Cassper Nyovest and LA-Based Model Jessica Burciaga Get Cozy in The Video For ‘Move For Me’

Watch Cassper Nyovest's latest music video.

Cassper Nyovest's latest music video was filmed in a peaceful forest at the edge of a cliff. Nature—vegetation and water—plays a backdrop for Cassper and Jessica Burciaga to show off their great bodies.


The video is directed by Yeah Lenzo, who Cass has worked with many times before. Drone shots ensure you get to experience the beauty of the location.

The rapper announced a few weeks ago that he was flying the model down to South Africa for the video. The responses were mixed—while some were happy for Cassper, others felt he was undermining (South) African women, especially black, by the move.

A piece of information that may help you understand Cassper's move is that the artist and his manager T-Lee Moiloa deliberately create a talking point around the rapper's releases.

"A lot of the things we do are very deliberate," T-Lee said at Back To The City in 2017. "Some of them, deliberate to shake up the tree, to speak about certain things. We hardly ever do things to piss people off, it's always to create talkability (sic), and we've managed to do that for the past four years."

Race and colorism are issues that are guaranteed to have people talking.

"Move For Me" is the latest single from the South African rap superstar's latest album, Sweet and Short, which mostly consists of kwaito and amapiano production. "Move For Me" is a mellow tune, which is made even smoother by Boskasie's spacious and effortless vocals.

Reekado Banks Recalls The Carnage of The #EndSARS Protests In Single 'Ozumba Mbadiwe'

The Nigerian singer pays his respects to those lost during last year's #EndSARS protests.

Nigerian singer and songwriter Reekado Banks is back with a track that is as socially important as it is a banger. It seems fitting for the singer's first solo release of the year to be a tribute to his fellow countrypeople fighting for a country that they all wish to live in. The 27-year-old Afrobeats crooner has returned with endearing track 'Ozumba Mbadiwe', honoring the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protests that saw the Nigerian government authorize an onslaught of attacks on Nigerian citizens for their anti-government demonstrations.

The protests took the world by storm, additionally because the Nigerian government insists that none of the police brutality happened. In an attempt to gaslight the globe, Nigerian officials have come out to hoards to deny any and all accusations of unlawfully killing peaceful protesters. Banks mentions the absurd denials in the track, singing "October 20, 2020 something happened with the government, they think say we forget," in the second verse. Reekado's reflective lyrics blend smoothly and are supported by the upbeat, effortless Afrobeat rhythm.

In another reflective shoutout to his home, 'Ozumba Mbadiwe' is named after a popular expressway on Lagos Island that leads to the infamous Lekki Toll Gate where protesters were shot at, traumatized, and murdered. Although packed with conscious references, the P.Priime produced track is a perfect amalgamation of the talents that Reekado Banks has to offer; a wispy opening verse, a hook to kill, and an ethereal aura to mark this as a song as a hit. On "Ozumba Mbadiwe," all the elements align for Reekado's signature unsinkable sound to take flight.
