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."

Cameroon Holds Vigil to Remember Children Killed in School Attack

Residents in Kumba paid their respects to the seven lives lost, and those injured during the attack over the weekend.

In the latest tragedy to come from Cameroon's historically violent clash between Anglo and Francophone citizens, seven children were murdered after attackers stormed a school with guns and machetes over the weekend.

In what has been deemed as the "darkest and saddest day," by Bishop Agapitus Nfon of Kumba, armed attackers stormed the Mother Francisca International Bilingual Academy, targeting students aged 9 to 12. The tragic event saw dozens of children injured, some critically.

The attack has shocked the nation, with both local and international agencies condemning the horrible offense. On Monday, Cameroonian President Paul Biya denounced the "horrific murder" of the school children, and alluded to the "appropriate measures" being taken in order to bring justice to the families of the victims. Prime Minister Dion Ngute Joseph shared his condolences via a tweet saying, "I bow before the memory of these innocent kids."

The Cameroonian presidency and governing body have blamed Anglophone 'separatists' for the attack, though the group claims no part in the attack.

Human rights groups, however, have blamed both opposing parties, as the conflict has led to the death of over 3,000 deaths and resulted in more than 700,000 Cameroonians fleeing their homes and the country.
