Watch King Monada’s New Music Video For ‘Chuwana’

King Monada goes from rags to riches in his new music video.

South Africa's King Monada won the summer of 2019 with his viral hit "Malwedhe." The dust has barely settled from the idibala dance, and the Limpopo artist drops a new single and music video.
