Last weekend he was in Cape town South Africa shooting a music video, with the crew that that has filmed for Rick Ross and P-Square in Miami and cape town.

“South Africa, it’s been fun but now I’m home in my beloved Uganda. This will definitely not be my last time in SA. I’ll be back very soon,” the singer signed to Swangz Avenue posted on his Facebook page.

According to his manager, Julius Kyazze, this could be one of most expensive local music videos. “About $39,000 (about Shs100m) has been spent on what will become Ug’s most expensive music video. Navio held this record with his past video, Criminal Swag but that record has been smashed,” he said.

Zee travelled with his producer Benon, his father and his manager. “Total cost break down is $20,000 (about Shs51m) paid to the film crew, $4,000 (about Shs10m) on accommodation, $5,000 (about Shs12m) on travels, $3,000 (about Shs7m) on styling and $2,000 (about Shs5m) on professional dancers . Another $5,000 (about Shs12m) was spent on location and props,” he added.

“The boy’s dad is a very loaded businessman who believes in his son’s abilities.”We are blessed to work with a parent who knows and appreciates the business,” says Young Zee’s manager.
