Mabalane took to his Instagram page on Sunday to share his collaboration with producer and DJ Da Kruk, Keep Walking

On the Instagram post, he wrote, “Haven’t been in studio in a minute. Da Kruk convinced me to come out and play with the other kids and we put together this piece. More on the way.”


Speaking to TshisaLive, Mabalane mentioned that music is a spiritual experience for him. He further mentioned that Da Kruk had reached out to him and sent him a few beats. 

“I think I’m in the right frame of mind now to make music that’s really honest to who I am and where I’m at and I had to go through the process.” 

He shared that he made the song with Da Kruk three months ago and his kids have been loving everything about it. 

Their single Keep Walking will officially be released on 10 September.
