Watch Major Lazer & Rudimental's South African-Shot Video For 'Let Me Live' feat. Mr Eazi

The new Johannesburg-shot visual spotlights Pantsula dancers and the Gqom scene.

Rudimental and Major Lazer are sharing their brand new collaborative single "Let Me Live," an energetic dancehall-influenced production which sees them joined by Mr Eazi and UK vocalist Anne-Marie. It also features additional vocals from Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

The track's accompanying video is something to behold, as it features some show-stealing shots of pantsula dancers and highlights the rising Gqom scene in South Africa.


The music video, which was directed by South African filmmaker and photographer Chris Saunders, was shot across Johannesburg and London and produced by our own OkayAfrica alumn Allison Swank, Believe Media and Ola! Films.

It's a striking, beautiful clip packed with South African references. This track will surely be getting airplay across parties on both sides of the Atlantic all year.

All in a day's work! Nigerian superstar Wizkid is climbing his way further and further up the charts (and our lists of favourites) by releasing visuals to accompany track "No Stress," off of his freshly released album Made In Lagos.

It's hard not to move to the track on its own, and now we have a plethora of beautiful African women to virtually jam out with. The release of the second single off the high anticipated MIL album comes as Wizkid toyed with fans by simply tweeting "No Stress."

So far, the album has amassed over a million streams in under 24 hours on Boomplay. The 14-track album features music heavy weights including Burna Boy, Skepta, Damian Marley, H.E.R., Ella Mai and Terri.

The album was originally meant to drop two weeks ago, but with the political and social terror occurring presently in his home country Nigeria, Wizkid chose to delay it.
