Ghanaian elite rapper and musician M.anifest recently released the audio and visuals to his new single titled “Be My Woman”, featuring South African house group Mi Casa and produced by Mike Millz. Now he’s back with another release, but this time it’s a new version of the previously released visuals – a short film.
In this version, the video was stripped of M.anifest‘s and Mi Casa‘s performance scenes from the music video, resulting in a short film that traces the lead model’s journey from waking up in the morning to meeting up with M.anifest, who drives away with her in a vintage car.
This unique approach gives the video a whole different feel. The video was directed by Makere Thekiso and shot in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Watch the video, and download or stream “Be My Woman” on iTunes/Apple Music below.
