Nix Dlova once again raises the hair goosebumps on her one in a million talent in creative directing black hair craft, this time in a music video for @Sampa the Great and the visuals speak for themselves.
Sampa Tempo, known as SAMPA THE GREAT is a Ugandian born Australia based Urban Afro Funk / Hip Hop musician that visited and performed at various locations. She also seemed to have shot this amazing piece of videography film with crafty creatives of South African team in it.
Without taking the shine away from Sampa, the hair raising subject here is NIKIWE who we have featured and worked with before on Amacreatives.com. She stole the video as 70% of the video features the styling of modern black hair. She not only styled the cast but is also featuring in this awesome visual orgasm of craft. Nix has always had a deep opinion on Black hair and how it deserves to be viewed in a brighter perspective if treated very well.
Half the time, especially within the Black females, there is still a stigma of natural hair in the corporate field and mainstream. Nikiwe’s approach is to turn this perspective around by crafting the most daring and beautiful designs of hair that we have never seen before in our lifetime.
Congratulations on you Nikiwe for such amazing unorthodox talent, you proving to take the issue of Moriri and taking it to a highly appreciated level of craft and putting into the mainstream stage and creating such a refreshing need in the 21st century and millennia’s alike. Check this video out.
