Khanyisa Jaceni needs no introduction to South African audiences, if she’s not churning out fire tracks, the girl is killing it on social media especially with her hilarious and honest Tik Toks.
The Mpumalanga songstress who was recently on Elite Nites with Kgomotso Meso, has hit another milestone mark this week when she released her isiXhosa version of the Bruno Mars hit, “Leave the door open.

Hitting all the right notes, she nails not just the direct translation of the lyrics from English to isiXhosa but she’s also melodiously in sync and her video has been viewed over 220K times on Twitter and close to 350K times on Tik Tok.
The Bruno Mars track is a firm Kaya 959 favourite with many calling the song the station’s anthem for 2021.
Khanyisa’s version is bound to be a South African hit and one can only hope the version reaches Bruno Mars.
