pH Raw X says about the track –“KUXOTAWENA is my current single taken from my album, SENSE EXPERIENCE AND EKEYOTO. This is a very special song to me, from inception I knew that I needed a powerhouse, vocal feature on it. Berita was the perfect artist to complete the song. Her feminine touch brought both colour as well as an honest, interpretation of emotion from a female’s perspective”.
The video which emphasizes the inspiration of the song, which pH describes as – “ that moment when you meet someone new and are reluctant to fully let them into your world, and when you eventually do let them in, come to the realization that they have been the one missing part of your world- KUXOTAWENA”.
Draped in local threads by some of South Africa’s top local designers, amongst others; Refiloe Mocwa, Floyd Avenue and Afrikan Swiss, the visuals are a beautifully weaved cinematic experience between fashion and emotion.
Berita’s stellar solo performance in front of a mirror, may be interpreted as a reflection of the songstress’ internal conflict about her mixed emotions towards her love interest, who is played by pH Raw X. The use of the mirror is a powerful reflection of the female mind and the motions that she experiences in the pursuit and discovery of love.
Says Berita: “I’m truly honoured to have worked with PH, I connected with the song from the first time I heard it. I am also happy with the way the visuals turned out – they tell the story in a beautiful abstract way”.
This being Berita’s first hip hop feature, it’s not surprising that it would be pH Raw X who would bring her into unexplored and yet familiar territory.
