Watch the Music Video for ‘Ayipheli’ by Makwa, MarazA and AKA

Makwa shares visuals for his single 'Ayipheli.'

Makwa's hit "Ayipheli" has just been treated to visuals. The song, which was released last year, features a hook from MarazA and a verse from AKA.

"Ayipheli" is a song that was tailored for the summer—it's celebratory in nature and light-hearted in mood. The music video shows the three artists' performance scenes in an open field crowded with fans. The colorful outfits and free movement from the people present plays to the idea of summer. You'll spot cameos from Kwesta, Yanga Chief and a few others.


"Ayipheli" is the lead single to Makwa's debut EP titled Umshubelo. The artist shared the 8-track project towards the end of 2019. Umshubelo is heavy on features, which is usually the case when artists who are mainly producers release music. The likes of Tweezy, Emtee, Howard, Berita and Gobi Beast are some of the features on the EP.

The sound on Umshubelo references music genres such as kwaito and Afro pop, which is not surprising if you are familiar with Makwa's production.

Makwa has been behind the scenes for years, producing mega hits for the likes of Kwesta, Kid X and other artists especially those affiliated with the label Rap Lyf.
