Watch the Minimalist Video For Sipho The Gift’s ‘Gal 6-17’ & 'Blessed'

SA rapper Sipho The Gift releases a new music video from his debut album.

South African rapper Sipho The Gift was featured as Apple Music's new artist spotlight for February.

He just released another music video for two songs that appear on his intensely personal debut album Kintsugi (2017).


The music video is a back-to-back combo of the songs "Gal 6-17" and "Blessed." The minimalist video is shot in a desert with the rapper's performance scenes intercutting with two mysterious dancers.

It suits the two songs well—the minimalism plays into their self-introspection and personal nature. The video was shot and directed by Cape Town-based Motion Billy.

Watch the video below.
