Thankfully, there is more to unpack beyond its top quality and feel, due to the intriguing choreography performed by tmGREATNESS, one of the best dance academies in Africa.
This pumps an extra dose of excitement into the vibrant Amapiano production from DJ Tarico to produce a 4-minute thrill that celebrates African music and dance. The experience is outright captivating, yielding a row of colorful shots which fling the always-chill DJ Tarico, his livelier compatriots and the vocals of an absent Jah Prayzah into a supercharged backdrop of dancers and chants in the heart of Maputo.
For their continuous contribution to African music culture the Yaba Buluku Boyz and DJ Tarico were handed a good start to the year. The two received their first Soundcity MVP Awards nominations for “Best Group” and “African DJ of the Year”, respectively, highlighting their continent-wide appeal once again.
