Cassper envisions how we will be when we get back the land.
We didn’t know that it was a trap, so we all fell for it when hip-hop star Cassper Nyovest and actress Pearl Thusi had a go at each other on Twitter. Their twar was based on Cassper supposedly not liking that Pearl was riding horses because according to his tweets horses are for white people. Of course, Pearl hid back at Cassper and a Twar ensued. And it made entertainment headlines. Fast forward two days later, Cassper drops the video for his new single Ksazobalit, and guess who’s riding a horse in the video? You guessed right, Pearl Thusi. The hype around their twar was the publicity the video needed.
However, frankly speaking as beneficial as that stunt was, Ksazobalit, sells itself.
Nyovest took on to social commentary on this video as he tackles the land issue. In the video, Nyovest envisioned a world with a black man as a wealthy farmer. Donned in what most of us have known to be the farmers’ attire Cassper does the vhosho, drives tractors, raps and flexes as he goes about his business on his farm.
An epic visual is the aerial shot of the farm as farm workers in blue overalls dance, its excellent both in the way they dance, but also its insinuation of black people celebrating the ownership of the land.
Idols judge and television personality Somizi makes a cameo as a truck delivery driver in the video.
There’s a scene on the video that is almost a replica of a scene in the 2004 hit movie The Cookout when all the gang from the hood come for a braai and the white neighbours look on. It’s hilarious as the white farmer looks on at Nyovest and as his guests have lunch. The look is envious and yet too proud to ask to join. However, because this is a music video, there’s the happy ending of Nyovest inviting the farmer to join them, and he obliges.
Though brief, Thusi’s cameo as she rode in her a horse made Ksazobalit look dreamy and gave us goosebumps. I had hoped for a kind of embrace between Nyovest and Thusi in the video though.
This is one of Nyovest’s best videos to date in my opinion.
