ALBUM: Skhanda World – Welcome To The Planet

Skhanda World – Welcome To The Planet

In 2021, as K.O and Ma-E attempt to groom a new generation of skhanda rap with the label compilation Welcome to the Planet, the proxy in South African popular is amapiano. Throughout the project, ampaino’s defining log drum becomes a soundbed for raps on DJ Mr X’s “Asambe”, K.O and Nadia’s “Abalaleli”, Ma-E and Khuli Chana’s “Siyaz’wisa” and DJ Mr X’s “All I Want”.

Just Bheki’s solo songs “Bameme” and “Mzala” take the Afro-pop route while Roiii jumps on a drill beat for “Lavidaloca” before his melodic collaboration with Focalistic. At the epicentre of the is the label’s roster—K.O, Ma-E, Just Bheki, Loki, Roiii and DJ Mr X, but they are flanked by royalty on AKA, Cassper Nyovest, Blxckie, Nadia Nakai and Khuli Chana.
