Buyile is an exciting collaboration between a veteran and New Age artists.
Speaking on his move towards the amapiano scene, Khuli Chana said: “I think as a musician you need to be free and open minded and to be fun. What I found was that hip-hop was not fun for me anymore. The culture of politics, always competing, competition that is not healthy. Who has got more money than who to egos? Every time I have done something that is authentically South African, I have always won. Always. That means that is what people love about me. That is what they love about the music like its home brewed, kea mo gae.”
