Watch Prince Kaybee and Msaki’s Motivational Music Video For ‘Fetch Your Life’

The visuals for Prince Kaybee and Msaki's collaboration are here.

Prince Kaybee and Msaki's collaborative song "Fetch Your Life" is motivational. It encourages us to reach for our dreams and do the things that make us feel alive. She sings in the hook:

"Fetch your life, go and be alive/ Ain't nobody living out here"

The song's video follows the same story arc—you can see a selection of women in different scenarios each reaching that moment when they feel like giving up. But then they have a change of mind, and decide to give it another shot.

"Fetch Your Life" is taken from Prince Kaybee's latest album Re Mmino, which came out last month. The album also includes the DJ and producer's popular hit "Banomoya," which features Busiswa and TNS, and was the soundtrack of choice to South Africans in the summer. The album also features artists such as Zanda Zakuza, Indlovukazi and a few others.

Watch the music video for "Fetch Your Life" and stream Re Mmino underneath.

#BlackOutEid is an annual celebration which highlights the diversity within the Muslim world. It began in 2015, when Aamina Mohamed created the hashtag to combat the erasure of Black people within the community. Since then, the hashtag has been used across social media with Black Muslims using it to share their sharpest Eid looks.
