Ongwediva-based Afro-pop and kwaito trio Amazonkies, released their single ‘Chuku’ on YouTube last week.
The song has a sports vibe to it, as it was recorded during Euro 2021. It’s one of the few singles they’ve recently worked on, and it features two great artists, Exit and Samuele Ngodji.
The Amazonkies are made up of three members: Starking, Tommy, and Ferry. Amazonkies’ Ferry stated that their fans have been requesting a collaboration with Exit and Samuele for quite some time.
“We have never gotten the right time and beat before, but now we have. We don’t really need to judge artists in order to work with them because, as Amazonkies, we welcome the opportunity to collaborate with any and all artists. Exit and Samuele are legendary artists from whom we may always learn something,” he said.
The group started with six people, but as time went on, members’ goals and ideals diverged, and some of them left. They began with a music video project in which they collaborated with Racio Media Group and Rasta Academy. The music video will be completed early next month.
