American rapper Lil Nas X must be grinning in his cup. Between April and May 2019 some celebrated artistes have released covers of his 2018 hit track “Old Town Road.”
Back in April, Nigerian rapper Dremo, high on his Codename USA Tour, had released a cover of “Old Town Road.”
A month later Sony Music Africa would co-opt Kwesta, Elandré and Refentse for a cover of the same song. And oh, the troika gave a wow performance.
All three artistes are South Africans. Kwesta is a celebrated name in South African music, with several hit songs, including “Vur Vai,” to his name. Elandré and Refentse are not exactly obscure figures either. The one is known for “Rhinestone Cowboy Medley” and the other for “Halala Afrika.” What you have here is only a limited list, of course.
