Award winning kwaito group MMP Family’s music video Money In The Bank is a cry out for local banks to start working with the creative trio.
The trio, now managed by Zen Promotions, decided to use the strategy to lure banks into a partnership because the song can be relevant to any bank ad campaign.
The new music video was launched recently at New Capitol Cinemas at Masa Square and it features talented rapper Dramaboi.
The video was shot at Tsabong Camel Park and it pushes the message that money should be saved at the bank rather than being stashed away in underground saves. While some people get tempted to take their money out of the bank and hide it in their home, the video suggests otherwise.
In the video a group of bandits played by the trio of MMP Family find an undisclosed location in the desert where they dig out money from a ruined shack and run away with the loot. The gentlemen are shown later in the city spending money after saving it at the bank. They are seen flashing their credit cards in expensive restaurants.
The moral of the story is that the safest place to save money is at the bank because it is protected even in the event of robbery.
The video from their upcoming album presents a different sound from the talented trio and Dramaboi makes it a total perfection.
Dramaboi always has the interesting Setswana rhymes and his line “O seka mpitsa fan gare di cousin,” is simply brilliant and brings out the naughty side of the makeishane rapper. The song is more of urban hip hop sound than their normal kwaito. Mzico and Ples’s verse add the Kwaito element and doesn’t take away their “manyora a style” trademark.
Mod who has always loved hip-hop brings in an ingredient usually done by American hip-hop artists like Future. The quality of the video is of high standards and deserves airplay on Trace Africa and Channel O.
