King 98’s publicist and close associate Stephen Tsikirayi told NewsDay Life &Style that the video was based on a song that depicts a love story typical of the Shakespearean era.
“King 98 is Zimbabwean henceforth on the core of his heart is also a desire to contribute to the economic development of his country even in tourism through his craft,” Tsikirayi said.
“King 98 shot the I Bet video in Kariba in the bid to showcase the beauty of Zimbabwe and the manifold tourists’ sites in the country.”
The video flowered by a sense of heroic poetry depicts the 22-year-old rapper as a medieval entertainer bargaining for the definition and true essence of love
“I Bet is a melancholic love story reminiscing the Shakespearean memory of Romeo and Juliet whereby a man bewitched by cupid’s arrows goes all in for a girl who fails to reciprocate the same love,” he said.
