Uhuru And Wizkid Team Up For 'Duze'

Stream and download South African collective Uhuru and Nigerian StarBoy Wizkid's high-octane collaboration "Duze."


South Africa's Uhuru — the collective comprised of producers DJ Clap and Maphorisa, pianist Mapiano, and vocalist Xelo  come through with "Duze," a high-octane collaboration with Nigerian Starboy Wizkid. The single kicks off with Wizzy's signature high-pitched croons, which fit perfectly over Uhuru's trademark heavily-percussive beatwork and addictive synth lines. The Uhuru quartet is coming off the release of their recent Dubai-shot video for "The Sound" alongside Davido and DJ Buckz. Wizkid's had a busier 2015, releasing the standout visuals for "Ojuelegba" and "Sound It," collaborating for the first time with 2face Idibia, and getting a remix from Sarkodie. Stream and download Uhuru and Wizkid's "Duze" below.
