Cashtime Life Double Shot: Ma-E's 'uGOGO' + KiD X's 'Pass n Special'

Watch South African Cashtime Life members Ma-E's 'uGOGO' and KiD X's 'Pass n Special.'


Right after the unrivalled coup of K.O.’s KiD X-assisted single “Caracara” (which opened up Spoek Mathambo's Cava The Combo SA rap mix), South African hip-hop collective Cashtime Life (K.O, Ma-E, Ntukza, AB Crazy, Kid X, Smashis) unleashes more hit single prospects. KiD X’s “Pass n Special” and Ma-E’s “uGOGO” have recently been treated with visuals on the same day. Both songs pay homage to old school kwaito songs just like “Caracara” did. Ma-E’s video takes the “when the cat is away, the mice will play” route. The song's hook and video concept were both lifted off Mzekezeke’s “Akekh’ ugogo,” making reference to turning up while ugogo (granny) is away. Ma-E invites a legion of friends to party up while his mother is out. When she returns, she joins in on the fun. KiD X’s “Pass n Special,” which gives a node to kwaito legend Mdu’s “No Pass, No Special,” is also one for the good times. Kicking lazy flows over a minimalistic woozy backdrop, KiD X passes time with his boys and girls under the lukewarm Joburg autumn sun. Watch both videos below and look out for cameos from the likes of Ms Cosmo, Maggz, K.O., Slikour, and Riky Rick (among others). Cashtime, tsotsi for life!

Focalistic Shares Visuals For ‘Ke Star (Remix)’ Featuring Vigro Deep and Davido

Watch the music video for 'Ke Star (Remix)' by Focalistic, Vigro Deep and Davido.

After sharing the remix to "Ke Star" last week Friday, Focalistic has followed-up with the song's visuals. The video show performance scenes by the two musicians flanked by dancers. The visual is stunning as everyone who appears is dripped up, and the dancers make sure the viewer never takes their eye off the screen.

The remix for "Ke Star" is hopefully a move that kickstarts Pitori Maradona's continental dominance. Amapiano as a sound has proven popular in many parts of the continent and some parts of the world. Davido is one non-South African musician who has embraced the sound which can be heard in his latest album A Better Time.
