Solange, younger sister of Beyonce, recently visited Cape Town to film a video for her single, “Losing You,” in which he’s flanked by a crew of impeccably dressed and supremely swagged out South African dandies (or “sapeurs“).

These otherwise unrelated musical occurrences are married in Poirier’s “official unofficial” video for “Jokma,” which remixes Solange’s “Losing You” visuals to fit Poirier’s own tune. “When I saw the video I felt it was fitting my track,” Poirier explains to LargeUp, “so we deleted the part where we see her singing and kept the rest and matched it with my track.” Watch the video to see what he means below. – source

“Wa Wont,” a prelude to OK’s upcoming sophomore EP with producer Freeworm (his primary collaborator on Ma Mwen). Turns out “Wa Wont,” a big anthem over the beat from Childish Gambino’s “Bonfire,” is actually the latest of several leaks posted on the Masalacism blog leading up to the new EP’s release, with each available as a free download for a limited time.
