The "Practice" video is a visual spectacle, one that captures the essence of Ghana and South Africa. Nadia and Vic Mensa's on-screen chemistry is an absolute beauty to watch! Dressed in ripped denim shorts and an Ankara shirt, and surrounded by blazing background flames, Nadia Nakai serves all of the sexiness — while Vic Mensa who is half Ghanaian, showcases the lyrical prowess that got him signed him onto Jay Z's Roc Nation. In one of his lines, Vic Mensa raps about some of South Africa's hotspots — Johannesburg, Hillbrow and Yeoville, all cultural melting hotspots for fellow Africans living in South Africa. The popular young Ghanaian skate crew also makes an appearance marking Ghana's unique culture.

The visuals were directed by Ghanaian director KP Selorm, who has orchestrated a number of music videos by West African artists.

Interview

Sarkodie Is Not Feeling Any Pressure

The elite Ghanaian rapper affirms his king status with this seventh studio album, No Pressure.

Sarkodie is one of the most successful African rappers of all time. With over ten years of industry presence under his belt, there's no question about his prowess or skin in the game. Not only is he a pioneer of African hip-hop, he's also the most decorated African rapper, having received over 100 awards from close to 200 nominations over the span of his career.

What else does Sarkodie have to prove? For someone who has reached and stayed at the pinnacle of hip-hop for more than a decade, he's done it all. But despite that, he's still embracing new growth. One can tell just by listening to his latest album, No Pressure, Sarkodie's seventh studio album, and the follow-up to 2019's Black Love which brought us some of the Ghanaian star's best music so far. King Sark may be as big as it gets, but the scope of his music is still evolving.

Sonically, No Pressure is predominantly hip-hop, with the first ten tracks offering different blends of rap topped off with a handful of afrobeats and, finally, being crowned at the end with a gospel hip-hop cut featuring Ghanaian singer MOG. As far as the features go, Sark is known for collaborating mostly with his African peers but this time around he branches out further to feature a number of guests from around the world. Wale, Vic Mensa, and Giggs, the crème de la crème of rap in America and the UK respectively all make appearances, as well as Nigeria's Oxlade, South Africa's Cassper Nyovest, and his fellow Ghanaian artists Darkovibes and Kwesi Arthur.
