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.”
