Khuli Chana And Patoranking Connect On The Dancehall Influenced 'No Lie'

Motswako rapper Khuli Chana and Nigeria dancehall singer Patoranking share the party visuals for their latest joint single "No Lie."


South African rapper Khuli Chana and Nigerian singer Patoranking join forces in their joint, dancehall-influenced single "No Lie." The track, which was produced by EKelly, features festive rhymes from the Motswako MC alongside a reggae-tinted refrain from Patoranking, who recently won 'Best New Act Transformed By Absolut' at the 2015 MTV Africa Music Awards. Its accompanying Nic Roux-directed music video follows the pair as they ride a convertible and party in a mansion with a group of dancers. For more from Khuli Chana, check out his neon visuals for "Mahamba Yedwa/Mo Tsipe" and the somber video for "9 Shots," which addresses a 2013 incident in which he was shot and wounded by South African police officers in a case of mistaken identity.
