Dancehall artiste Masicka has teamed up with RD Studios to drop the official music video for one of the most impressionable tracks on his “438” album “King”, and in all honesty deserves to be spoken about based on the standard of visuals brought forward for the deejay’s track.
In the music video, Masicka can be seen in a theatre, with images of great men such as Emperor Haile Selassie I and Bob Marley flashing across a screen with photo messages of black royalty, while dressed in African-designed pants and a crown upon his head.
The music video also had an outdoor scene that saw the deejay along with several females dressed in leopard skin in the representation of their royalty, outside among luscious green trees and grass. This scene added a flare to the video as the song itself is coming from a place of self-sovereignty and Masicka along with the beautiful women he included in the scene perfectly expressed that thought.
Another scene that was added, was one showing him as a juvenile writing lyrics and his grandmother watching over him which is symbolic of her belief in him as a “King” since he was young.
The music video overall is very aesthetic and has many things about it to visually appreciate, especially as someone with African heritage.
