Real life couple and musicians, Bontle Moloi and Priddy Ugly, have released the music video for their current single, Sweetie Lavo, detailing the events of their wedding day.
On Thursday, 7 November 2019 Bontle Moloi and Priddy Ugly, known collectively under the stage name, Rick Jade, released the music video for their current single, Sweetie Lavo. The single is from their debut released, D.N.A (Da New Afrika), and was released on Friday, 11 October 2019, as the celebration soundtrack of their nuptials, with the cover art of the single featuring an image they took at the wedding.
Similarly, the music video, which is a mini-film by Nkuleko Lembambo, uses footage from their wedding day. The music video provides touching glimpses of what happened on the day, while educating their fans on the fundamentals of a traditional wedding.
The music video starts with Priddy getting ready to go Bontle’s family. We are then taken through the process of families presenting gifts to each immediate member of the bride’s and groom’s families.
The video then reveals the wedding ceremony, including the wedding ring exchanges and the couple’s first kiss as husband and wife. Thereafter, the video takes us through the festivities that took place after the ceremony. Towards the end of the video, there is a touching moment of Bontle getting teary-eyed and Priddy wiping the tears away.
The couple released the music without any promotion, only taking to social on the day of the release to announce, “Once in a while, life shares a fairy tale with us. We [are] sharing that joy with you.”
