Watch Audiomarc’s Video for ‘Catch It’ Featuring Nasty C and Tellaman

Audiomarc shares the visuals for his single 'Catch It.'

Nasty C's tour DJ, Audiomarc, released his debut single "Catch It" last year. The song features Nasty C himself and his frequent collaborator Tellaman.


"Catch It" is a light-hearted banger; Nasty C and Tellaman share some obnoxious brags and sexual innuendos over a catchy trap instrumental.

The song's music video looks like it was shot in Japan. The clip shows Nasty and Tellaman's performance scenes shot on top of trademark Japanese architecture. There are a few cutaways from the city streets.

Nasty C and Tellaman's chemistry is always a pleasure to witness on songs and videos. "Catch It" is yet another display of it, and it's enhanced by Windows XP visual effects.

South Africa Makes History with its First Ever Healthcare Facility for Transgender People

The University of the Witwatersrand's Reproductive Health Institute is creating a safe space for transgender people seeking healthcare.

South Africa has made history after it opened the doors to its first dedicated healthcare facility for transgender people. According to eNCA, the Reproductive Health Institute, which has been set up by the prestigious University of the Witwatersrand, wants to create a safe space for transgender South Africans by removing the stigma and prejudice they often face while trying to access healthcare in the country. It is a major stride against the backdrop of a continent that generally still treats members of the LGBT community as second-class citizens.

The film was Nigeria's first ever entry to the Oscars—a historic moment. Similarly, Austrian filmmaker Sudabeh Mortezai's Joy, a film about Nigerian sex workers living in Vienna, has also been disqualified by the Academy in the same category, according to Deadline.
