K.O Shares Visuals for ‘Flight School’ Featuring Sjava

Watch K.O and Sjava's music video for 'Flight School.'

From his 2019 album PTY UnLTD, K.O releases a new single, which he highlights with a new music video. The visuals for "Flight School" show performance scenes of the South African hip-hop star and his guest Sjava in what looks like a nature reserve.


"Flight School" isn't a song about aviation. The message is loud and clear—before you can fly, you need to learn how to walk." Sjava is the perfect choice for a guest in a song that aims to motivate listeners and assist in making their journey to success a smoother one.

"Flight School" is one of many singles K.O is going to release from PTY UnLTD. He told OkayAfrica in an interview last year about his plans for the project for 2020:

"I figured it out. If I can launch mildly, I know I have plenty head room for me to still peak higher than how I launched, and that's where we are right now. Going into the festive season, I have another video that's going to drop, and I know we're going to shake shit up. In the new year I have probably some of the biggest songs that are going to come out, just to start 2020 off with them. The conversation is just going to get bigger and bigger on this album, that's where we are at."
