Listen to Cassper Nyovest’s New Trap Banger ‘Ksazobalit’

"Ksazobalit" is here.

South African rapper Cassper Nyovest just released the single he promised earlier this week. Titled "Ksazobalit," the song will definitely be a staple in clubs and radio.


It takes inspiration from Migos, with the hook delivered as a one-line chant. This has been Nyovest's style of hooks for his singles for a while; remember "Doc Shebeleza" and "Tito Mboweni."

"Ksazobalit" offers nothing new or mind-blowing from the rapper. He's flaunting his riches and telling his rags-to-riches story as usual, with lines like:

"I came up from the dirt/ and I tripled my worth/ It's a gift and a curse/ But it could have been worse"

This one is poised to get big; it ticks all the boxes of a Nyovest hit—a catch hook, lofty lines and a beat that knocks hard. And fans are already eating it up.

Femi explains: "'As We Struggle Everyday' is about how hard people work everyday to make ends meet and still go to vote corrupt politicians into power who are meant to be in jail."

Femi Kuti shares his new single, "As We Struggle Everyday," the latest drop from the upcoming double album Legacy +, a joint endeavor with his son Made Kuti.

Throughout the song, Femi sings "As we struggle everyday We try to find a better way See these leaders wey suppose jail Na him my people dem dey hail."

Femi explains: "'As We Struggle Everyday' is about how hard people work everyday to make ends meet and still go to vote corrupt politicians into power who are meant to be in jail."
