On Tuesday Khuli Chana came through with some “fiery” visuals for his forthcoming album’s lead single, Ichu featuring Cassper Nyovest. Sick visuals from the two Motswako giants – you definitely need to check it out !! As you may already know Khuli Chana is currently rolling out his fourth album dubbed Planet of The Have Nots. Watching the new Ichu visuals it seems like Khuli Chana is about to take us through a whole new season. It’s time for the heavyweights. Vivid and grasping to Khuli Chana’s now clear liking, the new visuals were directed and edited by Nic Roux.
But before he came through with the visuals that we couldn’t help but delve into first, on Monday Khuli Chana finally shared the release date for Planet of The Have Nots. The album will be officially released on the 15th of November. Announcing the release date and unveiling the album artwork the rapper wrote;
“28th of October is the day I got shot by the SAPS, case of mistaken identity. It’s been a long tough/interesting journey, but I’ve overcome and I’m now happy to announce that on the 15th NOVEMBER, PLANET OF THE HAVE NOTS DROPS. Artwork by Andadawg #Pothn“
Ahead of this much-anticipated release, today Khuli Chana shared a second song off the album. Dubbed I GEDDIT, song number 2 takes us back to the Lost In Time/ Motswakoriginator era as Khulu Chana promised. Check out the new Ichu visuals and new single, I GEDDIT.
