Ahead of the release of her debut album, New Era Sessions, set to drop in early September, Rouge the Rapper shared the trailer for her upcoming short film of the same name. The film which features Atandwa & Fikile Kani, Denise Zimba and a debut appearance from Cassius Davids, will premiere on MTV Base on the 7th of September.
The trailer splices together scenes from the film which captures the story of a young woman on her journey of self-discovery. The production is an immersion into her experiences as she deals with the highs and lows of falling in love, the delight of true friendship and the bitterness of betrayal.
I wanted to give listeners and viewers something different, something memorable… and also perhaps, an insight into what motivates me, what drives my narrative and my music. I really hope my fans enjoy it and it connects them to my message and through that, me to them. An artist is defined by her fans, and I am grateful for – and blessed by – their love and support
