X Plastaz new video in memory of Faza Nelly R.I.P.

By  | 

In 2002, X Plastaz recorded the track ‘Nini dhambi kwa mwenye dhiki’ to a beat supplied by dj 360 in Amsterdam. The video was shot in September 2004 on the active volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai (the Mountain of God to the Maasai people) and in the slums of Arusha. The editing had just been completed earlier this month, 2 days before Nelly was stabbed. In the same week he died, the volcano had its first major eruption in years.

This video is among the last works that Faza Nelly completed on this earth, and it is being distributed in his memory.

The video was planned to be released along with a new single containing a double a-side: the new track ‘Hiyo’ and ‘Nini dhambi kwa mwenye dhiki’. Since Tanzania’s Channel 10 did a report about Nelly’s funeral, they premiered the video on Tanzanian television on the 8th of April. The video is on its way to other stations including MTV Africa (enquire here if you work for a tv station and want to broadcast), and the Hiyo! single is being pressed.
The track ‘Nini dhambi kwa mwenye dhiki’ is about the poor and have-nots of society (click here for full lyric). Nelly wrote the song from his own experiences and from talking to other people in the streets. This is one of X Plastaz songs that shows had exceptional talent that Nelly had for painting a vivid picture with his lyrics.

The video shows Nelly in three settings: Unga Limited, a poor and dangerous slum in Arusha; Eluwai, the Maasai village of X Plastaz member Yamat; and the top of the Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano. The latter (also the setting of the Tomb Raider 2 movie) is located in a remote and hard to reach part of Tanzania, and X Plastaz (Gsan, Yamat, Nelly and Juma4) had to get a Landrover, drive out there and climb at night (60% steep rock path) to reach the summit at sunrise, to film between the smoking hornitos which spit lava regularly. Although the volcano was slumbering when the video was recorded, it spit out a large lava flow in the same week Nelly’s died, and thousands of people in the area had to be evacuated.
