Kid Tini has been making waves with the hard-hitting music video for his hit track Cinga. The video is quite graphic and upsetting and is part of the musician's plan to address social problems like depression, suicide, and teenage pregnancy.
Kid Tini's latest music video is very evocative and touching with a strong message about suicide, teen pregnancy, depression and abortion.
While the video might be upsetting to sensitive viewers, Kid Tini says it's all part of his plan to address the issues that really haunt society.
The video was dropped on YouTube on the 10th and already had more than 99 000 views.
Kid Tini says he always felt that his music should have a message, and this is one bold message he is trying to convey.
I feel like we often just sweep things like this under the carpet and that is wrong when you look at all the things teenagers need to go through. If we treat it with such secrecy then it will never stop being taboo. It's important to talk about it.
I have always felt like my music needs to have a message. This was about what I have gone through at a point in my life, which is teenage pregnancy.
The rapper said he and the girl he got pregnant were able to cope with the pregnancy by communicating with each other, and he involved their families, who he says was supportive.
Kid Tini is addressing issues that are difficult to talk about and that are often avoided, especially by older generations.
These topics are hard to speak about but I am trying to break the boundaries and take away the stigmas attached to them.
We salute your efforts, young man. South Africans need to talk about the real issues that society faces.
The video can be seen on YouTube.
