Listen to Gemini Major, Nasty C and Tellaman’s New Banger ‘Right Now’

New banger from three of 031's finest.

Gemini Major invited fellow Durbanites Tellaman and Nasty C for his latest single "Right Now." Nasty C handles the chorus and the first verse before Gemini Major and Tella finish off what's already a slapper with equally engaging verses.


Smoky synths and 808s give the song texture while the three close friends exhibit their different personalities and artist traits with an undeniable chemistry.

There have been plenty of collaborations between the three artists. Nasty C appears on Tellaman's latest single "Whipped," alongside Shekhinah. Gemini Major has been producing for Nasty C in the past few years. But the last time the three were on one song was on Tellaman's "Rainbow Hoes" (Gemini Major appears as a producer) from Tella's debut album God Decides. The first time the three artists were on a song together was on Nasty C's 2018 single "Don't B.A.B."

Durban is the second home for Gemini Major, who's originally from Malawi. So, "Right Now" is a proudly 031 occasion.

"Right Now" follows Gemini Major's previous single "Issa Vibe," which will be part of his upcoming overdue project.

Watch EL, Joey B and Falz' New Video for 'Ehua'

Ghana meets Nigeria in this hilarious new clip.

Ghanaian rappers EL and Joey B connect with Nigeria's Falz for this addictive new collaboration and music video for "Ehua."

"Ehua" is built on energetic afro-electronic beat work produced by EL himself. Joey B handles the hook while Falz kicks things off early with a solid verse.

The eye-catching and hilarious music video for the single, directed by Yaw Skyface, features EL as a policeman, Falz as the 'oga' bossman, and Joey B as a worker for the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).

Falz takes Joey B's woman by showing off his money and status, so Joey B enlists policeman EL to get back at Falz. The plan backfires however as the officer decides to stick around and party with the rich instead of helping the everyday worker out.
