After much anticipation, the visuals for Chanda Mbao’s music video ‘Wave’ have finally arrived. After an unprecedented two-day exclusive premiere on Trace Africa, the video has received Africa-wide praise and many viewers who missed it have been anxious for the online release.
Shot in Mukambi Safari Lodge in the Kafue National Park, Chanda Mbao’s scenic visuals were directed by DJ Lo who is fast becoming one of the most important names in Zambian visual production. Featuring beautiful natural landscapes and wildlife, the visuals display a truly Zambian setting which represents a well-executed and unique juxtaposition given the modern Hip-Hop style of the song. The song features fast-rising R&B vocalist Scott, previous winner of the Airtel Trace Africa Music Stars competition for Zambia and a frequent collaborator of Chanda Mbao’s. The two originally released the song in 2017 as a thank you to fans after winning a CBC TV award for best Hip-Hop music video for their prior collaboration, Selfish. Do you think they will bag another one?
It is great to see young Zambians producing content of the highest quality no matter what genre they work in and we only hope we see more such great initiatives from our local talents.
