Velvet Bhengu now simply known as ‘Velvet’ was an SA Idols top 32 finalist in 2014.

A House track that embodies the deep rhythm of Mzansi, accompanied by his velvety voice the delivery artistically “shows off” is range and tone.
He creates a musically dynamic story from low notes to beautifully rounded vibrato notes, and high notes that could grab Whitney Houston’s attention from beyond her grave.

Velvet ft. Slugia – Girls
Bhengu describes the storyline of “Girls” as a real life experience in which the majority of South Africa succumbed during lockdown.
The job losses and constant claustrophobia and the mental breakdowns therein.
The feeling of missing the things that defined your weekends, but sadly we were all denied the experience of a normal life yet the human need to socialise never left us.
The story is focused on the monotonous ins and outs of the long days in lockdown.
Wake up sleep, eat repeat, an almost unproductive day since unemployment prevailed.
The need to be young and vibrant is still very much alive. So, can we go to the tavern and meet some girls and party from Thursday to Sunday?
Slugia who is featured on Velvet’s song, brings a fun energy with his verse and addresses Bheki Cele, and Nkosazana Clarice Dlamini-Zuma in a really comical take on the frustrations of the nation.
“Thanks for keeping us safe Mr President but I believe I am due for a lekka party now.”
