Bongeziwe Mabandla has been making waves in and around the local music industry for a while not and bagged his first South African Music Award earlier this year for his debut album ‘Mangaliso’ in the Best Alternative Music category. Now, the star has released the official music video for the record’s title track – and it’s beautiful!
The cinematic video shows Bongeziwe as a giant walking through beautiful areas of the Eastern Cape. Bongeziwe is depicted as a giant and the video explores the concept of extraordinary things happening in an ordinary world. He picks up trucks as if they are toys and plays guitar while sitting on a bridge. We see the creature appear and seem to be taking a walk around the world. The video is about the thought of being something bigger than what you are. It starts as an ordinary scene, but something magical is naturally happening along the way.
“I have loved director [Warwick] Allan’s work for while – I had seen some of his previous work and had a instant trust with him when we came together for this shoot. The song and video is about experiencing something you never expected to, combined with an out-of-this-world feeling that is hard to describe,” the singer tells us. “The world is the Eastern Cape, my greatest inspiration, and it’s just a simple Bongeziwe story in Bongeziwe Land.”
