No, itâ€™s not a brand-new single- because we are yet to finish digesting the â€˜W Experienceâ€™ (his latest album released last December). Rather, itâ€™s a clean, on-point video thatâ€™s going to keep the streets screaming his name for the next God-knows-how long.
Smooth talking singer, Banky W, a k a Mr Capable, is first to colour the tubes from the music stable this 2010. On the fifth day of this year (Tuesday), Banky uploaded the official â€˜Lagos Partyâ€™ video on the world wide web. This represents the second video to be released off his second Nigerian album- the W Experience, having released his first single video â€˜Strong Tingâ€™ in the last quarter of last year.
The song â€˜Lagos Partyâ€™ was produced by Dokta Frabz and the video directed by Kemi Adetiba for Dragon Fly Productions. Shot in Lagos, the star-studded video features El Dee Da Don, Omawunmi, Peter and Paul Okoye (P-Square), 2-shotz, Waje, M.I, DJ Zeez, BBN Winner Ebuka and a host of others.
In auto party mood, the dressed to kill cast partied with the best of wines, popping champagne in a huge cream house labelled â€˜The EME mansionâ€™ (EME meaning, Empire Music Emirates- Bankyâ€™s label). Banky arrived with some friends in a posh auto with number plate â€˜Wâ€™ and strolled into the EME mansion where the party was already in motion. Chief bartender was big brother El Dee while 2-Shotz lounged in the VIP.
Lots of beautiful damsels grooved to the beat, while the guys looked effortlessly great without patronising the blings. Good actors, clean pictures with flicks changing every two second or less, poker playing, straight-bottle drinking, restroom flings, chatting and dancing, everyone carried on like it was nobodyâ€™s birthday. Mr W and Kemi Adetiba kept this video clean yet brilliant in all ramifications showing a peaceful high-class Lagos party.
