Here are 4 things you need to know about Nadia Nakai’s new music video:
1. The music video features high-fashion pieces from over 20 South African designers, including the likes of Black Coffee, Chulaap, David Tlale, Kiara Gounder, Kisua, Kumkani, and Thebe Magugu.
2. Rory O’Grady shot the ad, which was edited by William Kalmer at Post Modern and finished at BlackGinger. Gabrielle de Gersigny and Candice Lee Waldman oversaw the wardrobe, while Chris Bass was the production designer.
3. Nakai and Casino both recently shared the stage with Chance the Rapper at the #CastleLiteUnlocks concert. Nakai was nominated for Best Music Video at this month’s South African Music Awards (SAMAs), while Casino won Best Remix at last year’s South African Hip Hop Awards for Whole Thing with Riky Rick.
4. Egg Films’ Lebogang Rasethaba directed the Money/Calling MV. Lebo grew up in South Africa, spent five years in China completing his master’s in film studies, and returned to his mother continent with a remarkable skill set and a handy fluency in Mandarin.
Since then, Lebo has made his mark on the advertising world, winning Creative Circle Ad of the Year, working with a spread of international brands, and featuring regularly on sites like Highsnobiety, i-D, Nowness and Vice.
