Emtee’s Video for ‘Thank You’ Is All About Showing Gratitude

Watch Emtee's latest music video.

South African rapper and singer Emtee just released the video to the closing song of his sophomore album, Manando, which came out last year.


The video lives up to the song's lyrics, in which the artist is expressing gratitude to those who mean a lot to him—family, friends and fans. In the video, you can see Emtee and his goons roaming the streets, and him taking selfies with fans. He also celebrates his debut album Avery (2016) going gold.

His two sons also make a cameo on the video.

"Thank You" is highly likely the last music video from Manando, as Emtee is preparing to drop the sequel to his 2015 EP D.I.Y. (a gem of note).

Watch the emotive video for "Thank You" below, and don't be ashamed when your eyes start to water. Ours did, too.

Young people in Nigeria have successfully managed to use technological innovations to organize and make the #EndSARS protests run incredibly efficiently and easily. This moment will go down in history as a revolution that was birthed via technology.

It has been more than a week since young people in Nigeria took to the streets to demand that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, infamously known as SARS, be scrapped for good. Created in 1992, this police unit was originally set up to beat back armed robbery, the use of firearms and rising cases of kidnappings that grew in the late eighties. However, the unit went rogue, becoming more notorious for its savagery than actual crime-fighting. With a rap sheet ranging from profiling, harassment and assault to, in more extreme cases, slaughtering innocent citizens, these quasi-officers have unleashed terror on the nation for more than two decades.

Their victims are predominantly young Nigerians profiled on appearance—whether they drive exotic vehicles, use the latest gadgets, have their hair dyed or locked, or have piercings. In some cases, working in tech often gets conflated with financial fraud. For people who don't meet the absurd criteria, the mood of the officer can often become the difference between life and death.
