Congratulations to Priddy Ugly and Bontle Modiselle on the announcement of their pregnancy 10 years into their relationship!
The two came out as the music duo Rick Jade earlier this year. After the successful release of two singles, “Sumtin’ New” and “Service,” the two are gearing up for the release of their album, D.N.A. (Da New Africa). The album will be available on digital platforms on August 23, 2019.
Their latest drop is the music video for “Bonita,” a song made in ode to their unborn child and Bontle.
“10 years of our love has given life to our first love. A culmination of who we are and what we have become. We’ve done many great things, together and individually, but none as incredible as this. There’s no way to describe how this feels, but I feel everything all at once, intensely so. For the first time, I feel superhuman. But above all, I’m abundantly blessed to be chosen to mother a child with the man I truly love, coming into a family who can’t wait to meet them.” – Bontle Modiselle
“We celebrate our 10 year union by presenting to you – Rick Jade, an extension of Priddy Ugly & Bontle Modiselle. Our narrative is one of African excellence, the freedom of expression in art, culture & spirituality. We are advocates for love that is genuine & seamlessly natural in its expression – the making of the music was equally as organic. Our music is what a decade of love, friendship & chemistry sounds like. Our sound is both futuristic & nostalgic.
From our upcoming project titled D.N.A (Da New Africa) we present to you, ‘Bonita’ which translated is Portuguese for ‘beautiful’. This song is a beautiful dedication to our unborn child & her mother. The future of Africa lies in the bond, the growth & unity of the African family, as well as our support & faith in it. It takes a community to raise a child. We are grateful & thankful to have been blessed with the opportunity to raise the next generation of Africa.” – Priddy Ugly
