Bakhothe Mzee releases brand new music video titled ‘Can’t Get’

Bakhothe Mzee

Hailing from Bekkersdal, upcoming musician Bakhothe Mzee has released his brand-new music video titled ‘Can’t Get’ from his album Mountain View Dreams. The young artist defines his style as old-school hip-hop with a touch of Kwaito.

The multi-talented artist writes and produces his own music. He is a firm believer in small beginnings because of where he comes from and he has his sights set on becoming a household name in the South African hip-hop scene.

The ‘Can’t Get’ music video was shot and directed by BStillMotionMedia in Bakhothe Mzee’s hometown as he felt that Bekkersdal and the locals there reflect who he is and where he comes from. One will notice a popular Trompies sample in this single which offers a nostalgic feeling for old school Kwaito fans. You can follow Bakhothe Mzee on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for more updates.
