Vendetta

Driemanskap member Redondo has just released his 2004 ghetto horror story, ‘Vendetta’. The El Nino produced track which was never officially released, mysteriously leaked and has since become an underground cult classic.

‘Vendetta’ has now been re-mastered and features a new outro where Redondo explains that, although the track is based on a true story, it is a work of fiction and should be appreciated as art.

Driemanskap #IzuluLelamVideo world premiere on Live Amp

#IzuluLelamVideo on Live Amp

Driemanskap will be unleashing their brand new video for ‘Izulu Lelam’ on SABC1′s hit TV show, Live Amp, on October 26th at 9pm. This will be the first new track from Driemanskap’s forthcoming album, ‘Hlala Nam’.

‘Izulu Lelam’ is a song of hope dedicated to anyone going through tough times in life. The message of the song is that one day everyone will be free from the chains of hardship because heaven is a place that doesn’t discriminate between rich or poor, black or white.

The video was shot and directed by Ari Kruger from Sketchbook Studios. Ari shot Driemanskap’s previous video, ‘Ivamna (Love Potion)’. He has also just finished shooting the latest Jack Parow video and is an accomplished documentary maker.

Vincent Ntunja in Izulu Lelam Video

The Izulu Lelam video also features actor, model, basketball player and tv presenter, Vincent Ntunja, as a wounded warrior. The warrior is a metaphor for life’s struggle and the indomitable spirit inside everyone who keeps going in the face of adversity. Shot in black and white, the video is as epic and moving as the song itself.

Listen to and download Izulu Lelam right here:

Don’t forget – tune into Live Amp on Friday 26th October at 9pm.

Let’s get #IzuluLelamVideo and #Driemanskap trending on Twitter!
