist. He handled Spirit and unsurprisingly shined on it. The hook is infectious; he pulls through with some memorable punches and practically owned the song like a boss. Wale on the other hand did not disappoint; he rocks hard on this one, switches masterful flows and keeps the pace tight.
The beat was handled by the award winning Makwa 6eats, Kwesta’s producer who has made most of Kwesta’s previous hits. We loved the fact that he represented our country and our culture by nor compromising on the beat and the language.
Twitter responded to the song and the consensus is that it is a hit! Peep some of the responses below!

NEW VIDEO: AKA Drops Fully Monochrome Visuals For #FullyIn
Since dropping his highly anticipated third and last album, Touch My Blood, AKA has been on our lips. The album lives up to all the hype and so does the visuals that accompany it. Today, Supa Mega finally dropped the visuals for his latest single, Fully In.
What makes AKA an exceptional South African artist is not only his use of classic and nostalgic drum patterns and baselines in his music. Songs like Amen and Caiphus Song sound familiar and remind us of a time we have long forgotten. It is also not the use of vernac here and there. What makes him unique is his use of classic South African references in his rhymes.
Fully In is the 7th track to be taken off Touch My Blood and it’s the 3rd music video to come from AKA this year. The joint is about him being fully invested in himself, his music and the game. AKA is firmly on his game on this one with the chant-like hook and the on pace flow giving this song a vibrant feel.
Shot entirely in monochrome, the video is highly energetic and sees AKA engage and interact with the locals. The black and white aspect of it makes the video feel timeless yet contemporary feel.
Peep the video below!
