A few weeks ago, Sketchy Bongo made his highly-anticipated return to the music space as he teamed up with Durban-based singer Yashna for ‘On Fire’. The single serves as the first taste of the star’s upcoming project with Warner Music South Africa and the electronic pop track is a song about love in all forms, passion and positive energy. As the single continues to gain momentum around the country, the producer has just released the track’s official music video – and, as expected, it’s fire!
The video is set in an abandoned building in Johannesburg CBD and is a perfect visual companion to the track. “‘On Fire’, is a house track filled with emotion and energy, and this is what we wanted in the video,” Sketchy Bongo tells us. “The director, Rob dos Santos, executed our video perfectly. He went well above our expectations to create a video that is dynamic, extremely visually appealing, and really shows off our song in the most amazing way.”
Newcomer Yashna adds “I was my own stunt double on set which required me to be fearless, quite ironic considering the song speaks on loving fearlessly. The team I worked with were on fire both metaphorically and almost literally, all incredible energies! I was in my element the whole time, fulfilling my purpose.”
The single is the first in an exciting new era for Sketchy Bongo and we can’t wait to see what heat he brings next.
