Kamo Mphela chats to us about why she is not happy about the visuals for her first solo single, Nkulunkulu
Dancing sensation and Amapiano Queen, Kamo Mphela recently released the visuals for her solo single, Nkulnkulu. Known for her exhilarating and explosive dance moves alongside her catchy feature verses on some of the biggest Amapiano tracks, Kamo Mphela is dropping her very first official single that promises to be a new hit dance anthem.

It’s just me asking God for stuff,” she says. Kamo cleverly adds her signature flow with repetitive catchy verses. This is served up over a fast-paced beat that with a melodic hum along.
Nkulunkulu also serves as a new way to reintroduce herself to us as a solo artist. “I dropped that specific song with the specific video because I’m trying to introduce a new sound,” she continues.
The visuals for Nkulunkulu are quite spectacular. Shot by Fargo Films, the visuals see, among other things, Kamo showing off her superb dancing skills and a variety of great stylings and scenery. She features an all-woman dance crew choreographed by Tllogi M as well as renowned choreographer, Bontle Moloi (nee Modiselle).
“It’s a dope video but that actually wasn’t the whole vision,” she explains. Saying that there were a lot of shots missing from the initial video shoot but the director and the team that handled the shoot did a lousy job and those shots had to be removed from the video. “I was really frustrated because I trusted someone with my vision and for me to put som much money and for you to deliver something bad service…”
