Watch The Music Video For Duncan and Thee Legacy’s Collaboration ‘Sikelela’

Duncan shares the visuals for his collaboration with Thee Legacy.

Durban rapper Duncan collaborated with the group Thee Legacy for the heartfelt song "Sikelela." In the song, the rapper plays an observer to the complexities between bad and good, the uncertainty and contradictions that define life as we know it.


He raps about those whose success was built on others' pain, those who played life by the rules but still got nowhere, two-faced friends, and several other examples of how harsh and confusing life can be.

Thee Legacy are the millennial answer to Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Their style resembles that of the legendary acappella group. For the hook "Sikelela," they do a rendition of the South African national anthem, which asks the creator for blessings on the continent's behalf.

The music video for "Sikelela" depicts some of the scenarios Duncan raps about.

Nigerian Government Barred From Prosecuting Twitter Users

The Court of Justice of the Economic Community of West African States has ordered the Nigerian government to refrain from prosecuting Twitter users, while it considers the case brought to it by civil society organisations and journalists.

Activists and journalists took the Nigerian government to court to challenge the recent Twitter ban, asking "the court to declare the indefinite suspension of Twitter a continuous violation of their human rights under the international law." As it stands the ban threatens to criminalise the 40 million Twitter users in the country.

According to Socio-Economic Rights And Accountability Project (SERAP), a Nigerian NGO, the court ruled that no person should be "sanctioned, harassed, intimidated, arrested or prosecuted for using Twitter in Nigeria.The ruling also means that tech companies must immediately restore people's access to Twitter as a matter of human right."

"The court has listened very well to the objection by Nigeria. Any interference with Twitter is viewed as inference with human rights. This will violate human rights. Nigeria must take immediate steps to implement this order," the court ruling stated.
