AKA, The Big Hash and Emtee Join Nasty C, Gemini Major and Tellaman for ‘Right Now Reloaded’

Gemini Major recruits AKA, The Big Hash and Emtee for 'Right Now Reloaded.'

A remix for Gemini Major's Nasty C and Tellaman-featuring hit "Right Now" released in 2019 has been underway for several months. This morning, the artist finally shared the remix, titled "Right Now Reloaded." The remix three more stars AKA, Emtee and newcomer The Big Hash who each share outstanding verse.


As is becoming usual, AKA's verse comes with a jab at another artist. Towards the end of his verse, Mega raps, "I need my pussy Maimane/ Do you remember iFani?" You may or may not know this, but AKA and iFani once clashed in what was one of the most hilarious South African rap beefs.

AKA called out iFani when his album I Believes in Me: 2nd Quadrant went gold in a day because a brand had bought the copies, which went on to become part of a giveaway package.

AKA hasn't stopped poking fun at the Eastern Cape rapper who hasn't had the greatest of years ever since. Last year at the height of the shady 50 greatest MCs of all time lists, AKA asked why iFani was never appearing on anyone's list. Which was all tongue-in-cheek of course.

Controversy aside, all verses on "Right Now Reloaded," including those of Nasty C, Tellaman and Gemini Major, stand out. South African hip-hop may have had a slow year in 2019, but it looks like 2020 will be different.

South African Artist Mohau Modisakeng Makes Solo NYC Debut With 'A Promised Land'

The artist will present the video installation 'ZION' and other works centering on the "global history of displacement of Black communities" at the Jenkins Johnson Gallery in Brooklyn.

Renowned South African visual artist Mohau Modisakeng presents A Promised Land, his latest solo exhibition, opening at Brooklyn's Jenkins Johnson Gallery this month. This marks the New York debut of Modisakeng's ZION video installation, based on the artists's 2017 performance art series by the same name. It originally debuted at the Performa Biennial.

"In ZION the artist deals with the relationship between body, place and the global history of displacement of Black communities," reads a press release. "There is an idea that all people are meant to belong somewhere, yet in reality there are millions of people who are unsettled, in search of refuge, migrating across borders and landscapes for various reasons."

In addition to the video, the show also features seven large-scale photographs that communicate themes of Black displacement. From 19th century Black settlements in New York City, which as the press release notes, were eradicated to clear space for the development of Central Park, to the scores of Africans who have faced conflict that has led them to life as refugees in foreign lands.
