Listen to Mzekezeke’s New Gqom Single ‘Nay Lento’ Featuring Siya Shezi

How does Mzekezeke sound over a gqom beat?

Mysterious kwaito star Mzekezeke has a new song titled "Nay Lento." Never one to get left behind with trends, the new song sees the artist ride a gqom beat with his gnarly high-pitched voice.


The rapper Siya Shezi makes an appearance with an eight-bar verse.

Mzekezeke used to own December in his prime in the early and mid-2000s, it's only a matter of time till we see if he can still do it in 2018.

To promote the song, Mzekezeke sat down with DJ Sbu (ahem) for an interview in his show on Massiv Metro last week. More about that here.

Stream/download "Nay Lento" here.

Listen to Wizkid's Catchy New Track 'Gucci Snake' Featuring Slimcase

The highly anticipated track is finally here.

Wizkid has had a huge year, dropping a number of singles and unforgettable features, but he's not done yet.

Today, the Nigerian megastar has dropped the much-talked about single "Gucci Snake" featuring fellow Naija artist Slimcase. Wizkid had been teasing the highly-anticipated song throughout the year and it's finally here for fans to enjoy.

"Gucci Snake," is a catchy jam that sees Wizkid bragging over upbeat production. It's a departure from the mid-tempo vibes of many of his more recent singles like "Fever" and "Master Groove," which he released last month. This one is sure to be on rotation at all the parties as the holidays approach.

Early this month, the artist appeared on two tracks from star producer Metro Boomin's latest album, and according to the producer, we can expect more music from the two of them in the near future, which means we have even more Starboy to look forward to.

For now, listen to "Gucci Snake" below.
