Tanzania’s hottest music duo Navy Kenzo make a major impression in the UK with the brand new single and video for ‘MAGICAL’ from their eagerly anticipated EP ‘LOCKED’.
Having already topped the Tanzanian polls, seeing them crowned as Best Group/Duo and building a YouTube portfolio of over 40 MILLION views, Aika and Nahreel are the trendsetters and most daring music artists to breakthrough to the mainstream from their motherland, and from their back catalogue of releases, its not hard to see why.
Constantly challenging the standard and raising the bar on their releases, ‘Magical' transcends to music culture the world over. In the new record the duo celebrate love and romantic vibrations with a sweet and sexy Afro dancehall riddim. Visuals to the song showcase Navy Kenzo with a polished yet simple, smooth and clean music video shot and directed by Director JC that captures every vibe that the music exudes and resonates with every one of us watching. Perfectly capturing the beauty of love and affection, Nahreel gently caresses a barely dressed Aika while they softly feel the smoothness of each other's melanin, capturing the intimacy beautifully and conveying a message of romantic vibrations, with a sprinkle of chilled tempos and the possibility of remaining each other’s ride or die.
Perhaps helped by the real-life chemistry from the long-term couple, the video follows Nahreel caught pouring his heart out to his beautiful one, a girl ‘magical’, someone who deserves a real man, to love her the right way, a man like him.
“There’s a girl on my mind, a beautiful girl on my side, be here for your man ain’t no need for de talk, baby girl im a sucker for your love and you know imma fight for your love (your love)... she magical, she magical.” - He sings for her.
The power of Aika is also evident in the record as she adds her sexy, confident style to both the lyricism and video performance, yet keeps the sweet undertone of the dancehall melodies she’s often associated with. Underneath the attitude is the subtle energy of passion, ardor, sex appeal, control and consistent sass and she's not afraid to present the dominance of her alter-ego Queen ‘Dracula’.
MAGICAL marks a breakthrough point for the Tanzanian music group. The LOCKED EP is not only a musical project to consume but is also an insight to the global success that is very much at their feet.
