Yes, brand new videos are filtering into the tubes. Since P-Squareâ€™s â€˜Dangerâ€™ premiered exclusively on Mtv last week, Olubankole Wellington aka Banky W has now dropped the first video off his coming album; The W Experience, and singer Naeto Câ€™s followed suit.
In this outgoing week, Storm Recordsâ€™ Naeto C dropped the club-banging video, â€˜Ako mi ti po juâ€™ replete with the characteristic, clothing, ambience and 21st century scenes, while R N B pop dude Banky W opted for an 80s setting in interpreting his â€˜Strong Tingâ€™ lyrics.
Two tight videos by all standards, both videos shot in South Africa and serving as first singles off coming albums, the two videos portray two different worlds and times: the contemporary – defended by Naeto Câ€™s â€˜Ako mi ti po juâ€™, and the oldies adequately painted in Bankyâ€™s â€˜Strong Thingâ€™.
With song produced by Dr Frabz, the â€˜Ako mi ti po juâ€™ video was directed by by Josh & Bobby. The video premiered on MTv on Tuesday, September 8. The Mastersâ€™ student at the University of Dundee, rapper, Naeto C is currently working on his yet-to-be-titled sophomore album since dropping his debut, â€˜Ãou know my Pâ€™- the album which housed the rave of all time hit; Kini Big Deal.
While Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) representative in Nigeria, Banky W maximised light to achieve good cinematography in his movie-like 80s video; the song was originally produced by Cobhams.
