Aewon Wolf has been labeling ‘Kumnandila’ a “hit single” since even before the song was announced. In fairness, this wasn’t that brazen of him: the track features a lengthy guest verse from Okmalumkoolkat at a time when he’s quite possibly the hottest property in all of South African underground music.

The single has all the qualities of single-as-banger. Its reminiscent of A$ap Rocky’s Skrillex-featuring ‘Wild For The Night’ in its marrying of heavy glitch-infused EDM with highly dexterous rapping and an irrepressible chorus hook. Just like that track, it probably shouldn’t work as well as it does, but it’s the kind of song that sounds as if it would be just at home in a sweaty club as it is in a car stereo or through headphones. Sketchy Bongo, on production, certainly deserves credit for making sure that it all comes together seamlessly. Okmalumkoolkat’s verse is drenched in his now-trademark brand of cool and becomes the centrepiece of the song, going a long way toward ensuring that Aewon Wolf’s prophetic marketing comes true.
