Watch ByLwansta’s Music Video for ‘The Bike Song’

ByLwansta shares visuals for his latest single 'The Bike Song.'

ByLwansta shared "The Bike Song" last week. The song is a single from his upcoming EP SPIJØNGET (Chapter Two), which will be released on the 28th of February.


"The Bike Song" details a robbery which the young rapper was a victim of in the Joburg CBD. The visuals, which are minimalist, show ByLwansta—well, you guessed it—riding a bike. The clip consists mostly of performance scenes from the emcee, who's expression goes beyond words but facial expressions, antics and mem-worthy poses.

"The Bike Song" is the lead single to SPIJØNGET (Chapter Two), a follow-up to SPIJØNGET (Chapter One), a project the Durban-based rapper released around the same time last year.

The SPIJØNGET series of EPs will culminate in a full project after the third iteration. The project sees the rapper update his fans about his life. On the first iteration, the most prevalent subject was his romantic relationship. We wait to hear what is new in ByLwansta's life, except finding a bike ride therapeutic after a robbery, which we will find out on Chapter Two.

ByLwansta is one of the most notable emcees in South Africa's alternative hip-hop scene. He was the first ever South African artist to appear on A Colors Show when he performed his cult classic "Lindiwe" on the show in 2017.
