Listen to Kwesta’s Latest Heater ‘Vur Vai’

Kwesta has a new firestarter.

It looks like Kwesta got the summer covered once again. His brand new single "Vur Vai" is the perfect song to get turnt to. Well, just like many previous hits of his like "Nomayini," "Ngud'," and "Spirit" among others.


"Vur Vai" has a huge kwaito influence; the mid tempo rhythm, those airy pads and of course the bass. The song, which is produced by Makwa, is another shebeen anthem. Kwesta tells the story of an nonsensical drinker—you know the type that doesn't want to leave at the end of the night. He raps, "Ngicela uthele out yami/ Ngicel' ucele kungavalwa/ Ngicel' ung'yele la e-bar/ Ubatshele ukuthi ngicela nje uk'delela ngivaye."



And, in true Kwesta fashion, he's no about that fugazi upmarket bullshit, as he says on the hook, "I-V.I.P yani? S'jayva nabantu." Big Star Johnson put it so well when he said "Kwesta is the realest nigga in the game. Kwesta ain't change by the money."

For the past two years, Kwesta has had the biggest hip-hop song of the year with "Ngud'" in 2016 and "Spirit" in 2017. He is highly likely to do it again this year with "Vur Vai." Don't say we didn't tell you.

By now, it's an open secret that amapiano is being produced outside of South Africa where it originates. Nigerian producers and artists, mostly, have embraced the sound and are creating and releasing their own interpretations of amapiano and amapiano-inspired songs.

The songs have resulted in cross-cultural sounds and collaborations that, in their own way, serve to unite, celebrate and foster an exchange of the electrifying music scenes that exist throughout the continent. As a result, these fusions have seen a number people casually refer to them as "Afropiano, Afro-amapiano etc" or "gengepiano" (gengetone with amapiano).
