Davido x Mafikizolo 'Tchelete (Goodlife)'

South Africa meets Nigeria in Mafikizolo and Davido's vibrant collaboration "Tchelete (Goodlife)." Watch the music video for the new hit.


If you follow South African house then you know that Mafikizolo pretty much owned the scene in 2013. Their hits "Khona" and "Happiness" were massive last year, and are both nominated at the MTV Africa Music Awards, but the duo has no intention of staying idle. Mafikizolo just dropped the video for "Tchelete (Goodlife)," their recent collaboration with Nigerian pop wunderkind Davido. The clips' vibrant visual treatment gives us a glimpse of the good life indeed: sharp outfits, gold jewelry, luxury cars and invitations to “chop” the bills flying everywhere. However, the real value lies in the energy of the song which sees South and West come together beautifully on a track that is sure to have the whole continent dancing. Look out for cameos by Uhuru and Oskido!
