AKA and YoungstaCPT’s Collaborative Single ‘Main Ou’s’ is Here, Accompanied by a Music Video

AKA and YoungstaCPT share 'Main Ou's.'

AKA and YoungstaCPT's collaborative single is finally out. Titled "Main Ou's," the song sees the two rappers rap a verse each over a trap instrumental.


AKA handles the hook, which combines rapping and singing with the aid of auto-tune.

"Main Ou's" is accompanied by visuals. AKA and YoungstaCPT filmed the video both in Joburg and Cape Town, as AKA's verse was filmed in Bryanston, while YoungstaCPT's one was shot in Wynberg at the headquarters of his company Y?Gen.

Just like with most of YoungstaCPT's videos, the community is involved—a group of young people joined the duo in the Cape Town scenes of the visuals which are the work of the company Studio Space Pictures.

A song between AKA and YoungstaCPT was long overdue. The two rappers had been speaking about being open to working with each other.

In March, AKA tweeted that he was in the studio with YoungstaCPT, further raising the anticipation from the two stars.

Highly anticipated songs or projects always run the risk of underwhelming fans when they finally get released. But, judging from fan's reactions, the song resonates, and can only get bigger from here.
