Watch Costa Titch's music video for 'Nkalakatha Remix' featuring Riky Rick and AKA.
Costa Titch caught the game's attention with his single "Nkalakatha." The idea of a trap version of a kwaito classic was always going to be bizarre at first. But Costa Titch's song is an undeniable banger that inspires mosh pits at shows.
By now, if you haven't been living under a rock, you've heard the song's remix which features two of the country's biggest rappers AKA and Riky Rick.
After weeks of teasing, the up-and-coming rapper from Mpumalanga released the visuals for the remix. As expected, the energy levels on the video are high. Costa Titch and his guests are flanked by a gang of young people who gyrate to the thumping bass. The video was filmed by Argentina Fargo Films in two locations Sandhurst and Klipfontein. It boasts a natural street aesthetic.
Costa Titch's background as a dancer bleeds through in the video as he busts several choreographed moves with his group of dancers—you don't see that much choreographed dancing in South African hip-hop videos in 2020.
The video has given the song a new life, and hopefully it will become one of the biggest songs ever released by an artist from the country's new wave of hip-hop artists.
