CONNIE Chiume, John Kani, Nandi Madida, Nyaniso Dzedze and Warren Masemola are flying our flag high.

The actors will be featured in Beyonce’s coming music video from her visual album, Black is King.

The album trailer was released this weekend.

Sharing the video on Instagram, Beyonce said the album was originally a companion piece to The Lion King: The Gift, released last year to celebrate black ancestry.


“The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey,” she wrote.

“We’re all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change.

“I believe when black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our real history of generational wealth and richness of soul not told in our history books.

“With this album, I wanted to present elements of black history and African tradition with a modern twist and a universal message and what it means to find self-identity and build a legacy.”

The Mzansi actors said they weren’t allowed to speak about the album. Mzansi Magic publicist Lucky Mangela said Connie could only comment once it was released, while Nyaniso’s management said he has signed a non-disclosure agreement.
