Watch M.anifest's Beautiful Ballet Film For 'Simple Love'

A new short film from the Ghanaian rapper and songwriter.

M.anifest has always had a penchant for highly-stylized videos—we've seen it in his recent collaborations, as well in all the clips from his latest album, Nowhere Cool.

In his newest music video for "Simple Lovel," M.anifest and director Makere Thekiso follow a ballet dancer as she navigates her way through crowded streets and a fish market in the port city of Tema, Ghana in slow-motion.

The new short film apparently won an award for cinematography before it was even released, according to a Tweet from the rapper.
