There is no doubt that Naakmusiq is an incredible talent; the guy can sing and act plus he is quite a looker. The Afrotainment singer recently released the visuals for his song, Mamelani, a song produced by Prince Bulo.
Naakmusiq dropped this song back in July this year and this immediately caught our attention because it is a little departure from the song that we are used to. Mamelai is what you would get if House and Gqom had a baby with an Afro-Soul edge that is fitting for Naakmusiq.
The song has that “call to action” type of feel to it where Naakmusiq is urging everyone to listen, unite and take action. It’s both a feel good joint but also a fierce one designed for the dancefloor.
He is featured wearing traditional Xhosa attire, looking every bit a powerful chief and also features men dressed in Zulu attire and they look like they are ready for war.
When the song dropped, he told Channel 24: “Mamelani is a Gqom song. It’s a Gqom track with a touch of soul and the song goes hand in hand with a TV series I am doing, iGazi. Where I play a Xhosa king, and the message is that everyone must unite and love one another through music”.
The video for Mamelani is quite refreshing and sees Naakmusiq in the rural area with breathtaking mountains as the backdrop. The scenery is beautiful and makes the video for the song stand out because the concept is not typical. This is one beautifully shot video.

NEW MUSIC: Eastern Cape Rapper, Nate, Drops Gotta Get It Ft. MSA
Self proclaimed South Coast King, Hip Hop sensation, Nate, has dropped new single for his fans titled Gotta Get It. This is the second single to come from the charismatic rapper and it features his frequent collaborator and producer, MSA.
What exactly is Gotta Get It about?
Gotta Get It, produced by MSA, is a song about overcoming life struggles and making Mom proud through the trials and tribulations of chasing the dream. Nate once again shows his skills both as a hook master accompanied by the impeccable delivery of flawless verses.
The MSA produced beat serves as a fitting canvass for Nate’s message and hunger to succeed. The Trap inspired and fast paced beat is a perfect head banger and we have to admit that MSA and Nate are often a great pair on any song. Plus this type of song is what we have known Nate to produce in the past.
Nate has quite an impressive resume which stretches over the past couple of years he has been making music. He has released a number of singles which have highlighted his growing musical skill, effortless flows and catchy hooks. The Trap influenced Rolly and the laid back Friendzone featuring Zola and Ngeke Balunge are just a few of his songs. Plus his growing fan base cannot get enough of him!
Bringing a fresh approach in the music scene with his authentic trap flows, a lot can be expected from Nate this year. We can expect new music as well as his debut album in the last quarter of 2018.
Keep up to date to with Nate on his social media, @nate_rsa, for more updates on his music.
