Mmegi Online :: US rapper Lecrae exhibits Botswana to the world








Scenes of Botswana can be seen in the Grammy nominated Hip hop gospel artist’s video for Tell the World. Leading light, Lecrae Moore’s latest video is taken from a single that makes up part of his sizzling new release, Gravity.

Sir Seretse Khama International Airport can be seen in the video, as well as displays of an Air Botswana aircraft, with special attention given to the traditional blue, black and white stripes of the country’s flag. A quick google search revealed the part was shot on the first Day of the Unashamed Tour late in 2011.

The top selling Hip-hop artist was in the country in November 2011 and performed at the Learning Centre in Gaborone. Female Hip hop gospel artiste, Thato Kealotswe of X-Calibre, who was the opening act for the American during his Botswana tour, said it was exciting to see the revered rapper acknowledging Botswana.

 “I feel God is doing something amazing with the gospel and that is why somebody international is acknowledging us here in Botswana. I actually appreciate what Reach Records (Lecrae’s label) is doing around the world,” Kealotswe told Showbiz.

Another female rapper, Segofalang Nagafela said the gesture is a reminder that she too is part of the movement.

“I think this is really great, it shows that we are a united force all around the world. By showing a glimpse of our country in the video, he makes us remember that we are part of the movement,” said Nagafela.

The video features the soulful Mali Music as well as a few other African countries.

Lecrae co-wrote the song with Torrance Esmond, Kortnet Pollard, Charles Dunlap and Lincoln Cagney Morris.

This exciting collaboration definitely is an impacting video and could potentially get traffic from major video outlets such as BET’s 106 & Park.

 The multiple award-winning Moore is a true hip-hop storyteller, supporting a narrative rap style that tackles issues in a problem-conflict solution-resolution manner.  He has been nominated for several awards, including a Grammy for best rock/rap gospel album.

So far, Moore has released five solo studio albums with Rehab: The Overdose having made a lot of impact worldwide. Lecrae is also a member of the rap group 116 Clique, with which he collaborates frequently.
