uMqakezeleni means “clap for him/her” in Ndebele.The song speaks to giving credit where credit is due and clapping for those who have earned the applause.
The cinematography takes viewers on an intimate journey through the life of a warrior from the Zoria tribe, a group of people who wear all black and can be identified by their tall wooden staffs.
