The music video was launched last week in Maboneng, Johannesburg. He paid tribute to his crew, Tick Tack Muzick, Team Faith and TearDream Fam for putting together an awesome event.

“The music video for imali ye grant will be available on several channels such as Channel O, Mtv Base, Trace Urban and Trace Africa and I am finally happy that I have put my kasi, New Lobengula on the map after a long run in the game for almost 8 years, “he said.
Born Bret Ngwenya, Rammz has collaborated with a number of artists among them the late Cal-vin on the hit, Bhekela Phansi, which they recorded at the Volte Face Records. The song brought him into the limelight gaining recognition in the industry.
In 2017 June Bret Rammz dropped his anticipated single “Get the Cheese” in which he featured United States hip hop artist Rahc Wilson. The track, produced by kronik, got 2000 on its first day of its release on data file host, which surprised many.
“Being new to the industry at the time and collaborating with artists outside Africa left many in awe and also gave me further recognition among my peers. The song was well received by fans and it has done well also online. The video for the track, which was directed by Graphic Gang was released in 2018 and shot in Detroit, America and Hillbrow, Johannesburg,” said Ngwenya.
Ngwenya added that the music video was shot in February but he felt it was not the right time to launch the video for his number one single “imali ye grant” due to Covid 19 lockdown restrictions. Bulawayo born Rammz has shared the stage with acts such as SA’s top hip hop acts, Emtee, Kid X and Fifi Cooper.
