Mafikizolo Set On Colouring Africa

25 April 2016
After three years of absence from the recording studio, South Africa’s musically acclaimed hit-makers, Mafikizolo, are back in 2016 with a brand new single and video, aptly titled Colours of Africa.

With the single, Colours of Africa, the duo is ready to continue where they left off by once again collaborating with the celebrated and talented Tanzanian artist Diamond Platinumz, as well as the finest producer, DJ Maphorisa, who has in the recent past worked with Mafikizolo, including Nigeria’s mega stars Davido and Wizkid, as well as American hip-hop artist, Drake, and many more successful musicians.

The video was shot in different locations around Johannesburg, South Africa, and fuses the different cultures, dance moves, sounds and musical styles that reflect the vibrancy of the continent. Mafikizolo’s last release was an album titled Reunited in 2013. The album enjoyed immeasurable milestones locally, across the rest of the continent and internationally. Reunited saw Mafikizolo scoop a number of awards, among many other accolades the duo achieved in 2013 and 2014.

The group is releasing Colours of Africa as a single, with the album to follow later.
