New Music | AKA And Diamond Platnumz Drop Their Collaboration ‘Make Me Sing’ Music Video

Tanzania meets South Africa in this big new collaboration from Diamond Platnumz and AKA.
“Make Me Sing” follows the two superstars as they woo and serenade girls over a Tudd Tomas-produced steel drum beat. Diamond Platnumz delivers some romantic croons, while AKA raps about his ‘queen’ and drops a “Chop My Money” reference.
The Johannesburg-shot music video, directed by Nicky, sees the pair robbing a bank and subsequently spending all of the cash on girls and a mansion house party—things don’t end well for them though.
