Cape Town Dancers Shine on Prince Kaybee’s Music Video For ‘Gugulethu’

Watch Prince Kaybee's latest music video for 'Gugulethu.'

Popular South African house DJ and producer, Prince Kaybee has another hit in his hands. The song "Gugulethu" from his current album Re-Mmino has been playing everywhere you go in South Africa. The song features vocals sung in SiSwati by Indlovukazi, Supta and Afro Brothers.


To officially highlight the song, the artist shot a memorable video in Gugulethu, Cape Town.

The visuals show Kaybee cruising in a Gusheshe in the streets of Gugs, while featured vocalist Indlovukazi performs in different locations in the same hood.

The highlight of the video, however, has to be the dancing, mostly from Cape Town talent. You'll spot familiar faces if you are from Cape Town—notable appearances from Capetonians include choreographer Stoan Galela and revered freestyle footballer Chris Njokwana.

You'll also spot rising house artist TDK MaCassette.

The music video captures the essence of a weekend in Gugulethu, even showcasing the famous food spot, Mzoli's, which attracts customers from all over the country. You haven't been to Cape Town if you haven't been to Mzoli's (even T.I. made a turn when he was in Cape Town).

Re-Mmino includes the massive hit "Banomoya," featuring Busiswa and TNS, and "Fetch Your Life," which features Msaki.

Watch the music video for "Gugulethu" below and stream Re-Mmino underneath.

Interview: AYLØ Bridges His Music & Universe In the 'Clairsentience' EP

The Nigerian artist talks about trusting your gut feelings, remedying imposter syndrome and why our identity is best rooted in who we are, rather than what we do.

AYLØ's evolution as an artist has led him to view sensitivity as a gift. As the alté soundscape in the Nigerian scene gains significant traction, his laser focus cuts through the tempting smokescreen of commercial success. AYLØ doesn't make music out of need or habit. It all boils down to the power of feeling. "I know how I can inspire people when I make music, and how music inspires me. Now it's more about the message."

Clairsentience, the title of the Nigerian artist's latest EP, is simply defined as the ability to perceive things clearly. A clairsentient person perceives the world through their emotions. Contrary to popular belief, clairsentience isn't a paranormal sixth sense reserved for the chosen few, our inner child reveals that it's an innate faculty that lives within us before the world told us who to be.

Born in 1994 in Benin City, Nigeria, AYLØ knew he wanted to be a musician since he was six-years-old. Raised against the colorful backdrop of his dad's jazz records and the echoes of church choirs from his mother's vast gospel collections, making music isn't something anyone pushed him towards, it organically came to be. By revisiting his past to reconcile his promising future, he shares that, "Music is about your experiences. You have to live to write shit. Everything adds up to the music."
