Botswana Music And Comedy Sensation William Last KRM Releases Infectious Amapiano Club Banger “Peka Peka”

Published

William Last KRM

The internationally renowned Botswana music and comedy star William Last KRM has drawn inspiration from a wide range of musical and artistic genres, but he has always carved out his own path with his avant-garde sounds and songwriting talent. He makes a comeback today with the release of “Peka Peka,” his brand-new Amapiano single.

Peka Peka” is a mesmerising marriage of rhythmic, hip-shaking percussion, rattling drums, and William’s vocal delivery that will undoubtedly ensure that this song is on repeat on airwaves and speakers around the world. It was produced by the exciting Botswana producer Makwinja and takes cues from Amapiano, House, and GQOM sounds. “Peka Peka” is William Last KRM’s ongoing exploration of Amapiano, the genre that has emerged out of South Africa’s dance music underground to become a global phenomenon.

Peka Peka” follows William’s hit single “iY-Yi featuring Takunda and his commercially successful “For My Uncles” EP. The singer is set to release his sophomore album in 2023.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the tune, William said: “My fans and the love for Amapiano inspired me to make the song. I figured since it’s almost the end of 2022, I need an amapiano banger to end the year on a high note. Peka actually means ‘crazy’ so basically, the song Peka Peka is about going crazy in any situation you are in. As much as people say William Last is crazy and funny, I actually agree. The key message I would like people to take from this song is to always be free with their lives. “Enjoy every moment while it lasts, you only live once.”

William’s growing profile has drawn the attention of global music heavyweight Chris Brown, who praised him for his comedic rendition of the singer’s 2012 smash hit single “Don’t Wake Me Up.” The singer has amassed over 3,000,000 streams all on digital streaming platforms. He also boasts of over 10 million followers on all social media platforms combined.

Ghana’s longest serving and most vibrant music group R2Bees is back with a big bang.

Virtually a year after releasing their much acclaimed album Back 2 Basics which debuted at number one on Apple Music and several charts across the continent, the cousins are here with a new single.

Titled Su Mo Mi, the duo does what it does best on a groovy Amapiano influenced beat produced by renowned in house producer Killbeatz.

Su Mo Mi which translates to Love Me is a Ga word (language spoken by southern people ofGhana). Its a love song that calls on the partner to give him some love if she really loves him.

Typical of Mugeez, the smooth voiced crooner makes it easy for music lovers as he delivers extraordinarily with a catchy sing along hook.

Omar Sterling on the other best represents himself as a singjay delivering excellently on the new single.

Su Mo Mi comes few months after the duo tapped new music star Gyakie for Need Your Love.

Su Mo Mi is a feel good song which should get party goers jiggy on the dance floor as it brings lovers closer to each other as well.

The song is currently available on all streaming platforms via https://ziikimedia.lnk.to/su-mo-mi-presave
