C Boy Releases New Single ‘Off Di Light’ Alongside Impeccable Fashion Short
London based Nu-African artist C Boy comes through with new single ‘Off Di Light’, alongside short fashion film celebrating the true essence of black beauty through sound, movement and art. Premiered by Wonderland ‘Off Di Light’ is a smooth, indulgent track giving nods towards contemporary afro-swing but truly in a class of its own. The track and fashion short alike celebrate the beauty of black culture with C Boy opening the film with “Black is beautiful. Black is forever”. It is truly a work of perfection while also paying homage to the worlds universal language and the art cemented into his roots, music. With the short fashion film in collaboration with creative content agency THRDS who specialise in weaving digital content and subcultures together, the imagery Is glossy, hypnotic and polished giving us a look at the scene through auburn-tinted lenses. The spellbinding film is a stunning execution of black beauty and Nu-Africa and an excellent representation of C Boy’s musical trajectory.
