Listen to Emtee’s New Single ‘Smogolo’

Emtee just released his first single of the year.

"Smogolo" is Emtee's first single of 2019. The artist last released the music video for "Abantu," a song from his EP DIY 2, which came out last year.


"Smogolo" features little to no rapping, as the artist sings throughout. The song is produced by Kreazo, who produced a large amount of DIY 2, and it features Snyman, who also appeared on DIY 2, most notably on "Abantu."

"Smogolo" is a quintessential ATM (African trap music) song, as it blends genres such as trap, Afropop and a bit of mbhaqanga and maskandi.

It's not clear if the song is part of an upcoming project at the moment.
