Watch AKA and Yanga Chief's Music Video For 'Jika'

AKA and his frequent collaborator Yanga Chief are grown up versions of themselves in the music video for "Jika" (think Kanye West and 88 Keys on the video for "Stay Up (Viagra)").


And, as you might have noticed, some senior citizen love having a good time and just being life goals, AKA and Yanga do just that. AKA, sticking to the song's storyline, is wooing a woman who he says he wants to get old with.

There is also a scene shot in the streets of Durban with women dressed in bikinis, as AKA and Yanga perform their collaborative tune.

"Jika" is a single from AKA's latest album, 2018's Touch My Blood. Watch the music video below, and click here for more AKA coverage.
