Watch: Okenyo’s “Just A Story”


Australian actress Zindzi Okenyo’s conversion to a Neo-Soul dame with the help of her band members; Andrew Bruce (Keys / Synth / BV) and Moses MacRae (Drums / Beats production) is done through expressive ways via her lyrics and visuals. Her first track Just A Story, from her fourth EP Mirage does just that. It tells a sultry story, literally walking you through one couple’s daily mishaps. Throughout the video, there is a third perspective on the mundane and marginalized definition of relationships that in some cases are forced. It may sound as a tragic Shakespeare script, but Okenyo theatrical background deters the emotion of the video by acting as the mystical medium that only the viewers can see.
