Amandla: Bravo Le Roux and Yanga Chief bring the energy
The Amandla music video begins with Bravo Le Roux and Yanga Chief staring at the camera in a room filled with photographs on the wall.
This is when the beat drops, having Bravo’s energetic presence rap alongside Yanga in the same room.
The Bhuda La Way rapper continues to rap his verse inside of a vehicle, while his friends get lit in the backseat of the car.
Yanga does his entertaining verse while fitting on some fresh clothing items.
This music video heavily involves fashion.
We get a ton of appearances by popular sportswear company FUBU (For Us, By Us).
The music video is highly entertaining using background dancers, fashion models, and all-in-all the video is a vibe.
The effects used for the video are great, with crazy strobe lighting that flashes different colours in each scene.
However, at the beginning of the video, we are greeted with a warning to those who suffer from epilepsy.
We also receive a behind-the-scenes look at the shooting process, gifting viewers some amusing clips.
The music video was directed by DeWun Owusu who founded Iclass Media Net.
Check out the music video, now available on YouTube.
Yanga embracing the future of Xhosa Rap
The Utatakho rapper is definitely at the forefront when it comes to Xhosa rap music.
However, in recent times we have seen Yanga work a lot more with upcoming Xhosa rappers.
Besides Bravo Le Roux, he has also gone on to work with Soul T for his track IDYAN RE-UP alongside Flash Ikumkani and Bhut’Legend.
He even included Dee Koala in his remix for Utatakho which saw her work with Boity and Riky Rick.
It’s always great when established rappers push the younger generation and Yanga is definitely doing that.
