Nigerian hip hop star Ycee has recently collaborated with SA’s DJ Mahphorisa to create a pumping, fast-paced remix of Ycee’s track, ‘Omo Alhaji’. With the original track garnering over a million YouTube views, remixing the track was a bold move. It seems to have paid off, for the most part, as a quick foray into the remix video’s comments shows a mostly positive reaction to the remix.
The video for the remix was shot in Johannesburg by La Dupont productions, and features an array of expensive sports cars, similar to Ycee’s video for the track ‘In A Benz’, which was released in early September.
The video showcases the vibrancy of Africa, as it features a breathtaking Jo’burg sunset, talented dancers and a strident beat, which has been lauded as infectious by the majority of both Ycee and DJ Maphorisa’s fans. Watch the video below.
