Spoek Mathambo – Mshini Wam (video)

Aug 5 2010

“Part ‘prince of township tech’, part ‘suburban space invader’, Spoek Mathambo is back with the video for his debut album’s first single, “Mshini Wam”.

The song is a story of a young revolutionary who becomes a corrupt fatcat after ‘the big victory’, a common South African story. For the video, Spoek ditched the spacey costumes and lights and went into inner-city Johannesburg, to shoot a grimy ghetto story in a grimey ghetto way, complete with barbershop skankin’, Congolese fishmarket parlaying and a dance competition in the park with the kids!!

PARAPAPAPUM!”

Grab the “Mshini Wam b/w Gwababa (Don’t Be Scared) EP” over here and watch for his debut solo album dropping August 31st!
