Watch Priddy Ugly and Bontle Modiselle’s Music Video for ‘Sweetie Lavo’

Rick Jade (Priddy Ugly and Bontle Modiselle) showcase their wedding in new music video.

Priddy Ugly and Bontle Modiselle recently got married. The couple recently shared an aftermovie of their wedding in the form of a music video for their newly-released single "Sweety Lavo."


The music video is filmed by Nkululeko Armsdeal Lebambo of CideFX Films, who has worked with both Priddy Ugly as a solo act and alongside Bontle as the duo Rick Jade.

Rick Jade said this about the video:

"We wanted to showcase our tradition to educate the audience on the cultural background of what takes place in a South African Traditional wedding. A wedding in the South African essence is not just a union between bride and groom, it is a union of families, a union of cultures and traditions, a marrying of spiritual ancestors and forefathers. We wanted to showcase certain aspects of how the families engage, the gifting ceremony between the families & show beautiful marrying of modern and traditional Sesotho attire. Ultimately we wanted to share our joy with our audience & make them feel like they were present."

"Sweety Lavo" follows the duo's full-length project D.N.A (Da New Africa), which was centered on the couple celebrating their 10-year union and their pregnancy.

The Gorillaz Enlist Fatoumata Diawara for New Track 'Désolé

A stunning collaboration that we didn't even know we needed.

The Gorillaz enlist none other than Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara for their latest single "Désolé," the second single from the hit-making British band's Song Machine installation project.

"Making Désolé with Fatou was a real moment for me, you know," the band's drummer Russel Hobbs is quoted as saying in a statement via Pitchfork. Désole translates to "sorry" in French, but despite it's apologetic title, the song is a laid-back groove, elevated by vocals from lead singer Damon Albarn and Diawara, who sings in English, French and Bambara.

"She's an African Queen," Russel adds. "This lady made the song what it is, beautiful, like life. What can I say about Désolé? They say sorry is the hardest word, but that's not true.... Try saying antidisestablishmentarianism with a mouth full of gluten free cronuts on a speed boat without licking your lips."
