    Masego and FKJ drop official video for their viral hit “Tadow”

    When I was planning to start this blog this song Masego and FKJ  “Tadow”, was all over my playlists on all the platforms and all devices. So catchy, so good and so satisfying.

Nice blend of jazz, soul, beats, and electronics. And the best part of it that this track was all improvised by two talented musicians who recorded the whole artistic process and then they shared with fans.
