DJ Maphorisa x Kabza De Small – Koko ft Mhaw Keys

DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small released the music video for Koko, featuring vocalist, Mhaw Keys, on Friday, 5 July 2019.

The music video for Koko was directed by Nigel Stockl and starts with a quote, stating, “If one is free at heart, no man-made chains can bind one to servitude.” The quote is by black consciousness thought leader, Steve Biko, and lends to the narrative of the music video. Throughout the music video, archived footage of the apartheid era is intercut with footage of the three artists on a snowy mountain side in Lesotho while Mhaw Keys delivers his vocal contribution.

Koko is the first single from the DJs’ collaborative 12-track EP to receive a music video. The EP, Scorpion Kings, was released on the same day as the music video. Scorpion Kings has some mentionable songs, including Amantobazane, featuring Samthing Soweto and MFR Souls; Udriver, featuring Dldladla Mshunqisi and Professor; and Vula Vala, featuring Nokwazi and Virgo Deep.
