Dafina Zeqiri unveils an attractive audiovisual for her “Zili Zili” single

Dafina Zeqiri is an Albanian-rooted singer-songwriter from Varberg, Sweden. Not too long ago, she released an attractive audiovisual for her “Zili Zili” single.

The song is about how big artists in the music industry move on and don’t really care about these accusations since they have to focus on their work, etc.” – Dafina Zeqiri stated

‘Zili Zili’ finds Dafina Zeqiri addressing people who act a certain type of way after accumulating a large lump sum of money.

Lund is a singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist from Southern California. Not too long ago, he released a lovely animated music video for his “Red Tide” single, directed by Rafatoon.

I’m so stoked to show you guys.” – Lund stated
