Kalawa Jazzmee frontman, Oskido has released the music video for his current radio charting single, Banky Banky, featuring Niniola. The music video is for the lead single off of his new three-track EP, “Back To The Future.”
“Back To The Future” is an EP that not only marks 26 years in the industry for the legend. But it marked the first project released by Oskido which explored the parallels of kwaito, amapiano and afro-beats.
Banky Banky is described as a borderless outlook on music and experimental flair, he joins forces with Nigerian sensual singer/songwriter Niniola to create another amapiano classic. Niniola’s soothing voice immediately captivates you, on the laid back, mellow amapiano beats, carrying an already classic feel.”
Moreover, adding to that, Oskido’s raps on the song immediately hauls you straight back to Mzansi, creating a luscious and exotic taste of an integrated African sound in one serving.
The Sesan directed music video uses the premise of exploring the parallels in the current leading sounds in Africa and personifies the experience in fashion. The music video functions as a look book of proudly African high fashion designs with Niniola, Oskido and the dancers in the music video as models.
The video includes a cameo from Busiswa.
About Banky Banky
Back to the Future is Oskido’s exploration of the convergence between kwaito and amapiano. On Banky Banky he pushes the envelope even further through the merging the tempo of kwaito, the signature percussions of amapiano and the influence of afro-beats delivered through the soulful voice of Niniola.
Lyrically and melodically, Niniola carries the single as she interchanges between her native language and pidgin. Her lyrics are both complementary and contrast the beat of the up-tempo single as she inspires the pursuit of more and never giving up. But delivers it on beat which forces you to your feet. Oskido delivers his signature catchy ad libs as the song reaches its peak.
