Cassper Nyovest Imagines The Day we Take Back Our Land in The Video For ‘Ksazobalit’

Watch Cassper Nyovest's clever video for "Ksazobalit"

On what is one of the most creative videos of the year, Cassper Nyovest is dressed like an Afrikaner farmer. He gyrates on a farm, and so do the dancers on the video. The rapper's tongue-in-cheek video takes inspiration from the memes and tweets about what black South Africans will do with it when land that was stolen from them by colonialists is returned.


He dances, drives a tractor, parties with his Family Tree Family and even just lies on the lawn with a big ass smile on his face.

Even the commander in chief of the EFF, Julius Malema, who has been an advocate for land expropriation without compensation, showed love to Nyovest for the video.

We have been complaining about Nyovest's biting, and with this video he has silenced us. Even though on the song, he still sounds like Offset from Migos, this video makes up for all that.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
