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.

The 10 Best HHP Songs Ranked

On the second anniversary of HHP's passing, we rank 10 of the South African hip-hop legend's best songs.

During his active years, which span two decades (from 1997 to 2018), he was instrumental in breaking barriers and bridging the gap between kwaito and hip-hop in SA, from the late 90s to early 2000s.

He became a household name in the 2000s as he spearheaded the motswako movement, propelling it to the mainstream and solidifying his legendary status in the process.
