Tchelete (Good Life) Featuring Mafikizolo
The struggle for pan-African appeal was the biggest musical trend of 2014, with South Africa and Nigeria leading the charge. Music duo, Theo Kgosinkwe and Nhlanhla Nciza, known as Mafikizolo was the catalyst for the movement.
Their comeback track Khona, last year’s biggest Afrohouse hit, spawned a slew of collaborations with Nigerian, Tanzanian, and Kenyan musicians, all of which were met with varying degrees of success.
Tchelete was a 2014 collaboration with Davido, who was Naija pop’s current it-boy at that moment and by far the most popular.
The collaboration also inspired Nigerian producers to infuse elements of South-African music into their sound and this was evidenced even in songs emanating from the streets.
The Sound ft. Uhuru, DJ Buckz
Produced by Shizzi, “The Sound” was dropped in 2015 and features South African prolific producers Uhuru and DJ Buckz.
The Sound followed Davido’s successful collaboration with the Mafikizolo and it was also bigger, showcasing Davido’s appeal across borders.
Davido’s vibrant singing blended perfectly with the house music instrumentals and Uhuru and DJ Buckz also held the ball up.
‘The Sound’ was another instant hit and Davido had all of Africa dancing to this one.
Coolest Kid in Africa- ft Nasty C
In 2016, Davido and South African rapper Nasty C collaborated to create the song “Coolest Kid in Africa.”
The song, which was included on his Son Of Mercy EP, was quite successful and included trap-like music produced by Sesan Ogunro. Both artists gave the song’s lyrics a wonderful delivery to keep it entertaining.
