Focalistic Teases New Amapiano Track With Davido. Focalistic never ceases Mzansi as he continues to raise the flag high. Following the success of their collaboration on the remix of ‘Ke Star’ it seems the two have future collaboration plans. The star recently announced that he was working with Nigerian star Davido to release a joint EP. The news broke during an Instagram Live conversation between Davido and the Pitori superstar.
On their joint EP, Davido said, “Focalistic, Davido EP coming in the summer. Four songs, and we f*ck that shit up.” Focalistic replied that, “Let’s f*ck it up, it’s the only way… The EP coming soon y’all. E Choke!” It seems the two stars have already finished cooking one song as Foca teased it on his Instagram. Taking to social media, Pitori Maradona wote: “RUNNING THE STREETS. / Title : RA E TAOLA!!! NEW FOCALISTIC x @davido.”
Davido’s collaboration on the remix of ‘Ke Star’ by Focalistic and Vigro Deep is now certified 3x platinum in South Africa and both artists have received the plaque. Davido had landed in Mzansi together with his gang and performed at Focalistic’s birthday celebration.
Time Magazine has declared the remix of Focalistic’s hit song Ke Star featuring producer Vigro Deep and Nigerian-American singer Davido “one of 2021’s best hits thus far”. In its annual list to honour the best global hits of the year so far, SA’s amapiano flies the flag high. “On this song, two SA stars who have been turbocharging dance floors across their country — the DJ and producer Vigro Deep and the rapper Focalistic — are joined by Nigerian Afrobeats king Davido for a bombastic intercontinental smash,” stated the publication.
Focalistic has been making a name of himself abroad and has even gained a fan in American rapper Diddy. “Dankie Modimo! Diddy playing Ke Star on his IG stories! Ase trap tse ke pina tsa ko kasi,” (trap music is kasi music) said Focalistic. Focalistic credited the love he’s been getting internationally to being able to package something unique and authentic to his identity. “In the world that’s the only thing that stands out — being yourself — the power of being you … but the craziest part is it’s hard to be yourself. It’s also crazy that saying Ase trap ke pina tsa ko Kasi ... one can end up in Times Square, I think for me that’s crazy!” the rapper said.
