After the success of her hit single Kumkanikazi, Jozi rapper Behold Benzo gifted us with her incredibly stunning music video for the track, leaving many viewers having to pick their jaws off the floor.
Kumkanikazi: A breakdown of the visual
The song itself is a heavy trap banger with hard 808’s and loud bass being produced by the talented 031Choppa and becoming Benzo’s standout single off her Kumkanikazi album which released in 2020.
Only a few seconds into the video, many were surprised to see Benzo wearing an outfit some would deem “revealing” however for her decision to display this in her visuals shows us that Benzo is here to make a statement.
The video takes us through a journey, watching a young girl hanging with her friends at the skate park while she carries a retro boom box and continues to drop Benzo’s hard bars. In other scenes Benzo’s seen wearing the “revealing” outfit while also rocking a spiky blonde wig in a miserable looking room while she continues to rap and in the final scene we see the rapper climbing out of a blacked out Range Rover in a stunning outfit going on to walk through a path that is slightly lit on fire on either side.
The video is a great visual experience having been directed by Kat Gordana and Franasonic and they did an outstanding job bringing this banger to life.
Behold Benzo: One for the future
The 20 year old is really impressing after the release of her 031Choppa produced Kumkanikazi project displaying a truly enjoyable and exciting listening experience bringing the Vernacular rap genre to the next level.
With the rise of Xhosa rap having artists like Dee Koala, SimulationRxps and Trusted SLK blowing up on the scene, Benzo is doing a great job of being in the discussion of maybe becoming the best to do it.
After the release of her music video, the Johannesburg rapper has been receiving rave reviews on social media and we hope you check out her video.
