This year, once again, Stilo Magolide comes out with another banger modestly titled Yasho from his critically acclaimed debut album Tropicana Jiiig, which landed at number 3 upon release.
It takes a certain type of skill to articulate and produce an anthem especially in an industry as competitive as the SA Hip Hop industry. Staying unique to your sound and distinct elements is usually the greatest challenge, however not everyone has that 2190 swang in their arsenal now, do they…? Yasho (Yeah Sure).
Yasho is a colloquial term mostly used in the townships of South Africa. You go to the south side of Johannesburg and what do the boys say as a stamp of approval? YASHO!!! When the girls love your swag, what do they say? YASHO!!!
YASHO is a way of life and communication amongst people who understand where they come from and the vibes they create. Stilo on this song embraces that togetherness of Township life and the essence of enjoying life as people.
This is a banger that Stilo Magolide uniquely created for the streets and if you going to ignore it this summer, good luck for you. The 6’s will be up in the air with this anthem with every kasi representative giving props to the tropics beaming all summer long.
Yasho is the second single to be taken from the album, Tropicanna Jiig, which is still available for purchase on iTunes. and all major digital platforms.
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!
