Hip Hop lovers were expecting Kwesta new album this year. However, the artist has cleared the air by promising that the awaited album is still in the making and would be released soon. From the look of things, he will make the collection available in 2019.

His first album, Special Rekwest, saw the light in 2010. After three years, he added a second one titled DaKAR in 2013. His third album DaKAR II went on air in 2016. To listen to any of the tracks in the album, head online to Kwesta songs download sites like iTunes, or better still, listen to the track on Spotify.
Kwesta new song
All his latest songs this 2018 are singles. They are well-packaged jams to keep fans hooked as they await his upcoming album. Listening to his music, it is notable that the tunes are a mix of English and IsiZulu dialect. You will notice his effort in crafting impressive punch lines and throwing some metaphors into the mix. Check these two Kwesta new songs that the rapper released this 2018.
Kwesta – Hyena
Released in April 2018, ‘Hyena is an exciting song that has so far garnered 200k+ YouTube views. Much can be said about the song especially considering the distinct video scenes shot during a music tour in the states. Like all his jams, Hyena is no short of punch lines plus the musical melodies are just on point. The thought-provoking lyric goes in-line with the artist’s unique artistic style. Basically, the superstar raps about being the reigning artist in the industry. The words reinforce his proclamation of singing about reality rather than fantasy. Get Kwesta mp3 download from Amazon or download the Hyena track for free on Mzansistream.
Kwesta - Spirit ft. Wale
Spirit is one of the big tunes that has effortlessly ruled the airwaves since the release of the video on January 2018. However, the audio version was made available in October 2017. So popular is the banger track that it has accumulated more than 3.6 million YouTube views. There is no doubt that 'Spirit' is one of the biggest hits from a South African artist this year. Even still, his collabo with the American rapper, Wale, brought a whole new meaning to the music.
This is also one of the songs that make you appreciate your Africanness; due to its heavily-inspired cultural undertones. If the lyrics are something to go with, Kwesta digs into the soul of the African Spirit that oversees the success and triumph of Africans despite the ever-present challenges.
Depending on how you perceive the connotations and references, you will appreciate the ingenuity that went into producing the hit. Kwesta strives to drive the agenda that, although the society is facing a social divide between the traditional-leaning old generation and the fast-paced youths, we all connect through one spirit. That unifying element is what will unite us to achieve progress, as Kwesta puts it.
