Watch The Music Video for Astryd Brown and Nadia Nakai’s Banger ‘Lately’

Astryd Brown and Nadia Nakai flex on us in their latest music video.

South African singer Astryd Brown roped in the rapper Nadia Nakai for her latest single, "Lately," which was released in July. In the song's recently released video, the two artists spend some time in the desert on camelback and rock bikinis in a cruise ship.


On "Lately," both artists spit some lofty lines. "Really, lately, I been on some shit/ Bitches over there, they can't relate," sings Astryd on the hook, while Nadia, in her verse, raps about rolling up in a drop top, lacing her hair icy, and champagne making her feisty.

Cameroon Holds Vigil to Remember Children Killed in School Attack

Residents in Kumba paid their respects to the seven lives lost, and those injured during the attack over the weekend.

In the latest tragedy to come from Cameroon's historically violent clash between Anglo and Francophone citizens, seven children were murdered after attackers stormed a school with guns and machetes over the weekend.

In what has been deemed as the "darkest and saddest day," by Bishop Agapitus Nfon of Kumba, armed attackers stormed the Mother Francisca International Bilingual Academy, targeting students aged 9 to 12. The tragic event saw dozens of children injured, some critically.

The attack has shocked the nation, with both local and international agencies condemning the horrible offense. On Monday, Cameroonian President Paul Biya denounced the "horrific murder" of the school children, and alluded to the "appropriate measures" being taken in order to bring justice to the families of the victims. Prime Minister Dion Ngute Joseph shared his condolences via a tweet saying, "I bow before the memory of these innocent kids."

The Cameroonian presidency and governing body have blamed Anglophone 'separatists' for the attack, though the group claims no part in the attack.

Human rights groups, however, have blamed both opposing parties, as the conflict has led to the death of over 3,000 deaths and resulted in more than 700,000 Cameroonians fleeing their homes and the country.
