Kwesta has released the music video for Kubo, featuring K.O, Focalistic and Bassie, which marks his new lead single off his new album.
Kwesta took to Twitter on Friday, 30 July 2021, to confirm the availability of his new music video for the single, Kubo, featuring K.O, Focalistic and Bassie. The release of the music video marks it as the current lead single off g.o.d guluva, which is Kwesta’s most recent album. The song is referential of the Kwesta who delivered hit singles like Ngud’, featuring Cassper Nyovest, and Spirit, featuring Wale. This is as the single continues to straddle between kwaito and hip-hop in sound and lyricism.
Therefore, with the Onkabetse Hlongwane-directed music video, the song aims to visually translate the straddle. Therefore, the location chosen for the music video shoot is a luxury mansion. However, instead of behaving like the wealthy man he is, the music video disrupts the expectation by including township references This is evident in the inclusion of the pantsula dancers and Kwesta’s demeanour and look.
The video arguably aims to show that despite his success and wealth, Kwesta is still a representative of Katlehong, where he is from.
