- DJ Zinhle dropped the official music video for her hit track, Umlilo, featuring Rethabile Khumalo and Mvzzle
- But not everyone seemed impressed by the music video
- Many believed that the track deserved a better video
Mzansi's DJ Zinhle dropped the music video for her hit track, Umlilo, which features Rethabile Khumalo and Mvzzle.
Ever since DJ Zinhle released the Umlilo track, it has dominated radio station playlists and airplay across Mzansi. People love the vibey dance feel to the song and have been constantly asking the DJ when she was gonna drop the music video. Well, now it's finally here.
She wrote: "#UmliloMusicVideo - The Link is on my Bio. The video is finally out!!! So proud of us @MVZZLESA and @rethabile_rsa We also want you to know that we appreciate how much you love #Umlilo. Thank you."
While many fans celebrated the hit track and loved the music video, not everyone was feeling it as they had anticipated a different video all together.
Here are some of the comments from YouTube, where the track has been dropped:
Scelo Ngcobo: "This is without a doubt a Song of the Year 2019!"
Zukiswa Babalwa Nonkunzi: "No showing of booty, no drugs... Just clean happy people showing love... It's a simple and chilled video just like DJ Zinhle and not trying too much."
Pierre Claassen: "I love this song, but this video is an epic fail, I'm so disappointed. A great music video for this song was always going to be key to getting international exposure - opportunity missed big-time."
christabel chalomba: "Not to discredit anyone but I feel this song deserves an epic video."
mfundokayise lundi: "I can't believe that we waited so much for this video and this video is not that dope but the song is dope zee."
Martha Moloi: "I'm so disappointed though, this song is fire man the music video is the exact opposite"
Mildred Haragaes: "Honestly I'm disappointed in this video, no effort. But great song."
kudzai mavhenyengwa: "Umlilo number 1 house hit... anyone who approves?"
Tiara Livi: "I am so sad. Such a debi downer creative director high key slacked Shame. The song and my fave deserve better than this. I think the video is not up to par and I say that with the most love,not trying to be petty Betty. Love you regardless Zee! ❤❤"

Meanwhile, about two weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that there's no denying that AKA is one of SA's biggest artists right now - he's the first Mzansi hip-hop muso to hit 1 billion streams and he is doing the things with his #AKAOrchestraEthekwini.
When his track featuring DJ Tira and Riky Rick, F.R.E.E, was first dropped, it bumped DJ Zinhle's Umlilo from the number one spot on the radio.
But it seems Zinhle's track means business, it took that spot back again.
What did AKA have to say about his baby mama and bae surpassing him? He doesn't mind all that much.
