DJ Maphorisa's 'Makhe' Will Be Your New Anthem

Watch the new music video for the gqom banger "Makhe" featuring DJ Shimza & Moonchild Sanelly.

South African producer DJ Maphorisa—the man behind many a hit for the likes of Drake, Kwesta, Shekhinah and others—recently dropped the excellent BlaqBoyMusic EP.

The gqom banger "Makhe," which sees him join forces with Moonchild Sanelly and DJ Shimza, isn't on that recent EP, but on the equally good BlaqBoy Music Presents Gqom Wave, which you should also check out.

Maphorisa is now releasing the new visual for the highly infectious "Makhe," a song that follows Moonchild Sanelly as she tells a neighbor (makhe) to stop trying to make moves on her as she's not interested. The song also helps tell a South African narrative of men who pose as just "neighbors" in public, but will use any excuse to be more than that behind closed doors, his team mentions.
