We all love our music coming to life in a video. As fans we want the visuals to match a songs story line or in some cases twist the plot. Over the years we have watched music videos go through an evolution. As a whole African music videos are at par with international standards. Zimbabwe through all the challenges is making a breakthrough in the visual industry.
Though we love our stars in front of our screens, we want to honour those behind the scenes. These 5 music video directors have been creating noteworthy magic.
