Great sounds and jaw-dropping videos have been rife in the Nigerian music industry lately. The kind of music videos that make you proud to be Nigerian, something we have in common with the artistes and producers who make them. Here are two of our favourite videos for the week:
Omawumi – Malowa feat. DJ Spinall & Slimcase
Omawumi’s Malowa is our favourite video for the week.
Not long ago OmaWonder, as she is often called, lately gave us Me Ke“, the banging hot song with the Flyboy chief, Kizz Daniel. Now we have another one featuring popular celebrity DJ, DJ Spinall, and the Shaku Shaku king, Slimcase.
Omawumi’s “Malowa” is born out of her love for the fans, and for the Streets. In the video, she decides to leverage on the Shaku Shaku rave by featuring Slimcase with his comic input which makes the song all the more fun.
The very colourful video features a plethora of street dance steps and lingua franca.
Omawumi has once again proven to be one of the most versatile musical acts in Nigeria.
Shekhinah – Suited featuring Mr Eazi
Suited is Shekhinah’s first single off her now Platinum-certified debut album, titled “RoseGold”.
Together with Mr Eazi, they do a worthwhile, low tempo remix of her already very successful 2017 hit song. The single has been certified Diamond in South Africa.
The song was produced by Nigerian producer “SynX” and the visuals are nothing short of mesmerizing. It was shot in Durban, South Africa on a lavishly decorated luxury yacht. Accompanied by mesmerizing visuals, Shekhinah and Mr Eazi team up to give you a glimpse into their world.
If you are yet to see “Best Part” by Praiz, “Sweet Boy” by Falz, Major Lazer’s “All My Life” featuring Burna Boy, or Brymo’s ‘Ba nuso’ then you should see them. They are some of the best-done music videos released in the last week.
