PIETERMARITZBURG’S artist, Scelo “Selloh Zikode” Maphumulo, has teamed up with Yizo Yizo star and actor Ernest “Chester” Msibi as they are recording a track Ney Ney, which they said will keep South Africa dancing.

Msibi’s stage name as a singer is “Vuvu”.

Maphumulo said the song will be released as a single and there are plans to shoot its music video before August.

“We took inspiration from Silento’s Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) song, which became an anthem on radio stations across the world. We are twisting the song and infusing a South African flavour. The track will keep people dancing in 2016,” said Maphumulo.

Maphumulo, from Edendale, said from an early age he knew he wanted to be part of the music industry.

“I have been in the music industry for a long time. I have worked with award-winning gospel artists - Sfiso Ncwane, Lindani Gumede, Sgwili and Babo. Vuvu and I started working together this year and I am happy with the progress.

“There are many plans which we will execute in the entertainment industry. We are also planning to shoot a movie in Pietermaritzburg,” said Maphumulo.
