Watch Zakwe, Stogie T and Jay Claude’s Video For ‘Roots’

New pristine visuals from Zakwe, Stogie T and Jay Claude.

For his latest music video, Zakwe enlisted the skills of Cape Town director Motion Billy. The video was shot in the Mother City, and shows Zakwe and his collaborators Stogie T and Jay Claude in their dapper drip performing for and among a gang of goons.


There's a serious attention to detail on the video and the minimalist approach gives it a clean and sophisticated look, which is fitting for an equally sophisticated rap song.

"Roots" features a show-stealing verse from Stogie T, solid hook from Jay Claude and a decent verse from Zakwe. The song is taken from Zakwe's 2018 album Cebisa.

Watch the music video for "Roots" below, and download Cebisa here, or stream it underneath.
