“Our music video is different”
A music video for the track, Ushukela, is out and Team Solplaatjie duo, Msesho Kau and TJ Mr Vans are visibly excited. According to them, ushukela (sugar) means money and that it is worth being sweat for.
They feature a foursome, AmaWhyNot, in the song. “The music video is different. Many of amapiano videos are about partying, drinking alcohol and dancing at the same location,” says Msesho. TJ adds: “The video shows that we were not lazy.”
It is convincing why TJ invited AmaWhyNot to be part of the song. They are revered dancers and worked with a number of big names in the local music industry including DJ Tira, Lady Zamar, Mafikizolo and even shared a stage with Chris Brown and Tamia. They embody versatility in the entertainment art. They dance, sing and even model too.
