KWINI KUZA has released their brand new single, SPEED OF LIGHT, alongside its music video. The band, consisting of teenage prodigies aged 13 and 14 from Durban and Stanger, wrote the song together with their management, and it was produced by internationally acclaimed UK producer Marc JB. Marc JB has worked with the likes of Cyndi Lauper, Sergio Mendes and has done remixes for Rihanna and Britney Spears. He has over 70 #1 Billboard Dance hits under his belt.
SPEED OF LIGHT is a song about meeting someone for the first time and instantly falling for them. It plays with the idea of love at first sight; something people experience whether they are 14 or 40. It is a universal message and chosen by the band members as new single because it showcases their musical abilities both instrumentally and vocally.
The video was shot by Hart Media in Durban and directed by Pelisha Somiah with assistant director Dayakar Padayachee. The video was shot over the course of two days at a warehouse and at Moyo On The Pier at uShaka Marine World, Durban. The KWINI KUZA team wanted to create a glamorous video which reflects adult quality regardless of the young age of the musicians.
The video, which features a live performance element alongside a storyline, reinforces the message of the song of falling in love at the speed of light with its love story narrative.
“We are very excited about our new video. It is a feel good music video; by the time people finish watching it, we want people to feel positive and happy. We also want to show the world that we are the real deal, despite being so young - young musicians should not be underestimated and anything is possible. The video has glamour, fun, style and we believe it is one of a kind in South Africa.”
