New video features city

POPULAR house DJ Heavy-K started shooting his second music video yesterday and is hoping to showcase Port Elizabeth and all it has to offer. The track, Beautiful War, features kwaito artist Professor.

"I wanted to shoot Wena's music video here in PE but at the time I was still not right financially. Now that I can afford a lot of things, I decided to do this at home. People have to see the beautiful side of PE. I want my fans to know where I come from and the location where I grew up," he said.

The video, which was shot at Kings Beach, Studio Lounge in Zwide, Summerstrand and Algoa Park, will be out in about three weeks.

"This song shows how unique women are. It also shows that women should not be abused. It does not matter if a girl hits you, you don't have to hit her back. It teaches people to respect women and I hope it is one of the songs that will be mostly played in Women's Month next year."

Heavy-K, 21, whose real name is Mkhululi Siqula, launched his debut album Drumboss 2013, in May and his music has been played at parties around the country.

The music video is being shot by Nicky Campos, who has worked with HHP, Professor and Zonke. "This is a four-minute video which will take us about two days to shoot. The weather is on our side and hopefully Heavy-K's fans will enjoy the video," he said.

"The last time I was here, I was shooting Zonke's music video Ekaya."

A scene with Heavy-K's mentor, DJ Oskido, will be shot in Johannesburg as he could not make it to Port Elizabeth.
