Emtee Shares Visuals For ‘Wave’

Watch Emtee's music video for 'Wave'.

A year since its release, Emtee's single "Wave" finally gets treated to visuals. The song was released around the same time last year, and was one of the first singles the rapper, singer and producer dropped since taking the independent route after leaving Ambitiouz Entertainment.

The video was shot in Cape Town on the coast and was directed by Shakeel Toefy. It shows scenes of Emtee performing at the beach, spending time on the balcony of a mansion and performing inside and in front of a Mercedes Benz—a fitting detail as Emtee raps, "I'm putting in work, back on the turf, savin' up for a Merc."

"Wave" is to appear on Emtee's upcoming album Logan, named after his youngest son (his debut album Avery (2016) was named after his oldest son).

The tracklist for Logan was released last year, and it revealed that the likes of Lolli, Flash Ikumkani, Tuckshop Bafanaz, Siya Seya and J-Smash will be featured on the project which currently has no release date.

Logan is an important album for Emtee as it's the first project he will be releasing under his label Emtee Records. The pioneer of trap music in South Africa's first two albums Avery and Manando and the EP DIY II were released by Ambitiouz Entertainment, a label that knows the right strings to pull in promoting artists and one that's infamous for the controversy surrounding how it treats its artists. More about that here.

How Relocating to Ghana Helped Reinvigorate Jewelry Designer Aisha Asamany's Work

Moving to Ghana gave Aisha Asamany's luxury jewelry brand, inspired by Adinkra symbols that traditionally project strength, fearlessness, love and power, renewed verve to tell personal stories of her growing clientele.

In 2019, the government of Ghana made a global splash with its Year of Return initiative – the campaign sought to encourage the African diaspora to return home to the continent, specifically to Ghana.

Linked to the 400th year commemoration of the first recorded landing of slaves in the United States, it became a launchpad for the Ghanaian government to convince Black people around the world to permanently settle in the West African country.

Aisha Asamany, a corporate management consultant for high-profile UK financial institutions turned self-taught luxury jewelry designer was one of many who heeded the call, trading in the corporate life for a spiritual and an entrepreneurial journey – one of joy, appreciation, and representation in her fatherland.
