News Brief

Cassper Nyovest And Davido’s Collabo ‘Check On You’ Is Here

New banger from Cassper Nyovest and Davido.

In mid-January, Cassper Nyovest and Davido revealed they were working on some music together.

Less than a month later, the song is here, and it comes with a video, too.


Titled "Check On You," the track draws from the two artist's influences. "Check On You" is a hybrid of afrobeat and South African house, with some sprinkles of rap and pop.

It's dance floor-ready and will highly likely blow up. Nyovest's dual personality of a rapper and a pantsula, bleeds through—he raps his verses, and on the bridge, renders some kwaito-style vocals and adlibs.

The video is shot in a mansion that stands in what looks like the northern suburbs of Joburg. Like with most pop music videos, there are plenty of scantily dressed women making apperances.
