At every #Straatbraai, the Scenic Drive team play their hit song, 'Ndihamba Nawe'. This iconic song unites everyone at any event. 

Earlier in 2020, the duo joined the Scenic Drive to talk about their successful years in the industry and being one of the best duos in the world.

"When Kurt Darren called us to use our song (Ndihamba Nawe), we were truly honoured. He has a huge fan base.

"We gave him the song and he made it his own," Theo Kgosinkwe.

"It was hard. There were about three albums before people start noticing us. We were struggling but we were always hopeful," Nhlanhla Nciza.

Kgosinkwe continued by saying after all the struggle that they are blessed and highly favoured. 

Here is a video of the Scenic Drive team dancing to 'Ndihamba nawe' by Mafikizolo at a #Straatbraai in January.
