KFC DJs break barriers

Still secretive about the title, and with a missing superstar voice, KFC's video is out today.

08 February 2019 | Art and Entertainment

For a long time they have been quiet but now this dynamic trio is taking Namibia by storm. The KFC DJs will drop their first single, along with its video today. The video was shot and directed by Reggie Films.

The debut single which is titled Surround is off their first album. They however, remained tight-lipped about the title but were very eager to share the release date with tjil. Although the video leaves room for assumptions as it is 'to be continued', it is filled with everything chivalrous. This was the concept that the group initially came up with and they say that what they envisaged, was brought to life. The plot for the video was to tell a story of love and about the act of fantasising about a person you have instant chemistry with. It features the trio, but the vocal genius, Minga, is not in the video.

Where's Minga?

Minga prefers to stay behind the scenes and linger completely out of the limelight. With a voice like that, I'd say it's a bummer. She also wrote the song and the KFC DJs said they felt a great desire to work with her.

KFC may sound delicious but the name is actually comprised of the initials of the members. Kadafi, Fisher and Chin Chilla. These are the disk masterminds that we have always only ever seen on the decks.

“We are very excited to share this music video and see the magnitude of its impact,” Kadafi said.

First, they leave us wondering about their next step and now they entice us by saying there is more. The group is already working on a concept for a second video and say they hope to drop their album by April next year.

Everything, from the acting to the directing of the video, is mind-blowing. Even though I would have loved to see Minga, who at the moment is pulling a Sia move, there is no denying that Reggie did it again.

We can't expect anything less from someone who has worked on projects for Sally Boss Madam and Gazza.

There is a market for DJs and there is an industry, but sometimes it is the stigma that Namibian house music isn't house music, which limits the artists.

This video is a must-see and Reggie said that his expectation for this video is at least 10 000 views in the first month, because the group is fairly new.

He also mentioned that at first he was sceptical because he rarely shoots storylines because of the logistical complexity, but he had a good feeling about this one.

Whether or not his expectations will be met or exceeded, we are yet to find out. Watch out for this fiery group. Make room because this is going to be one interesting journey.
