The video for “Khaima” reflects back to the transformation KK has seen in both his personal and professional life. Laying down his history and emotional past within the almost four and a half minute tune. The music video also includes rural highways and picturesque small towns interspersed with what must be landmarks that are special to KK. It gives a bit of context for KK, highlighting a slightly different perspective on his culture and craft.
Speaking during the premiere,KK admitted the song is so personal and emotional he decided to go home and show a different side of him. “ I’ve been off for a few years now and I wanted to show a different side of me my fans were not aware of. The song which means stand up or get up, gives hope to anybody to never give up because eventually you will get what you deserve regardless of your situation.”
KK says this is his first single from his new album and could not think of a better crew to feature on it than House/Afro Pop duo, Tswazis, who surely nailed the chorus. KK and Tswazis also Showcase their culture in their attires dressed by fashion designer Ingo Shanyenge.
