The high-quality music video, set to go live today, showcases working towards your dreams for a better and a shiner day. The song is an inspiration for a better tomorrow. The laid-back mid-tempo Amapiano song, it has a melodic guitar intro which gives the song a bit of a Samba feel, yet still authentic to the ‘Mapiano sound. The song features some greats in the Amapiano genre, and it is a song one plays over and over, as it’s very easy on the ear with the simple harmonies from the vocals which makes it an easy sing-along.

About Kusezo Khanya:


The song talks about ‘the hustle’ and the struggles that come with it, however the main focus of the song is to instil hope to those who are committed to their ‘hustle’. The track features De Mthuda who dominates the genre and yet here the approach to the song is a lot more laid back than his typical sound. Sam Deep collaborated on the track with Playgal, an up-and-coming female DJ.
