Riky Rick 'FOKJULLENAAIERS (NAFUKWA)'

Boyznbucks' Riky Rick teams up with we-are-awesome and Adriaan Louw to deliver the cinematic music video for 'FOKJULLENAAIERS (NAFUKWA).'


Johannesburg's Riky Rick is still riding high on his scorching "Amantombazane" and its subsequent remix video. The Motif Records rapper wasted no time in making further strides to put the boyznbucks flag on the map with his follow-up burner "NAFUKWA" aka "FOKJULLENAAIERS" (yes, like the Die Antwoord song). Produced by Ganja Beatz, the trappy banger anthem first hit back in May. "NAFUKWA" is a word Riky made up, and it's since become a core pillar of the boyznbucks lexicon. There's still no word on what exactly the phrase means (Riky insists its definition should remain open). Last week a new video arrived to open up all sorts of theories. Riky teamed up with WE-ARE-AWESOME FILM and director Adriaan Louw to deliver some of the more larger-than-life visuals to hit SA this year. Set inside Joburg's Westbury neighborhood, the cinematic video features a who's-who of boyznbucks cameos plus a show-stealing spot from Mafikeng royalty Cassper Nyovest. Watch it below and head here for a free download of "NAFUKWA."
