Purity Zinhle Mkhize, vocalist for punk bands Fruits and Veggies and The Pranks, has reinvented herself and is now a solo artist called Pure and she’s just released an awe-inspiring video for her song No Secrets.
The video is a no fuss, no frills ode to natural beauty and body positivity with all of its subjects wearing no make up, no clothes (except for the burnt t-shirt Purity wears in certain shots) and bearing no secrets.
In a voiceover in the beginning of the video, Purity speaks about her new outlook on life after becoming a solo artist and mother: “Now, all at once, I’m starting to make peace with self, and it’s been good,” she says.
“This video embodies everything I believe in and stand for as a woman, as an artist and as an ever-growing entity,” says Purity in a statement. “It’s a celebration of what true beauty is.”
Kyle Lewis, the SAMA-winning music video director, who is up for a Metro FM Award this weekend for his music video for Jump, Anatii’s collaboration with Cassper Nyovest and Nasty C, says “I wanted to create a raw, honest piece that promotes positive body image.
“No make up. No wardrobe. Just a beautiful tapestry of human bodies, of people who share their truths and their vulnerable side, who defy the norms and break the mold. No secrets. No fear.”
