— After about 2 years of heavy rotation, Masego and French Kiwi Juice have released an official music video for their 2017 collaboration, “Tadow”.
Remember that 8-minute video released by Masego and FKJ of the duo performing “Tadow” in a music studio about 2 years ago? Well, lucky for fans of TrapHouseJazz pioneer, Masego, and multi-instrumentalist, FKJ, they’ve now released the official music video.
The visual couldn’t have been a better fit for the song as we follow Masego during what seems to be a beautifully mellow day. First cruising through the city with the top down, then hitting a sultry bar, and more, all while the words “Tadow” appear in every place that words would be featured.
Check out both videos right here and be sure to take a listen to Masego’s 2018 album Lady Lady, which features “Tadow” as its first single.

－Just a a few weeks ago, multi-talented up-and-comer, Masego, premiered his new single, “Old Age”, featuring SiR. Now we have a visual to match －a pretty humorous one at that.
Quite a few sophisticated young men can understand the desire to pursue older women and Uncle Sego is one of them. For starters, they know their bodies much better than their younger counterparts and can put together a good meal according to the Virginia-native. To get this message across, he called on TDE crooner, SiR.
The music video also features comedian, Renny, and opens with a short sample of one of his popular Instagram skits. Throughout the video, Masego keeps his eyes on an older woman only to find out that she is his girlfriend’s mother. Still, he can’t seem to shake his infatuation.
