K.O has finally unleashed the visuals for Fire Emoji featuring AKA. As we mentioned before, this is the second joint to come from K.O’s 2 track EP, Two Piece which features the joint with Cassper Nyovest, Waya Waya.
As mentioned before, Fire Emoji is right up Mr Forbes’ avenue. The beat is hella smooth and not the typical Skhanda sound but the bassline is kicking and may I add, memorable. K.O is as kick ass with the flow and honestly, makes this joint. AKA adds that Supa Mega clout to it.
The video for Fire Emoji is not the way we imagined it would be. The entire video is shot at night and on location. We see both K.O and AKA in the streets featuring scenes of graffiti on bridges and construction tape.
The mood of the video is intense and this is reinforced by the fact that the gents are wearing all black. The streets are empty and it seems like they have plans to take over the city judging by how powerful they look.
The video also features cameos form several of your favourite hip hop artists. Kid X, Kwesta, DJ Speedsta, Zingah and L-Tido. The gents from Teargas, Ntukza and Ma-E, also made a cameo and their appearance in this video had us praying that a reunion album is in the cards. Is it too soon to get excited?
Peep the video below!
NEW: Ganja Beatz- Night & Day Ft. Sjava, Sho Madjozi & Lady Zamar
Music producer, Ganja Beatz drops his star studded collabo song alongside Sjava, Sho Madjozi and Lady Zamar. It sounds weird right? Well the joint is titled Night & Day and it is an entire mood.
Night &Day is a strange track to be honest and it was difficult to get my head around it. The whole song seems disjointed and sort of separated into 3 different moods and atmospheres.
First we have Sjava who brings his raw and almost unfiltered truth packed in a skilful 16. It’s always refreshing Sjava on a wave that is not necessarily on that Afro-Trap tip. He always surprises me with his flow and subject matter.
The beat sort of breaks and we get a glimpse of what could be a hook, although this song doesn’t seem like it has a hook or some sort of chorus. Sho Madjozi does the most on it. Lady Zamar does a splendid job on this track and brings a dope level of international appeal. I honestly see Lady Zamar doing more than just dance music, she would also fair well in soul and RnB music.
Night & Day helps to show us a completely different side to the artists than what we would have seen otherwise. And the title and cover art illustrate this.
Ganja Beatz are a collective of super talented and dedicated producers who have gifted us some of the world class music over the last few years. This year alone they have worked with both established and up and coming artists including Cassper Nyovest, J Molley, youngsta CPT and Rouge to name but a few. Night & Day is just the beginning as we are in full swing of the last quarter of the year!
The single is available for purchase on all major digital stores.
