Watch Kirani AYAT's New Music Video for 'Shugah 2x'

A blend of South African house, Ghanaian highlife and afrobeat.

Buzzing Ghanaian act Kirani AYAT comes through with this brand new single and video for "Shugah 2x."

The new track is a bit of a departure from his signature Hausa-rap style, as he decides to tackle more electronic-leaning production.

"Shugah 2x is an experiment I did on my last EP Her Vibe Is Right," Kirani AYAT tells OkayAfrica. "I wanted to do something new from what I'm known for and that was the result, a blend between SA house, Ghana highlife and afrobeat."

The track comes accompanied by a sleek black-and-white video directed by Andy Madjitey. "It's a sexy song and that was the vibe I wanted for the video: sensuality, duality, movements, and flesh," the artist mentions.

Kirani AYAT dropped one of the standout videos of 2018 with "Guda" and continues in good form here with this new one. He more recently collaboarted with NiiQuaye and Akan on the highlife-fusion track "Twa Wonan Ase."
