Listen to Flex Rabanyan’s Latest Addictive Single ‘Wadlala Ngam’’

It might make you cry, but you'll love it.

KZN rapper Flex Rabanyan is gearing up to release his debut album after winning the second season of the Vuzu TV's The Hustle in 2017.


His latest single proves the rapper's versatility. It's a departure from a majority of his songs that were laden with bravado and flexing of skills.

"Wadlala Ngam'" sees the lyricist croon some sing-songy raps drenched in mild autotune over mellow keys and a mid tempo rhythm. He speaks of a lover who did him dirty after he had invested all his emotions in the relationship. Can't say we all haven't been there.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
