Limpopo music giants Makhadzi and King Monada saved South Africa from what was going to be another bad “Fellow South Africans” weekend.

The artists gave the nation a glimpse into their new unreleased song, titled “Ghanama,” which also features a third Limpopo artist: Prince Benza. 

The two have been making big moves recently. CNN’s documentary about Makhadzi, called African Voices, aired in Mzansi in May. 

King Monada is similarly no stranger to international stardom, with countless hits already under his belt.  

An unofficial snippet of the song has already gone viral since it began circulating on social media over the weekend.

In the video, the musicians are seen dancing to the grooves of the song with their entourage in what appears to be a recording studio. 

Even the President’s announcement of lockdown Level four on Sunday evening was not enough to stop fans from enjoying the 30-second clip of the fast-tempo Limpopo dance track.

Makhadzi and King Monada have previously worked together on other projects, including the popular hit “Ngaka” in 2019, which is currently sitting pretty with over 700k views on YouTube.

Meanwhile, Prince Benza’s single, which he released two months ago with Makhadzi titled “Ngwago,” is currently sitting at 1.4 million views on YouTube.
