South African Hip-Hop Awards 2018: Anatii’s ‘Thixo Onofefe’ nominated for Best Music Video



South African Hip-Hop Awards

Anatii’s ‘Thixo Onofefe’ music video has been nominated in the Best Music Video category at the 2018 South African Hip-Hop Awards.

The single is taken off Anatii’s latest album, ‘Iyeza,’ which was released on Friday, 5 October 2018.

In the video, a boy is given natural herbs by a traditional healer to give to Anatii in order to bring him back to consciousness. Many have gone on to describe the song and video as “future Africanism.”

Speaking to local media in an article published on Friday, 11 May 2018, Anatii explained the concept of the music video, and the motivation behind it.

“It’s just my abstract way of expressing myself about what is going on,” he said, “because I feel we’re not really telling the right messages, or portraying the right messages with our visuals [sic].”
