Watch Kwaito Legend Magesh’s New Music Video For ‘Good To Love’

Magesh is back.

One third of legendary kwaito group TKZee, Tokollo aka Magesh has no plans of hanging the mic anytime soon. The artist recently released a new single, "Good To Love," accompanied by a music video.


TKZee is one of the most musical kwaito groups of all time, and Magesh has carried on the tradition in his solo career. "Good To Love" is no different—it sounds like it was recorded with mostly live instrumentation, especially the guitar and bass.

The song features an uncredited vocalist who sings soothingly on the hook as Magesh chants some adlibs. "Good To Love" is a summer jam that doesn't require much from the listener, as it's a song you can enjoy without dancing. It's laidback, and the artist takes a lady on a cruise in the fitting music video.

Watch the music video for "Good To Love" below and/or download the song here.

As COVID-19 cases rise in Nigeria, Nigerians aren't just worried about getting the virus, they are also concerned about a host of other challenges: our lack of efficient and effective healthcare—which is overwhelmed even without a pandemic—the lack of appropriate data, and the high levels of poverty and illiteracy in the country that make it difficult to enforce the strategies that will enable us to handle the pandemic and keep it under control.

In a bid to understand how Nigerians are dealing with mental health challenges now, on the ground, due to the pandemic—which has led to a lockdown restricting movement and also social distancing rules—we spoke with Nigerian journalist, lawyer and mental healthcare advocate Chude Jideonwo, who is the founder of Joy Inc. He shared insights from his experiences with The Joy Inc., which he founded in 2016 to help young people going through mental and emotional challenges. He aimed to help provide young Nigerians with tools to help navigate the world around them.
