Ifani – Shake

This Xhosa rapper is one of our Port Elizabeth homeboys, so we can recognise all the places they shot the video. But the coolest part of Ifani’s steez is that it’s a fresh take on kwaito as we know it – production and rapping-wise.

The Shake video was directed by Jean du Toit and shot by Chris Allen, in the Bay of Bit Skei. It features a bunch of PE performing artists. That’s why, even in the large group shots, there’s not some disinterested group of ladies half-shaking their hips. These cats are going for it! Dangelang! Kelangalang!
