WATCH | Pierre Kwenders Releases Black And White Narrative For His Title Track "Makanda"

Music Videos

In 2017, Pierre Kwenders won over the public with his sophomore album MAKANDA at the End of Space, the Beginning of Time. We had the chance to feature the music video for his catchy tune "Sexus Plexus Nexus" because we couldn't get enough. 

Now we can start the new year right while Pierre Kwenders drops the music video for his album’s title track, "Makanda" featuring Palaceer Lazaro (Shabazz Palaces) and SassyBlack. 

Directed by Patrice Laliberté, the video is set in black and white and follows a narrative. It features Palaceer Lazaro and Luciana Marcos, a MMA fighter.

I was raised by my mother with the help of my aunts and grandmother, the artist explains. My life, without that strong feminine energy, would have very little meaning. This film is simply the story of a young woman working hard, training harder and fighting. I wanted to make a video about the strength of a woman. That is what Makanda is. 

Watch the video above.
