A new video by Alec Lomami for his track ‘CLV’, directed by Tlhonepho Thobejane and shot to the always picturesque (pardon my French) backdrop of Cape Town. Including some amazing custom video game shots and featuring Congolese diaspora artists Sammus (NY) and Badi Banx (Brussels). Alec Lomami is a...
Even if it’s filled to the brim with Arab world stereotypes aside (desert, camel, mysterious transactions on a sand dune, Arab money, belly dance, a dude with a falcon), you gotta LOVE the new Sarkodie video to the single ‘Illuminati’ (the single itself was released towards the end of...
