After almost a year of waiting for them visuals, digital Maskandi maestro, Mashayabhuqe KaMamba, finally just dropped the music video for his popular track, Shandarabaa Ekhelemendeh (meaning 'the awakening'), featuring his bra from another ma – legendary rapper Okmalumkoolkat.
The raw music video is set in various gritty, local city spaces and juxtaposes modern day Mzansi with traditional Africa and the strange relationship between the urban African man with these two merging worlds. This is what Mashayabhuqe had to say about the meaning of 'Shandarabaa Ekhelemendeh', 'the awakening':
"Here I'm talking about REALISING who and what's around you. What's in your Society that keeps on happening but nobody gets to stop it, and I'm referring to unfavourable situations. I'm talking about our minds that are being "controlled" by the System that's dismally failing us but nobody is saying anything. So much is happening around us but we tend to become oblivious and focus on what wouldn't benefit us in the end."
The track pops off Mashayabhuqe KaMamba's The Black Excellence Show EP (Deluxe Edition), which was released in January this year. Peep the video to 'Shandarabaa Ekhelemendeh' here:
