Channel O Top 30: Kwesta's Vur Vai shoots high!

17 December 2018
The Katlehong bred lyricist looks to torch yet another summer with Vur Vai, a new entry in this week's chart.

Kwesta's had one hell of a massive year.

While the rapper often underplays much of his accomplishments thanks to his grounded authenticity, no lack of grand gestures can downplay the sheer fact that he is currently the best selling rapper in the country. Not only that; the award-winning Katlehong native is also responsible for a slew of anthems that ruled every part of South Africa, and beyond, in the previous fiscal. 

And within just days of bringing Rick Ross to his 'hood for a music video shoot, Kwesta has premiered the long-awaited visuals for Vur Vai. The much talked about clip finds Kwesta taking on a superhero role who tackles pressing issues in his township. Vur Vai entered the Channel O chart at #8. 

Prince Kaybee and Busiswa's summer bop, Banomoya, boots Ariana's Thank U Next off the number 1 spot to regain its summer anthem status. The track continues being a firm favourite on the streets, on streaming platforms and right here on Channel O! A look at the biggest songs in SA right now:
