NaakMusiQ previews new music on Twitter, a work-in-progress single entitled, Tyibilika

Actor and musician, NaakMusiQ took to social media to share a video which previewed a snippet of new music, as the singer continues working on his upcoming studio album.

On Friday, 24 April 2020, NaakMusiQ took to Twitter and posted a video of him performing a snippet of a single he is currently working on. The musician shared the video with the caption, Tyibilika, which is the single’s working title. Tyibilika is a colloquial term used in most Nguni dialects to refer to something that is slipping or slippery. The single is upbeat and features the musician broadening his sonic explorations, leaning away from the Gqom-wave which he has been integral in growing as veritable music genre in South Africa. But with this latest release he is leaning more towards a hip-hop inspired pop ballad.

The snippet comes exactly a week after NaakMusiQ’s feature on friend and Afrotainment frontman DJ Tira’s recent single, Superhero, which also featured veteran producer and beatmaster, DJ Clock. Both NaakMusiQ and DJ Tira have previously indicated that fans can expect full-length projects in 2020, but were careful not mention specifics of either releases.
