Yanga Chief took to social media to share an appreciation video message he received from King Dalindyebo. The rapper gave the king of AbaThembu a shout-out in his smash single titled Utatakho.
At the time he dropped the track, the king was in prison serving his 12-year sentence. He was only released in December 2019.
In one of the lines on Utatakho, Yanga raps:
"On my Dali Dalindyebo."
Yanga's mention of King Dalindyebo in the hit track has finally reached his king's ears. The musician is one of a few Xhosa rappers who are not ashamed to rap about their culture using their own language.
Yanga shared the king's message on his Instagram account. He captioned the post:
"My my message finally reached its destination."
He also used the opportunity to wish King Dalindyebo, who recently had a health scare, a speedy recovery.
"Get well soon King Dalindyebo."
Other Mzansi rappers took to Yanga's comment section to congratulate him.
Hip-hop DJ Ms Cosmo wrote:
"Haaibo. This is legendary stuff okay!"
Kid X commented:
"Ishuuuuuuuuuu! Iconic indeed!"
Another hip-hop DJ, PH, added:
In other hip-hop news, Briefly.co.za reported that Emtee has taken to social media to respond to some of the people who have criticised his new sneaker designs. In his pursuit of the bag, the star recently announced that he is preparing to launch his own sneakers.
Some tweeps have asked the Roll Up hitmaker to rework his new product, while some have asked him to put more work "on the finishing of the sole".
The rapper's personalised sneakers have come under fire from social media users who are not impressed by the way they look. A tweep, @Mvundle2020, said:
"Bro, I want to support black businesses, but this is crap, rework the product."
