The Very Best - Yoshua Alikuti
Esau Mwamwaya & Johan Hugo also known as The Very Best is back with a new single following the success of their 2009 album "Warm Heart Of Africa". Shot in the Kiamaiko slum of Nairobi, Kenya and directed by Village Beat, the video for The Very Best's "Yoshua Alikuti" is a play on the clip for Lil Wayne's "A Milli".
The song is produced by Johan Hugo and Moroka. Esau Mwamwaya is from Malawi and sings in the national language Chichewa.
The video premiered on Pitchfork and quickly spread to Worldstarhiphop.com where it has caused a big debate about the image portrayed by America rappers in their videos and the fact that "Yoshua Alikuti" mimics a Lil Wayne video, but set in a very poor Afrikan slum.
