Rouge the Rapper shared the trailer for her upcoming short film ‘New Era Sessions’ which is also the title of her upcoming album.
The film which features entertainment heavyweights, Atandwa & Fikile Kani, the inimitable Denise Zimba and a debut appearance from Cassius Davids, is a South African first and 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.
The film stands as a testament to Rouge’s work ethic and creativity as an all-around artist. In an industry prone to overlooking female rappers, Rouge has created a body of work that will set the bar for all future music projects on the continent.
“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,” said Rouge.
Be sure to look out for the debut of the ‘New Era Sessions’ short film on 7th of September via MTV Base.
