ZULUMECCA’S POSES DIFFICULT QUESTIONS IN THE SULTRY VIDEO FOR “DO YOU GET BITCHES”

KING Cedric Dladla

Between her clinical songwriting structure and her subliminal message props, ZuluMecca prides herself on thought provocation, and her latest visuals for “Do You Get Bitches” is no different.

I have to applaud Johannesburg-based director Fred-From-Yesterday, cinematographer and editor Teeman, and producer Jaden Thiel for compressing a multitude of the aforementioned messages into a linear narrative.

In the video we find Mecca in a Joburg apartment dressed as a priest, complete with a Nefertiti-esque hat, spitting raps that clearly find her between a rock and a hard place. From the sultry vixen in denim hot pants, to the tithe money offered, to the signature wine pour, Mecca posed the question – when temptation is on your doorstep, how do you resist it?

It’s easier said than done, anybody can emulate morality and proclaim sainthood. However, as human nature would have it, envy, ambition, desire and inquisitiveness make it hard for some to endure.

Should Mecca be ostracised for her humanity? Have a peek at “Do You Get Bitches”, and let me know.
