It’s been too long since I’ve done a music post. I love everything about this music video from Mafikizolo! I love the West African influence fused with Mzansi Afro house beats, the Ndebele village setting, the gorgeous dresses by singer Nhlanhla Nciza and the super funky dance moves by Joburg’s hottest dance group, The Vintage Cru.
Mafikizolo ft Uhuru – Khona
”Khona”is a Zulu word meaning ‘there’ or ‘at that place’. The song’s meaning is rather sad, euphemising death and broken hearts and calls for people that are on the other side to come back. For more on the lyrics read this post.
Mafikizolo – Kwela
If you didn’t grow up dancing to Mafikizolo, here’s one of their classic tracks, Kwela, which references the Sophiatown swing sounds of South Africa in the ’60s.
Too much love for Mafikizolo and their awesome Mzansi music!
