In the video Ghita and her friends move from urban locations to the country’s beautifully desolate wilderness.

I believe in my dreams and my ambitions, and I want to inspire people to do the same. I also wanted to address female empowerment. In Morocco, more and more women are fighting for their right to be heard. They’re standing up for emancipation, for equality between genres, and to bring down this patriarchal society.We had a lot of fun making the video. I got to meet an amazing group of women and it was hilarious from start-to-finish, as if we’d known each other forever. I hope we can be reunited soon.”Ghita is inspired by North African rhythms and the vibrant world of Afrobeats as well as elements of R&B, rap and hip-hop. She sings in English, French (her mother tongue) and Arabic.For her tracks so far, Ghita has already hit 5 million streams, with fan favourite HateULoveU hitting Spotify’s Global Viral Top 50.last_img read more

Stokes eyes Aussie redemption

first_imgCricket Ben Stokes has described England’s first Cricket World Cup semifinal for 27 years as a “massive occasion for the nation” and fired the old Ashes rivalry by saying there is nothing better than the feeling of beating Australia. Stokes admitted that today’s game at Edgbaston was the biggest of his career and the semifinal against Australia a shot at “redemption” for a team blown away by Mitchell Starc at Lord’s nearly two weeks ago. “Yes, to date. Definitely,” said Stokes when asked if this was the most important match of his life. “It’s a massive occasion for us as players and as a nation. The support has been brilliant. Playing against Australia is a big occasion – in any sport. The rivalry goes way back and we have the Ashes this summer, too. “Beating them is that touch better than any other team. Losing to them at Lord’s was massively disappointing, so I think there will be a bit of redemption for that, knowing we have the chance to beat them and get to that final.” Stokes could have been talking about himself when he used the word “redemption”, given his recent history. He missed the last Ashes tour because of his fight in Bristol – he was found not guilty of affray – and England never recovered from the loss of such a key player as they went down 4-0. Tomorrow’s game offers him a chance to balance his own books. – stuff.co.nzlast_img read more
