Listen to Gigi Lamayne and King Monada’s New Gqom Banger ‘Fufa’

Listen to Gigi Lamayne and King Monada's collaborative single 'Fufa.'

Gigi Lamayne's raps and melodies find a new home over a high-tempo gqom beat on her latest single "Fufa." The song features house sensation King Monada, who usually owns the summer in South Africa with his infectious hits. Last year, his hit "Malwedhe" had the whole continent doing the hilarious idibala dance.


On "Fufa," King Monada renders an auto-tune-heavy verse after Gigi's verses and melodic hook. The MC spits simple yet clever lines, an example: "Phansi komthunzi welanga, s'phethe uDash/ Ngoba phansi komthunzi welanga kune dash," a necessary homage to late kwaito star Brown Dash.
