Nox Spends R250 000 On Song With Master KG
Zimbabwean musician Nox Guni has said he spent R250 000 on a new song with Jerusalem hitmaker Master KG.
The South African based musician said the song My Melody is a love song that entails a melodious moment in a relationship. It is set to be released on August 19.
The Afro-house track which was produced by Master KG at his Open Mic Productions Studios will be accompanied by visuals shot at several locations in South Africa by San Pedro.
In an interview with The Chronicle, Nox said he spent the larger chunk of the R250 000 on the video for My Melody.
He said, “I spent R250 000 on this project as I wanted to go all out with it as part of efforts to grow my brand. Most of the money went to the yacht, classic cardiac car and elite dance group we used in the video as well as the extra cast and models.”
When questioned where he got the money at a time when musicians are struggling because of the covid-19 pandemic, Nox said, “We were partly funded by Nakira, a UK-based company which is owned by Mr Dexter Lasswell. They have a line of clubs and restaurants in the UK.”
He also said it was difficult to shoot a video under covid-19 lockdown conditions saying, “It was not easy shooting the video amid the pandemic as we had to follow procedures to make sure we stay within the guidelines set out by the authorities. I’m glad we managed to successfully execute everything to the last detail.”
Nox recent;y released a collaboration with Zimdancehall sensation, Bazooka. Titled Celebrate, the Zimdancehall the song is about someone who will be rejoicing after leaving an appalling relationship.
