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 boasts 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.

Check Out RIMON's Beautifully Intoxicating Live Performance

Eritrea-born singer-songwriter RIMON has just released a live performance of her tracks "Never Learned How to Cope" and "Feed Me." The Amsterdam raised and London based songstress delivered a psychedelically beautiful performance live on her YouTube page in such a way that we questioned our sobriety.

The session, originally performed for Eurosonic, acts as a rebirth for the artist as her musical and visual journey continues to evolve before our eyes—while teasing new unreleased music to look forward to. It seems as though those around the singer agree, as she was then honored with a Music Moves Europe award.
