Watch A-Reece’s New Music Video for ‘We Both Know Better’

A-Reece releases a music video for 'We Both Know Better.'

After a silence that has been too long for his fans, A-Reece has resurfaced with a new music video for "We Both Know Better."


The music video was directed by Cape Town-based director Motion Billy. It was filmed in the Mother City and consists mostly of night scenes in the city's streets. Apart from the models featured in the video, A-Reece's longtime producer MashBeatz makes an appearance.

"We Both Know Better" is a song from A-Reece's latest project Reece Effect, which was released in April around the same time the Pretoria-based emcee hosted his Reece Effect concert.

The single sees Reece talk to a woman he just broke up with, expressing his desire to get back together with her even though they've both since moved on. He raps:

"I'm tryna change I'm a man of changes/ Having to text you even makes me anxious/ Part of my work is going different places/ No smile, straight faces to the strange faces/ Nobody acting like themselves these are strange faces"

The project was the last release from Reece, and he has been quite ever since, apart from releasing the single "Carele$$" a few days after releasing Reece Effect. He even skipped October 21, a date that Reece fans have grown to expect the lyricist to bless them with a release as he has in the since the release of his debut album Paradise in 2015 on the same date.

How Relocating to Ghana Helped Reinvigorate Jewelry Designer Aisha Asamany's Work

Moving to Ghana gave Aisha Asamany's luxury jewelry brand, inspired by Adinkra symbols that traditionally project strength, fearlessness, love and power, renewed verve to tell personal stories of her growing clientele.

In 2019, the government of Ghana made a global splash with its Year of Return initiative – the campaign sought to encourage the African diaspora to return home to the continent, specifically to Ghana.

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
