domestic worker

The Kiffness has turned his domestic worker into a star after she danced along to a new song he was working on, now he has the best gift for her.


Cape Town, South Africa – The Kiffness, also known as David Scott, has made some pretty cool music in the past but the latest song has to be the best one yet. The song is dedicated to Nomi, David’s domestic worker.

While working on the song, Nomi was in the lounge vacuuming. David heard the vacuum stop, as he peaked around the corner, he saw her dancing along. He shared a video of her dancing on Twitter, and a follower suggested that Nomi do a music video for the song.

David was taken by the idea and started planning for the music video. The idea was to drive Nomi home and stop along the way to film her doing cool things. They drove from Cape Town to Addo to fetch Nomi’s ailing mother.

David then put the music video together along with Nomi’s story and has said all proceeds earned through streaming avenues would be paid over to Nomi. He then set up a crowdfund to help Nomi get her mother settled in Cape Town. The crowdfund was fully funded within days.

“Funds will be used to help alleviate some of the financial strains that Nomi has endured. She’s had a son wrongfully put in prison which came with high legal fees. We recently drove from Cape Town to Addo to pick up her mother who is ill, so she is looking after her too. She also has an unemployed husband that she looks after.

Life is tough for her, so I want to be able to give something back to her to make life a little easier. For now, the things she needs most is a nice gas heater to keep her place warm, as well as a wheelchair for her mother.

Breakdown of costs:

Wheelchair R4000
Gas heater R2500
Transport for mother to and from hospital R3000
Basic needs i.e. food, electricity R1500″

David said Nomi is supporting her entire family on a domestic worker’s salary. She is under enormous amounts of stress to keep everyone alive and healthy, so it would just alleviate some of the pressures that come from her day to day struggles. She looks after her mother, her two sons and her unemployed husband, who is a skilled tiler and painter but is struggling to find regular work.
