Seven months ago I came across the music video after being sucked into a YouTube blackhole. The video was Muzi’s "Zulu Skywalker" song which is a single off his 2018 album, "Afrovision."
Being no stranger to Muzi’s work, having first been introduced to him when he collaborated with Yanga Yaya on their hit "Desire," I found myself listening to "Zulu Skywalker" on repeat. The song has no lyrics but the video shows a black girl who is interested in astronomy and space. It's not an image we see every day and that in itself speaks to Muzi’s unorthodox approach to his music.
The star, who combines Afrobeats, hip-hop, electronic music, kwaito, and other genres has just released his latest single, which is a rework of the iconic Margaret Singana song, "We Are Growing."
"For my sets, I usually remix old South African songs and I remixed We Are Growing and it sounded very good so I decided to work on it and release it as a single,” said Muzi.
