Lady Donli Shares the Music Video for Her Infectious Single 'Cash'

The Nigerian artist declares she's #AddictedToCash on an exciting new single, produced by The Cavemen.

Update 4/8/19:

Lady Donli shares the music video for her latest single "Cash," directed by Kewa Oni and Seun Opabisi. It sees the singer performing before a small, intimate audience in a disco ball-filled room. She's cool and energetic as she sings about her love for cash, backed by the talented production crew The Cavemen. And, since it's only right, the video ends with the singer being sprayed with wads of dollar bills.

Watch the music video for 'Cash" below.

Lady Donli is back with her first single of the year, and it doesn't disappoint. The Nigerian artist has shared the infectious track "Cash," from her forthcoming album Enjoy Your Life.

The fun, mid-tempo track, produced by Benjamin James and Kingsley 'Knote' Okorie of the Nigerian live band The Cavemen as well as the artist herself, is all about the pursuit of money. "I'm addicted to cash" she sings several times in her honeyed voice atop the song's catchy production.

The song gives us major warm weather vibes, brought together by the singer's alt-jazz vocals and The Cavemen's airy and string-filled production.

"Fueled by the hustle of life, rhythmic flows of highlife and the addiction to chasing the key to the beauties of the world, this song speaks our truth; we're all addicted to cash, making it, spending it, losing it," said the artists of the song's theme.

Last year, the artist spoke with OkayAfrica about some of the struggles of making it as a Nigerian artist. She shared the single "Games" last June, and we've been looking forward to more from the singer since. It looks like we won't have to wait too much longer though, as her upcoming album Enjoy Your Life is set to drop this summer.

Listen to "Cash" below.

Miss South Africa Wants Men to Write Love Letters to Women to Fight Against Gender-Based Violence

Unfortunately, there's nothing stopping abusive men from writing these love letters too.

South Africa's newly crowned Miss SA Zozibini "Zozi" Tunzi has launched a "HeForShe" campaign which aims to tackle the alarming rates of femicide and gender-based violence in the country. The campaign, which is in partnership with the South African arm of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), wants South African men to step up and join the collective fight against abuse. However, the campaign has been criticized by many because of the way in which it wants men to step—by writing love letters to women. The campaign has divided South Africans, particularly those on social media.

After publicly accusing former President Yahya Jammeh of rape, young women under the #IamToufah banner are standing against sexual assault in the country.

The 23-year-old alleged that Jammeh had raped her following her refusal of his marriage proposal during his time in office back in 2015.
