Watch Anatii’s Stunning Music Video For ‘WENA’

Anatii shares stunning music video.

South African artist and producer Anatii's latest music video is directed by himself and Lindo Langa, like most of his recent videos. The video for "WENA" shows different couples celebrating each other and their love. People of different ages, genders, race and sexual orientation can all be seen flourishing in each other's company in the stunning visuals.


The video opens with a voiceover by legendary South African news anchor Noxolo Grootboom, who ends her piece with her trademark signature "Ndinithanda nonke emakhaya."

"WENA" is the latest single from Anatii's stellar sophomore album, 2018's IYEZA, which is now nominated for the SAMAs (South African Music Awards). The artist has been enjoying the embrace from his fans for the new sound he introduced on IYEZA, and he clearly has more singles to release from the project.
