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.

Sudan Declares State of Emergency, As Military Dissolves Transitional Government

As the North African country edged closer to democracy, Sudan's military has seized power.

Sudan's military has seized power over the North African country, arresting multiple civilian leaders, including the current Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok. The power-sharing, unstable coalition, called the Sovereign Council, was created as a transitional government after the fall of dictator Omar al-Bashir in 2019, in an attempt to move towards a democratic Sudan.

The Sudanese public has been split in recent weeks as groups protested for a military-run state, while others pushed for a civilian lead, democratic nation. Last week, the Prime Minister vocalized his plans towards a full transition to civilian rule, and his plans to have that body in place by November 17, echoing the voices of thousands of Sudanese demonstrators who showed up in hoards to demand that the promise of Sudan's pro-democracy movement be honored. But on Monday the PM and multiple government ministers and officials were placed under arrest, resulting in Sudan's top general's declaring State of Emergency.

General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan said in a televised statement, "To rectify the revolution's course, we have decided to declare a state of emergency nationwide… dissolve the transitional sovereign council, and dissolve the cabinet." His statement came as soldiers fired live rounds at anti-military protestors, outside of the army headquarters in the capital.

Internet services were cut across the country around dawn and the main roads and bridges into Khartoum shut, before soldiers stormed the headquarters of Sudan's state broadcaster in the capital's twin city of Omdurman, the ministry said. After months of rising tensions in the country, army and paramilitary troops have been deployed across the capital city, Khartoum, with the airports and internet access being shut down. As a result of the coup, hundreds of protestors have taken to the streets, demanding the return of a civilian ruled and the transitional government, the BBC reports.

Demonstrators have spread to a number of Sudanese cities including Atbara, Wad Madani, and Port Sudan, and more are expected to attend the call for action. "We will not leave the streets until the civilian government is back and the transition is back," protest attendee Sawsan Bashir told AFP. While demonstrator Haitham Mohamed says, "We are ready to give our lives for the democratic transition in Sudan."
