Gqi from his latest album titled 'Mlazi Milano', is with no doubt loved by many." The way people react to the song through social media is just crazy, I haven't done a lot of shows promoting the track but people go nuts over Gqi," said the rapper. He features his two cousins who call themselves Amadando in the song.
"The recording and shooting was very easy, everything was just flowing as we hang out and dance together, I really enjoyed working with Amadando," he said. Fans can certainly, as in without question expect lots of dancing in the video. There's also an Umlazi story told. “People will see how things happen down there, the party life and just the life in my township in general".
