After three years of absence from the recording studio, South Africa’s musically acclaimed hit-makers, Mafikizolo, are back in 2016 with a brand new single and video, aptly titled ‘Colors of Africa’.
With the single, Colors of Africa, the duo is ready to continue where they left off by once again collaborating with the celebrated and talented Tanzanian artist Diamond Platinumz, as well as the finest producer, DJ Maphorisa, who has in the recent past worked with Mafikizolo, including Nigeria’s mega stars Davido and Wizkid, as well as American hip-hop artist, Drake, and many more successful musicians.
The multi-platinum selling and award-winning duo held a special media launch at Silverstar Casino’s movies@ cinema complex in Krugersdorp on Wednesday, 20 April. Silverstar Casino, the West Rand’s No. 1 entertainment venue, was the perfect choice for the exclusive media launch.
The Colors of Africa video and track is expected to first hit the airwaves on Thursday 21 April, playing exclusively on MTV BASE for three days.
The video was shot in different locations around Johannesburg, South Africa, and fuses the different cultures, dance moves, sounds and musical styles that reflect the vibrancy of the continent.
