KING 98’s camp reckons the Zim hip-hop game-changer has made great strides in tapping into the East African music market.
According to his handlers, the 22-year-old is today expected to drop a video, which is a collaboration between King 98 and a Tanzanian superstar titled Kachiri.
Judging by its trailer, shared on King 98’s social media handles, the Francesca singer nailed it. It will have its premiere on Trace Africa today, which marks the South Africa based rapper’s efforts to establish himself in East Africa And having made great strides in South Africa, where he works alongside Nasty C and West Africa, where he boasts of major collaborations with Davido and Zlatan, King 98 is simply unstoppable.
And today is indeed a great day for him as the rapper’s ‘bromance’ with Diamond Platnumz is set to yield results.
In an interview with H-Metro, King g8 spokesperson Stephen Tsikirai said the rapper has become an international brand. “King 98 is an international brand and last year when he launched his album, he set his sight on engaging another international act.
“His vision was mainly synthesizing East Africa music with hip-hop and he began working with Diamond Platnumz. “It is this stride that he has made that we have been working on,” said Tskirayi.
He added: “I will not preempt (sic) what to expect on the video as we want people to watch it for themselves.
“It’s indeed a good video, many people will enjoy it.” To date, King 98 has a number of refreshing videos like Pull up, which he recorded with Davido’s mentee, Zlatan. Prior to that, he also released a video to the song No Bad Vibes, which features Davido.
Wacko, featuring Laylizzy and Nasty C, is also another video trending on social net-works which he recorded in recent years.
On home turf he released the video to the song Shoko, featuring ExQ last year. In South Africa, the rapper continues to learn from Nasty C, who now considers Zimbabwe as his second home as he alternates between Harare and Joburg when the call of duty comes.
