Cynthia Mare releases smash video
CYNTHIA Mare would have been the perfect ambassador for a tissue paper company.
Her songs have always elicited tears; tugging at the heartstrings with stories of loss and emotive pieces that make angels fall from the sky and saints weep.
But the weeping angel has finally found her smile and can now be the face of a toothpaste advertisement – her smile is overwhelming.
And nothing better than the fresh release of her latest music video for the song Ngoro, whose trailer was dropped yesterday.
The song, a feel good track with strong hints of mbaqanga influences, has a video that features fast rising choreographer and dance wizard John Cole, albeit in an element we have never seen him in — as a rural herd-boy no less!
“It’s a fun song exploring fun themes,” explains Mare. The video having J Cole jumping up and down and acting silly was part of the experience. He’s a guy who knows how to have fun and it was just a great event and outing for us and nothing too serious.”
Said Cole: “The experience was cool and quirky. We said ‘let’s go out there and make mistakes and have fun.”
e video tells a story of a rural herd-boy who decides to try his luck asking out a metropolitan girl and wanting to marry her. He then promises to take her on a ride on his ngoro (scotch-cart) — zimrobbie.
