Gaba Cannal Enlists Busiswa in New Amapiano Banger ‘Umhlaba Wonke’

Listen to Gaba Cannal and Busiswa's new collaboration 'Umhlaba Wonke.'

Busiswa has achieved longevity in the South African music scene because of her ability to shapeshift and adapt to the country's ever-changing music climate.

While in the last few years she became synonymous to gqom when the genre was at its peak, the artist has been appearing on amapiano songs sounding like money.


"Umhlaba Wonke" by the producer Gaba Cannal is the latest amapiano song Busiswa has appeared in, and she doesn't only sound at home, but she dominates it with her lively personality and poise in her delivery and writing.

"Umhlaba Wonke" is a soulful song that's built on lush pads and the customary bassline you hear on most amapiano songs. Mellow keys and subtle synths contribute to the richness of the production.

Gaba Cannal is one of the country's most respected young producers and he has forged a path and built a name for himself in the country's music scene especially deep house and recently amapiano.

"Umhlaba Wonke" is one of the first amapiano songs of 2020 after the subgenre had a massive year in 2019 and dominated dancefloors across the country. It might be January, but it's still summer, so amapiano still has a place in your playlist.

Tems Is Just Doing Her Thang In New Music Video 'Crazy Tings'

The Nigerian songstress is hell bent on taking over your summer playlist and it's getting harder to resist.

It has been a fantastic year for Tems. The Nigerian singer, producer, and songwriter achieved a platinum record for eternal banger Essence, her collaboration with fellow Nigerian superstar Wizkid, an MTV EMA nomination for Best African Artist, a billion worldwide video views, and over 350 million audio streams. Not to mention featuring on Canadian rapper Drake's blowout album Certified Lover Boy, the singer has also sold out every show she's booked.

The release of Tems's sophomore EP If Orange Was a Place solidified her place amongst the greats and it was received with gusto by fans and international audiences. A month after the release the Afrobeats singer has graced fans with a sultry music video to go along with equally as tantalizing lead single Crazy Tings. Conceptualized by the multitalented Tems, and directed by UAX, the music video follows a sensual Tems as she sings about needing space from a lying partner.

International audiences continue to rave over the songstress, with Tems delivering an impressive US TV debut on late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! this month. Essence continues to top international charts. While becoming the official song of the summer, the track peaked on the Billboard 100 Top 10, becoming the most Shazamed song in the United States and was remixed by Canadian musical heavyweight Justin Bieber, becoming the first song written by Nigerian artists to hit No.1 on Urban Radio.

Tems has been producing consistent hits since her debut in September 2020, and a year later, the singer's immense talent is securing her reputation as a world-class superstar.
