Watch the Video for K.O and Nandi Madida’s Single ‘Say U Will’

Watch K.O and Nandi Madida's new visuals.

K.O and Nandi Madida just shared the visuals for their collaborative single "Say U Will" which was released last month.


Just like the visuals for their previous collaboration, "Skhanda Love," the new video has a storyline that intercuts performance scenes. The video, which was shot in Braamfontein, shows the two main characters' relationship going through a rough patch and, after, reconciling—the stuff of fairytales.

The video was released at a fitting time, as it teleports you to a few months from now when the summer has kicked in. You'll see colorful outfits and beautiful weather.

"Say U Will" is a single from K.O's upcoming album PTY UnTLD . The rapper and producer shared the name of his upcoming album and September 27 released date yesterday.

The album's tracklist hasn't been released yet, but K.O's hit single "Supa Dupa" is highly likely to make the project.

PTY UnTLD will be K.O's third studio album. K.O released his debut album Skhanda Republic in 2014, and it's considered a modern hip-hop classic. His follow-up SR2 was released in 2017. The album didn't make a dent as huge as its predecessor.

In 2018, K.O released a two -track EP titled Two Piece. It featured AKA and Cassper in its two songs. K.O has come long way since his days with the group Teargas in the 2000s and 2010s to running the label Cashtime Life and eventually becoming a one-man army.

Emile YX? Wants to 'Reconnect The String'

The father of South African hip-hop's latest book release is here to teach you about the culture.

As a father-figure in South African hip-hop, there's a lot Emile Lester Jansen, aka Emile YX?, knows. He'll also tell you, there's a lot he doesn't. But the knowledge Emile has gained, over his 3 decades in music, he's always tried to share with others. His latest project is no different. The Black Noise founder is working on a book that identifies the similarities between Bushmen expression and hip-hop, and how this knowledge can help empower anyone who has a love of the culture.

The book, which will be called Reconnect The String, comes on the back of this year's 21st anniversary of the African Hip Hop Indaba, one of the landmark hip hop events in Cape Town created by Emile, which has helped many an artist launch their career. As a teacher and a musician, he's long been involved in using hip hop to uplift communities—first through the seminal group Black Noise, founded in the late 1980s, with its rhymes rallying against Apartheid, and then through the Heal the Hood organization, a non-profit that grew out of the group's efforts to use its love of hip hop to fuel youth development initiatives in townships on the Cape Flats.
