Watch Gigi Lamayne and King Monada’s Music Video For ‘Fufa’

Gigi Lamayne and King Monada share the music video for their collaborative single.

For the past few years, it seemed as if King Monada hibernated throughout the course of the year, only to show up in December with a summer smash. But this year, after his 2018 viral hit "Malwedhe," the Limpopo-born producer and artist seems to be more visible.

His appearance on Gigi Lamayne's latest single "Fufa," is one of such instances. The rapper roped in King for an addictive gqom song that seems to be catching on fire this winter.


The song, which was released last month, just received the visual treatment. There isn't a variety of activity on the video, except Gigi, King Monada and a group of dancers gyrating to the catchy gqom beat and the two artists performing their lyrics to camera.

"Fufa" is the first single Gigi Lamayne has released since parting ways with the label Ambitiouz Entertainment which signed her last year.

Gigi Lamayne recently shared her ordeals with the label and Mabala Noise, another label she had signed to prior. The artist explained how she had no choice but to transfer to Ambitiouz Entertainment to "serve my time." You can read the full story here.

Whoisakin Channels His Love For Anime In the New Video For ‘Magic’

The single, featuring Olayinka Ehi, comes off his latest EP Full Moon Weekends.

Nigerian singer-songwriter Whoisakin is sharing a new music video to accompany his hit summer release, "Magic".

His roots certainly show true as his Lagos inspired trap soul/R&B sounds fill us up with feelings of summer and a love made from dreams.

High off of a recent feature in Rolling Stone, Whoisakin's latest music video comes off of his debut EP Full Moon Weekends, his first release as a part of Mr Eazi's #emPawa30 project.

With all of the successes and accomplishments that have come along with it, the original story behind the song isn't as sweet, "Magic was actually inspired by a summer 2019 fling I had with some girl", the 22-year-old singer says, "Even though I thought the relationship had potential at the early stages, she never felt the same way and it was just 'vibes' for her. I mean the moments were beautiful but they never lasted. I made the record a few weeks after we were over. She got upset at me and that was it."

He went on to speak about his first release into the music industry as, "a full story about me and my relationships in 2019, basically. I was doing an internship with some construction company at the time so I had a whole lot of time to live life (especially the nightlife), experience new things. So, I felt like an animated series for the whole tape would be the best way to share the story better. Plus, I'm a big anime fan."
