Nigeria's Lojay & Shallipopi have remixed Tyler ICU & Tumelo ZA's track 'Mnike'

I am convinced that not all songs require a remix. Although I do not oppose reinterpretations, I believe that tracks that are already well-crafted do not need to be altered, and “Mnike” is a prime example of such a track. Originally released in 2023 under DJ Maphorisa’s New Money Gang records, the song has become one of the biggest Amapiano records ever released.

Within a year of its release, “Mnike” has garnered over 100 million streams on various digital platforms, and the numbers are still growing. Given the success of the song, it is natural for artists to want to put their own spin on it. Today, Tyler ICU & Tumelo ZA have collaborated with Nigeria’s Lojay & Shallipopi to create a remix of “Mnike.”

This latest remix of “Mnike” features contributions from DJ Maphorisa, Nandipha808, Ceeka RSA & Tyron Dee. While it is difficult for us to evaluate the addition of Lojay & Shallipopi’s vocals, the original beats and piano elements that the track retains make the remix a musical piece that listeners can enjoy on repeat.
