10 2017 MUSIC VIDEOS THAT DESERVE AN AWARD
Malo – Tiwa Savage x Wizkid: Almost everything about Malo is royalty. Queen Tiwa and the golden boy, Wizkid made a deluxe visual to their master piece. The Meji Alabi directed video is a beauty to watch.
Ponmile – Reminisce: Reminisce pulled a brilliant surprise with Ponmile, having made it an alternative record instead of his usual indigenous rap music. The visual of the song was even more brilliant with the way it captured the theme of the song. Thanks to input of Odunlade, Lota Chukwu and of course, Clarence.
El Chapo – D’Banj ft. Gucci Mane x Wande Coal: From the picture quality to the luxurious show; the visual perfectly captures the gangster lifestyle that the song describes. D’Banj, Gucci Mane and Wande Coal fit into the boss-like character well. No doubt, the video is of international standard.
Fall – Davido: It is difficult to keep thing simple when you have a bag full of coins. Kudos to Davido, he kept the video simple in terms of flashlights and gadgetry; instead all the beauty of the visual was concentrated on the theatrics. Davido might even get a movie role for it.
Here To Stay – Debie Rise: Big Brother Naija singing darling, Debie Rise couldn’t have had a better video for her inspirational song, Here To Say. There is just so much in the video that one can find inspiring. Great piece!
No Forget – AdekunleGold x Simi: Simi and Adekunle Gold certainly brought the chemistry used in recording the song to the visual. The storyline of the Clarence Peters montage was centered on two lovers who would have to survive all types of challenges thrown at their relationship. No Forget has a beautiful concept and great acting.
Uncle Suru – Jon Ogah ft. AdekunleGold x Simi: Jon Ogah’s Uncle Suru is one song that didn’t take long to gain acceptance. Thanks to a flawless visual, the artiste was able to get his message of hope and perseverance across to many listeners and viewers.
Romeo & Juliet – Johnny Drille: The video is a continuity of a tragic love story that desperately needs a happy ending from Drille’s Wait For Me visual. Set in the early 90s, in this video, the singer continues to cope with life without his true love that died from a brief illness. Retired from the army, he finds himself unavoidably attached to a female Mechanic.
Yolo Yolo – Seyi Shay: A beach setting, playful mood and a sprinkle of effect, was all Meji Alabi needed to make this beautiful video. As usual, Seyi Shay didn’t need to try so hard to set the Yolo Yolo groove. The Caribbean feel of the song was perfectly portrayed when shooting this visual especially with the costume.
Folashade – Praiz: The dark synergy of Praiz and Toni Tones on this video made it an outstanding piece. The strong emotion of the song was evident in the video. This video shows another way to tell a tragic story without giving it all out for the eyes to see. Folashade is no doubt an award-winning video.
