Tellaman Shares Colorful Music Video For ‘Whipped’ Featuring Nasty C and Shekhinah

Watch Tellaman's new music video.

"Whipped" is Durban is monumental. The song, which references 80s pop and disco sonically, showcases the chemistry of three of the best artists repping Durban right now. Tellaman and Shekhinah are South African R&B mainstays, while Nasty C is breaking boundaries for hip-hop.


"Whipped" is one of the strongest songs from Tellaman's stellar debut album God Decides, which came out in February. The album, which Tella produced in its entirety, is not heavy on features. Apart from Nasty C and Shekhinah, it also features appearances from crownedYung, Tay Iwar and Rowlene.

The music video for "Whipped" is as tangy as the song itself, from the colorful vintage outfits and the brightness of its mood. It gives you the same feeling being whipped does. The visuals were directed by Kyle White, a man who has conjured magical visuals for many other South African musicians in the past.

Interview

Sarkodie Is Not Feeling Any Pressure

The elite Ghanaian rapper affirms his king status with this seventh studio album, No Pressure.

Sarkodie is one of the most successful African rappers of all time. With over ten years of industry presence under his belt, there's no question about his prowess or skin in the game. Not only is he a pioneer of African hip-hop, he's also the most decorated African rapper, having received over 100 awards from close to 200 nominations over the span of his career.

What else does Sarkodie have to prove? For someone who has reached and stayed at the pinnacle of hip-hop for more than a decade, he's done it all. But despite that, he's still embracing new growth. One can tell just by listening to his latest album, No Pressure, Sarkodie's seventh studio album, and the follow-up to 2019's Black Love which brought us some of the Ghanaian star's best music so far. King Sark may be as big as it gets, but the scope of his music is still evolving.

Sonically, No Pressure is predominantly hip-hop, with the first ten tracks offering different blends of rap topped off with a handful of afrobeats and, finally, being crowned at the end with a gospel hip-hop cut featuring Ghanaian singer MOG. As far as the features go, Sark is known for collaborating mostly with his African peers but this time around he branches out further to feature a number of guests from around the world. Wale, Vic Mensa, and Giggs, the crème de la crème of rap in America and the UK respectively all make appearances, as well as Nigeria's Oxlade, South Africa's Cassper Nyovest, and his fellow Ghanaian artists Darkovibes and Kwesi Arthur.
