Indigo Stella Shares Pristine Visuals for ‘Boss Up’

Watch Indigo Stella's new music video for 'Boss Up.'

Indigo Stella's new music video is perfect. From the shots to the lighting and cinematography, the visuals are a work of virtuosos including director Young Matee and cinematographer Seizmeister, among others.


The visuals shows performance scenes of a triumphant and pompous Indigo Stella. Most of the scenes are shot in low light and have a consistent texture that suits the music they represent.

Indigo Stella released "Boss Up" in March last year, leading up to the release of her stellar EP Indigo, which followed in September. In the song, just like in the rest of the EP, the artist showcases her abilities as a rapper and overall artist. You may not want to sleep on Indigo.

Indigo Stella is currently signed to Mistro Records, the label that released both "Boss Up" and Indigo. The young artist is one of the most promising new voices in South African hip-hop and music in general.

In the new decade, we hope to see her and her counterparts grow into household names that will define an era like the big names who came before them in the previous decades.

Interview: Adekunle Gold Channels Refreshing Truths Into Afropop

Adekunle Gold achieves an artistic freedom that most mainstream artists don't have through a smooth balance of introspection and club bangers.

A few years ago, Adekunle Gold broke out into the scene with a refreshing way of carrying himself, presenting his art and speaking his truth with music. His debut single "Sade" started this journey of chart topping releases, sold out shows, and the constantly evolving sound that graces African airwaves. Gold's self assurance made him stand out from the very beginning, as his sound was delivered with intent, compassion, and stuffed with personal truths.

Not many artists are willing to try new things with their music, and in order to maintain mainstream success, some cling to one sound, one image and direction often crafted from fragments of their first hit. These artists get stuck trying to recreate a capsule in time, while true artists are open to the dynamic of change, and the necessity of renewal.

Adekunle Gold is one of a handful in his profession who draws on a spectrum of experiences to make honest music which is consistent with the self-revelations of a growing man. This has become his biggest strength, allowing him to craft contemplative songs like "Sade" and "Oreke" and still create afropop magic like "Something Different"
