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.

Michael Kiwanuka Wins Highly Coveted 2020 Mercury Prize

The British-Ugandan artist proves that staying true to yourself will get you further than you can imagine.

British-Ugandan musician Michael Kiwanuka has gone on to win the 2020 Mercury Prize at this year's virtual awards ceremony.

The win was assigned to Kiwanuka's 2019 album KIWANUKA, produced by Danger Mouse and Inflo. KIWANUKA, Michael's third full-length so far, seems to be the artists' most personal one yet.

In his own words, Kiwanuka told New Statesman, "I thought, what better way to say that you're comfortable with who you are than by using just your name? KIWANUKA goes against fame, it goes against success. It's not in the pocket, it's not a smooth rock'n'roll name that's up in lights. It can be clumsy, if you haven't seen it before."

Well, we are certainly grateful for the singer's personal evolution as it has landed him top honors in the industry, as well as, amongst his die hard fans.

The artist said of his win, "I don't even know what to say - I'm speechless. This is amazing...I don't even have any words. This is ridiculous, it's crazy! I'm so happy. Third time's a charm. It's blown my mind. I'm over the moon, I'm so excited - this is for art, for music, for albums. This is the only thing I've ever wanted to do so to win a Mercury is a dream come true. I'm so happy. Music and art means so much to me and this is an award that celebrates that so I'm over the moon."
