South African rapper Nasty C teams up with Meji Alabi on this London-set video for Jungle, pitching him in a world that mixes pop video slickness and something far grittier. 

Combining performance with more dreamlike moments, Alabi creates a hard-hitting, all-consuming sensory experience to match the fierce message in Nasty's song Jungle.     

MEJI ALABI:

"I’ve been following Nasty C for a couple years now so when the chance popped up to work with him for his first shoot abroad in London I snatched it up. 

"The track itself feels visceral yet really amps you up so we wanted to channel a darker and disjointed vibe..but one that you could still rock to and Nasty jumped right in and killed his performances!"
