Distruction Boyz Throw The SA House Party of the Year In This New Video

Watch the video for "Omunye" by Durban gqom duo Distruction Boyz.

Durban gqom duo Distruction Boyz have one of the hottest albums out in South Africa right now. Titled Gqom is the Future, the 13-track album has just given birth to its first single "Omunye," which is a fan-favorite from the album.


The duo just released the video for "Omunye," and in true Durban dance music style, it's shot in a mansion with a lot of dancing. Prominent faces in the South African music scene such as DJ Tira, Donald, Major League DJz and DreamTeam, among others, make cameos.

But the most prominent of those cameos has to be actress and media personality Khanyi Mbau, who shows up in a double slit dress to do some twerking.

Watch the video for "Omunye" below, and listen to Gqom is the Future underneath.
