Kwesta is in a league of his own. The rapper has proudly been putting South African music on the map for years now and now, he’s taking his unique South African flavour internationally! The star has teamed up with American rapper Wale for his new single ‘Spirit’ which has already shot up to the number one spot on the South African iTunes charts.

The song is the first piece of Kwesta’s new era which also sees him work with Rick Ross and Tory Lanez. However, as suggested in the song, although Kwesta is teaming up with big names in international hip-hop, he stays true to his South African roots.

“To me ‘Spirit’ means being what you are about and not being afraid or giving up. Don’t be told that this thing does or doesn’t work,” Kwesta said about the track. “As long as it is in your heart then you need to chase it. Being South African, you need to represent where you come from. You need to represent that to the fullest and not let anything bring you down. You need to have the Spirit to face those dreams. Spirit!”

Giving back to his fans is close to Kwesta’s heart and so it comes as no surprise as the Spirit launch comes with a competition in which one of his fans stands a chance to be taken to USA thanks to Score Energy Drink. The competition called Score With Kwesta and the winner, plus a friend, get to travel with the rapper to shoot the ‘Spirit’ video as well as the So Drunk one featuring Rick Ross. As if the trip alone is not enough, the winner will also feature in these videos! To stand a chance, you need to like the ‘Score Black’ Facebook page, share his post and fill out an entry form on

‘Spirit’ is available now on all major digital platforms.
