Local singer Zakes Bantwini dropped the lyric video for “Osama” lyric video to clear up confusion caused by the words in the song.
Dubbed as a potential song of the summer, “Osama” has received a lot of praise from Mzansi since it was first debuted at one of DJ Shimza’s Kunye events.
Due to public outcry, the “Bang Bang Bang” hitmaker even moved up the release of the song, which dropped on September 10.
However, the fans of the song have been struggling to learn the lyrics of the song and can’t quite make out what the words to the song are, or mean.

Following the heated debates around what is being said in the song, Zakes dropped the lyric video for the song on his social media platforms, to help everyone out, on Wednesday.
Captioning the video on Twitter, he said: “Once we are fully open, I would love to host the biggest concert in our country, with incredible acts from all genres, celebrating South African music.
“OSAMA Lyric video OUT On my social media platforms,” tweeted Bantwini.

Earlier the year, Zakes called on President Cyril Ramaphosa (through a tweet) to consider him for the position of minister of sports, art and culture.
Taking to Twitter, the “Clap Your Hands’ hitmaker addressed the Presidency, saying that with the way things have gone in the entertainment industry since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, he believed there was no leadership, and wanted to shape the change he envisaged for the future of the entertainment industry.
“I want to be the minister of art and culture. This pandemic has been extremely challenging for our industry and it's clear we have no leadership that cares for creative economy of this nation. As creatives, we deserve better and I want to change that for next generation,” he wrote.
