“Bonginkosi” also happens to be the kwaito legend’s birth name”
“Bonginkosi” is catchy and will definitely strike a chord among believers.
Cassper Nyovest and Zola 7’s new single is essentially a gospel song. With the hook going “Keleboga Morena” and “Ngiyabonga Baba”, phrases which mean “I thank The Father” in SeTwana and IsiZulu, the song is about showing gratitude to the Almighty.
All this over a soulful trap beat that’s built over organ keys and an omnipresent bassline.
This is familiar territory for Zola 7 whose career has several gospel songs that still maintain the grit of kwaito and hip-hop.
