Little Simz Pays Homage To South African Activists In Video For ‘Gratitude’

UK rapper Little Simz has just released the video clip to her single Gratitude (ft. The Hics)This is the second video to come from her killer debut album A Curious Tale of Trials + Persons.

Directed by Jeremy Cole, the clip was filmed at the #FeesMustFall protests which took place in October this year, in Cape Town, South Africa. The protests began in the wake of an announcement that a local university was raising its fees by more than 10 per cent in 2016.

The video features scenes of massive street protests, classrooms, scenery and more, interspersed with footage of Simz herself. The clip is not only visually engaging, but it documents and celebrates the spirit of change, with the event reflecting the lyrics in a particularly relevant, thought-provoking manner.
