To celebrate the 1-year anniversary of her soulful album ‘Songs in the Key of Love’, multi-award-winning Afro-soul sensation Berita on Thursday (11 Feb) premiered the music video for ‘Ndikhawulele’, the opening track of the album.
Meaning ‘meet me in the middle’, Ndikhawulele is an intricate look into the emotive relationship between two people who have committed to love.
An early Valentine’ gift for her horde of fans, this time Berita tells a love tale of melancholy in a relationship between two people who love each other but yet something is amiss.
In the music video, this story is told metaphorically through Berita’s performance, lighting and the artistic use of hands to suggest the tension between Berita and her love interest.
Clearly, her fans seem to be enjoying the gift from the “Apple of My Eye” maker.
Commenting on the video, Xolela Sibam wrote: “Besides me who else also thinks that Berita is so under-rated. ?? A Goddess that’s what she is…”
Mbalenhle Dube said: “I think I’m gonna leave my family and quit school so that I can put my focus on this song…can’t wait for the premier!!!”
Another viewer, Blinky M, commented: “Well done Berita, your music is timeless, your attention to detail in your work is exceptional, would love to see you do something with Zonke… ♥️”
Fellow singer Novuyo Seagirl said the video “got me all emotional, beautiful song💞”
