Watch Muzi’s Latest Music Video For ‘Questions (Other Draft)’

Muzi just dropped the visuals for his latest single.

A few months ago, South Africa's Muzi released the song "Questions (Other Draft)," which was a refurbished version of "Questions" from his debut album Afrovision.


The visuals for "Questions (Other Draft)" are here. The video, which was co-directed by Muzi and Stephan Hambsch, is open-ended, showing Muzi struggling with a lover who now seems disinterested in him. Then there are other layers; for instance, Muzi can be seen running through the streets of Joburg, and he gets to meet himself towards the end of the video. The concurrent stories are up for interpretation by the viewer.

Muzi released Afrovision earlier this year, and it has been one of the most loved albums of 2018. The album blended the artist's electronic background with (South) African indigenous influences.

Reekado Banks Recalls The Carnage of The #EndSARS Protests In Single 'Ozumba Mbadiwe'

The Nigerian singer pays his respects to those lost during last year's #EndSARS protests.

Nigerian singer and songwriter Reekado Banks is back with a track that is as socially important as it is a banger. It seems fitting for the singer's first solo release of the year to be a tribute to his fellow countrypeople fighting for a country that they all wish to live in. The 27-year-old Afrobeats crooner has returned with endearing track 'Ozumba Mbadiwe', honoring the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protests that saw the Nigerian government authorize an onslaught of attacks on Nigerian citizens for their anti-government demonstrations.

The protests took the world by storm, additionally because the Nigerian government insists that none of the police brutality happened. In an attempt to gaslight the globe, Nigerian officials have come out to hoards to deny any and all accusations of unlawfully killing peaceful protesters. Banks mentions the absurd denials in the track, singing "October 20, 2020 something happened with the government, they think say we forget," in the second verse. Reekado's reflective lyrics blend smoothly and are supported by the upbeat, effortless Afrobeat rhythm.

In another reflective shoutout to his home, 'Ozumba Mbadiwe' is named after a popular expressway on Lagos Island that leads to the infamous Lekki Toll Gate where protesters were shot at, traumatized, and murdered. Although packed with conscious references, the P.Priime produced track is a perfect amalgamation of the talents that Reekado Banks has to offer; a wispy opening verse, a hook to kill, and an ethereal aura to mark this as a song as a hit. On "Ozumba Mbadiwe," all the elements align for Reekado's signature unsinkable sound to take flight.
