After dropping her debut single, “Wuzdat” in 2018, Boity is ready to secure the bag with a strong start to 2019 and she plans on doing that with the release of her second single: Bakae.
After making an emphatic debut with “Wuzdat”, a single which earned her a South African Hip Hop Awards nomination, the country has been glued on Boity’s feeds, waiting to discover what her next move would be. For weeks, the rapper (who also doubles as a presenter and fashion entrepreneur) has been teasing at a second single; even going as far as performing it in front of select audiences.

But after the speculation became unbearable, Boity took to social media to confirm the news we had all been waiting to hear: a second single was on its way and it would be arriving sooner than we all thought.
The rapper wrote on Twitter:
“The wait is over!! I’m finally dropping my second official single titled #BAKAE produced by Ganja Beatz this Friday!”

The announcement was met with excitement on social media as many fans thanked their fav for finally giving the second single they had been anxiously awaiting:
