Welcome to the celebration of African finesse and world wide connection. This is the gathering of the world’s finest artistry to meet in 1979 Johannesburg for the Major Lazer Nights. We’re here for the fashion, the hair, the dance moves and all this melanin. The visual for Major Lazer and Dj Maphorisa’s Particula was premiered yesterday world wide in multiple exclusive screenings just before the video went live officially. We got to hear stories of how this monumental, cross-continental collaboration came together and we’ll share that soon with you.
In the music video we see Nasty C chauffeured by a gorgeous afro’d driver till he gets to the party. In another frame we see Ice Prince walk towards an amazingly positioned sunset on a roof top. Hold up, how did they manage to get Mother Nature to show off with that artistic sunset in the background like that? DAMN! In another frame, we see the charming Jidenna groove in the corridors of what looks like Braamfontein as he delivers his impressive afrobeat tinged verse on the song. Soon after that, it’s a whole party as all the elements of the visual time together into an old school party where Dj Maphorisa rocks the crowd. We just adore how proud this video makes us feel to be African. Our people’s cloth, style and dance is represented so well while tying it to the magnitude of the international collaboration that it is. FROM AFRICA TO THE WORLD!
@leboywonda – FRVR ft @Zoocci_CokeDope x Plugga ft @PJayB3nchMarQ @3TWO1_nje
B.O.Y Wonder decides to gift us with not one, but two, music videos this morning in support of his most recent singles. The first one being the haunting FRVR which features Zoocci Coke Dope, the second one being the thuggy Plugga featuring PJay (B3nchMarQ) and 3TWO1.
In the visual for FRVR we see B.O.Y Wonder seemingly injured, and just as your mind begins to race with questions of what happened and who did this to him, we follow him through a sombre mood throughout the visual. As the movie unfolds, you begin to realise that his injuries are somewhat self inflicted as he drowns his sorrows alone at a bar, IN BROUGHT DAYLIGHT. He’s got some deep issues we think. We’re totally digging how the video is done in an almost reverse sequence while showing you how he got to the position in the opening owed to a tragic ending. Bravo!
In his second visual, we get a more fierce character from B.O.Y Wonder who asserts his ambitious and determined nature in Plugga alongside PJay and 3TWO1. The dark lit, smoky visual will give you crew FOMO as you watch the fellas stunt in all black, looking like the coolest kids on the block. The editing on this video is very clean and engaging. There’s a risk in studio shoots in that the eye may grow tired of the monotonous location but Blacklight somehow manages to always kill it. Great work from the team.
@Zoocci_CokeDope Signs To @VthSeason
Zoocci Coke Dope hinted at the end of this past weekend that he’s got a “big announcement this week.” Naturally, we thought he’s got a massive feature hidden under his sleeves, or something music related. Well, it turns out that it is indeed big news: homie is officially the newest signee under Vth Season’s wing. SHU!
Here’s what he had to say about this new development, “I’m excited to start this new venture in my career, a whole lot of hard work and sleepless nights became the fruit of my efforts. I’m mostly humbled by the support and belief from Vth Season in pursuing my dreams with me. This is like when the Cavs first signed Lebron, I’m just really happy to be a part of the team and I’m ready to take my career to the next level. I told Benza to bet on me, it’s a guaranteed flip.”
It makes our hearts smile knowing that big guns like Vth Season still have it in them to keep believing in fresh talent, after all, they are known for making stars out of the newest talents on the scene. Raphael Benza of Vth Season says that they will be dropping Zoocci’s All Night Long with A-Reece as a continental single that will be followed up with a visual! YES PLEASE! Congratulations Zoocci, this is your moment to shine, we know you’re in good hands.
@Marazamc Announces Official Summer Single With @augustdakid
Ke Dezemba boss! And, yes we can start our festive season ahead of time, this is the country of many a possibility. Just in time, Maraza announces his official summer single with August Child titled Thando Lwakho. Here comes a little confusion though, the song also appears on his iSpillion EP but is originally done with The Blaqshoez. This leads us to believe that the single version might be revamped, or a completely new record. Who knows? Either way, we’re excited to have him joining the list of tracks on our festive playlist. Bakene nduna!
Ps. You know we got you with the rest of the scoop – including the song itself.
