Members of Johannesburg’s influential culture collective Boyzn Bucks,  Consisting of rappers, producers, DJs, designers, sneaker-heads and creative pioneers, the 9-man crew is at the forefront of the current renaissance in South African street culture. Together, they say their aim is to export their home-grown street culture abroad as well as inspire the younger generation of South Africans in the realms of style, art and music. Back in November Boyzn Bucks dropped their first single as a group. “Mswenkofontein,” which featured production by seasoned Cape Town-based beatmaker Sibot, amassed a staggering 100k downloads in its first weekend. Few days ago the collective shared a fun, energetic video to go along with what has become Joburg’s “Umswenko” anthem. Featuring Okmalumkoolkat, Stilo Magolide and U_Sanele, along with other crew members and a mass of young stylish associates and friends, the music video is a celebratory nod to South Africa’s s’manje-manje street style and a vibrant expression of Boyzn Buck’s strong collective spirit. According to a description that comes with the clip, “This is not a music video. This is a time capsule of what’s going on in the streets of South Africa, specifically in the city of Johannesburg.” Watch the new “Mswenkofontein” video directed by Okmalumkoolkat (aka Simiso Zwane) himself and shot by Lebogang Rasethaba, Mr. Channel Thirty and Sanele Mkhize.
