Rouge’s New Era Sessions Film Nominated for a SAFTA Award

Rapper Rouge, Short film “New Era Sessions” was nominated in the Best Micro Budget Film Category: TV Non-Fiction at the 12th Annual South African Film & Television Awards (SAFTAs) – A first for any rapper in South Africa. Following the release of her much-anticipated debut Album “New Era Sessions” Rouge surprised fans with the release of a short film of the same name.

The film which features entertainment  heavyweights, Atandwa & Fikile Kani, the inimitable Denise Zimba and a debut appearance from Cassius Davids, depicts the story of a young woman on her journey of self-discovery. The production is an immersion into her experiences as she deals with the highs and lows of falling in love, the delight of true friendship and the bitterness of betrayal.

I wanted to give listeners and viewers something different, something memorable and also perhaps, an insight into what motivates me, what drives my narrative and my music. I really hope my fans enjoy it and it connects them to my message and through that, me to them.  An artist is defined by her fans, and I am grateful for – and blessed by – their love and support,” said Rouge.
