Da King of African Rap is set to launch his new single titled Day One for the fans, in recognition of the support and overwhelming response to his current smash hit single Ngud’, which has maintained the #1 radio chart position in the country for 4 consecutive weeks.
The launch at Zonke 6 in Soweto will be streamed live on Saturday 28 May, 2016 and will also include the premier screening of the Day One music video movie.
Interestingly, both Kwesta and AKA’s careers started at more or less the same time with their debut albums being released only 6 months apart in September 2010 and March 2011 respectively, making this event a fitting tribute for all their day ones. Day One is an ode to real friends who stick with you through all life’s ups and down.
Fast approaching Gold sales status, Kwesta’s DaKAR II (double album) continues to dominate the SA sales chart and the music video for Ngud’ is about to hit the 2million views milestone.
Kwesta has been involved in the recently launched SABC 1 rebrand campaign which comes to life through an original Television Commercial (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiBM5k3Mm1g) and the theme song / SABC 1 lifestyle soundtrack titled, Rite Now, composed specifically for the channel by Shugasmakx, featuring Kwesta, Fifi Cooper and Nasty C.
Kwesta will be opening for J Cole at the sold-out TicketPro Dome concert on 18 June.
