K.O and Okmalumkoolkat are similar in many ways – they are both great lyricists, they have both created their own distinct sounds that are rooted in South African township culture, they are sneaker heads with a great sense of fashion, they are great live performers and are both at the forefront of youth culture. Yet they are also different in many ways; whereas K.O is introverted, self-aware and more calculated as an artist. Okmalumkoolkat on the other side is edgier, free spirited and takes more risks with his music.
These similarities and differences are what makes this collaboration so highly anticipated; as soon as we let the cat out the bag that the two were in studio working on a record together social media went into a frenzy.
After bumping the song over a 100 times in the last two weeks and also playing it for a few radio compilers across the country (who all gave it a thumbs up) I can confidently say that fans will not be disappointed, the song is a definite banger with a thumping bassline, easy melodic hook and has bars (rap quotes) for days. The song is titled ‘Don Dada’ and will officially be released next week Friday across all digital platforms.
