Posted: Nov 28 2017
Joburg’s Siya Ngcobo aka musician and performance artist Umlilo dropped a brand-new music video this week for ‘DL Boi’.
Directed by Jono Kay, choreographed by Llewellyn Lulubelle Mnguni and Henk Opperman, and featuring Stash Crew’s Whyt Lyon, ‘DL Boi’, sees the duo perform in Melville’s Glory nightclub.
“DL Boi refers to ‘down low brother’,” says Umilo. “When a closeted gay man frequents queer spaces in order to hook up with fellow queers.”
The video follows Whyt Lyon who attends a performance by Umilo, before the two action out a beautiful series of choreographed movements in both the neo-lit nightclub and against a stark, white backdrop.
