Boddhi Satva & Badi's Video For 'Kitendi' Is A Black Vintage Fashion Dream

"The art direction and wardrobe give a hybrid mixture of styling eras with a forward-thinking approach," says Boddhi Satva.

Central African DJ and producer Boddhi Satva is sharing the new video for “Kitendi,” featuring Congolese-Belgian rapper Badi—a track that sees the MC flex over paralyzing kicks and bass lines.

The video, which we are premiering here today, was art directed by London-based dandies Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh of ACF with vintage styling by Amah Ayivi. 

It showcases the lovely people at Café Barge in Paris with flashes of of legendary African musicians such as Stervos Niarcos, Papa Wemba and Kester Emeneya who pioneered “La SAPE,” a fashion movement in the 60s.

“‘Kitendi,’” says Boddhi Satva, “took Badi and I out of our musical comfort zone. The art direction by Art Comes First and wardrobe by Marché Noir give a hybrid mixture of styling eras with a forward-thinking approach. Most importantly, this project is a 100% Pan African effort.”
