After the release of their catchy new single “Colors of Africa” featuring superstar Diamond Platnumz and DJ Maphorisa, South African duo Mafikizolo are gearing-up to their upcoming headlining performance at the 13th edition of Koroga Festival.
Mafikizolo is set to excite Nairobi fans with their signature Afro-beats, and Zulu and Sotho lingo on Sunday, 31st of July, 2016 at the urban lush backdrop of Arboretum Gardens.
Mafikizolo’s latest collaboration sees the duo Nhlanhla Nciza and Theo Kgosinkwe working with DJ Maphorisa again, whom they had worked with on their smash-hit “Khona.”
As much as this is not the duos first time in Kenya, their fans will have an experience like no other of their unique South African sound, their great stage presence and of course their impeccable sense of fashion.
Though their last album was in 2013, Renuinted, Koroga Festival fans will likely get a taste of what the duo is working on.
Mafikizolo has also recently worked with one of Kenya's finest Jaguar on a definite club banger titled I'm going nowhere which is currently receiving a lot of airplay on Kenyan media.
“Over the years we’ve featured other musicians, but with this project [new album] we’re going to feature more African producers,” said Kgosinkwe in an interview with Times Live.
