Watch Khuli Chana's New Exceptional Music Video For 'Buyile'

Khuli Chana's 'Buyile' music video features hip-hop and amapiano's finest — Lady Du, Tyler I.C.U, DJ Sumbody, Stino Le Thwenny and more.

Khuli Chana's new music video for "Buyile" has finally dropped, almost a month after the South African hip-hop artist released the single. Khuli Chana's better half DJ Lamiez Holworthy features prominently in the music video alongside hip-hop duo Stino Le Thwenny. Amapiano's current cream of the crop DJ Lady Du and producer Tyler I.C.U also make an appearance in the video. Co-producers DJ Sumbody and Vetty also join in to celebrate Khuli Chana's new musical chapter.

The "Buyile" music video is just what the doctor ordered to get through a midweek slump, a powerful move by Khuli Chana that celebrates his turn to a new musical chapter with his embrace of amapiano. However, the amazing rap lyricist's maintains his hip-hop stance as seen in the visuals. Khuli Chana and his entourage get together have the most wicked fun in a hotel in the "Buyile" video. Lady Du, who lends her undeniably recognisable vocals rides down the hotel aisle in a hotel bag trolley. The hotel takeover descends from the lobby down to the reception where a big party takes over. The scenes cheekily capture the return of the Motswako originator to the hip-hop game.

It is tempting to make saints out of the departed. The former Zambian struggle hero did many great things. He was, after all, one of the giants of the continent's struggle against colonialism.
