The growth of house based music genres in African states like Nigeria has left the South African house music scene positively overexposed, with their sound being the most dominant influence for the sound in Africa. But rather than sit around and watch each new derivative style make the sound exhausted and liable to collapse, DJ Maphorisa and DJ Raybel are re-purposing the sound on their new single, “iWalk Ye Phara”, tailored to hip-hop taste.
“iWalk Ye Phara” features South African rappers, K.O and Zulu Mkhathin, and a rap verse from the versatile Moonchild Sanelly. The prom party themed video Seriti directs highlights the groove of the house beat DJ Maphorisa and DJ Raybel produce through the school setting of the video with scenes of students dancing, a public bathroom and a basketball court where all the preforming artists dance while rapping their bars.
