Khuli Chana ‘9 Shots’ Music Video by Kyle Lewis



In late October 2013, South African hip hop artist Khuli Chana was shot at by police in Johannesburg in a case of mistaken identity. A year later he released ‘9 Shots’ as a free download. Today he released the official music video for the track directed by Arcade Content‘s Kyle Lewis. The visuals are rich in symbolism, a style that’s becoming a signature for the director who says, “I feel like I’ve found my style. I’m using almost photographic compositions, with small, subtle movements, and very symbolic, very African imagery, that people can think a bit deeper about. It’s a look I want to continue to explore in my hip hop videos.”


Khuli wanted the video to be a reflection on his journey from anger to forgiveness and his fluctuation between hopelessness and hopefulness. The video is apparently not meant to be an attack on the SAPS but rather a story about “Khuli’s journey to healing in the medium that ultimately saved his life: music.”
