South African afro-pop singer, Vusi Nova, has released the official music video for his hit single, ‘As’phelelanga,’ featuring Jessica Mbangeni, which is taken off his platinum-selling album, ‘Manyan-nyan.’
The single pays tribute to some of the continent’s fallen legends such as Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Sfiso Ncwane and Nana Coyote, amongst others, and the music video is a visual representation of that.
Various South African media personalities are featured in the music video, collectively celebrating the legends that paved the way for them. The Mampofu siblings, Zahara, DJ Sbu and the late Dumi Masilela’s widow, Simphiwe Ngema, are just some of the familiar faces that make an appearance in the video. The majority of the personalities are seen dressed in traditional Xhosa regalia, evidently celebrating their roots and heritage.
The video ends off with a powerful image of the late struggle stalwart, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.
