We Found Something Wrong With These Videos, But Hey… We Love ‘Em Anyways

Posted by Jim Donnett on June 7, 2016 in Editorial · 17 Comments

No shade, to be honest.
The rationale is just so that we can laugh (and of course, ponder too) on some of the points that will be shared in this brisk post about certain music videos released by our superstars.

1. Who You Epp?

Olamide’s sensational and viral hit (as is the fashion of YBNL) fell flat on it’s drab behind, the moment the video dropped. It was everything devoid of creativity. It’s almost like as if Olamide doesn’t care at all to use the good head he has for music, when shooting his music videos. That shxt hurts.

2. Where

Who allowed Tekno to be scripting the plot for his music videos? He has applied this same ‘girl meets guy, girl falls for guy’ concept in three consecutive music video releases. And to think he wasted all that resources going abroad just to kiss some chic? Please let Flavour show you how it’s done jare.

3. Count It All Joy

Joy indeed! With this video, it became clear what exactly Mr 2kay meant by ‘count it all joy’. Did you see all the ‘joys’ in their scantily clad numbers? Were you successful at counting them all or you probably lost count sef? Okay now, we’ll see what side Mr 2kay will be standing on the day of crucifix.

4. Standing Ovation

You see ehn, these streets aren’t for everybody o. Watching Tiwa Savage go ghetto is one sight I still cannot fathom. Of course, she effortlessly relays this aura of a Disney princess, but it is sure not Cinderella who like Wizkid sang, was the girl wey come from ghetto make am.

5. Ready

Ah. Adekunle fell hand bad bad with this video. Like he went from some sharp genius shown on Orente and Pick Up, then came down to settle for terrible less on Ready. It’s as if the low budget concept didn’t correctly spell ‘DOOM’ for him, he needed to read the writing off the wall with tacky fast food and roadside scenes. Dude ain’t even ready yet!

6. The Vow

I’ll be clear, Mrs Busola Dakolo is an uber-friggin’ hot mom who doesn’t even stand competition with some of these badly weaned trolls who like to go under the title of vixens. But! She is NOT a video vixen. Timi should please keep certain aspects of his life business in serious check.

7. Dance

It’s possible that Flavour didn’t realize that Clarence Peters sampled an entire unoriginal concept off another music video, in his own until it dropped and people started to make their thoughts known on the creative theft. If I were in his shoes, I’ll just ask for my money back. No jokes.

8. Ferrari

We can forgive the fact that Ferrari was styled awfully much after Johnny but it would have been sensible to keep the video purely western. If it’s that he was buying her bell bottoms now, we totally agree with the hamlet setting. But Mama Africa was feeling like the best of both worlds. So her video tells us about the confusion encountered on what they exactly set out to do.

9. Slow Slow

Muno happens to be the fast-rising artiste of 2016, having gathered plenty buzz since his signing to Paul Okoye’s Rudeboy Records. He’s a fine singer and looks hella good in his videos. But! Slow Slow reminded us a little too much of bad gal Riri’s Work whose release came in weeks before. Son, unoriginality can sometimes bury one’s career. Remember yours just got started.

10. Oluwa Ni

Aswear, Reeky Tom Tom almost had us totally sold until the bikini clad ladies just had to troll into his video. There’s several other ways the Oluwa Ni context could have been represented other than with skin baring ladies. Banks is kuku a badt shiyd, nobody is disputing that, so yes, I really want to know where he’ll be standing on crucifixion day. Perhaps Oluwa ni!

  1. All correct!

  2. Yea I agree how will you be saying oluwa no ni and you have bikini girls all over the place..its a shame bcus the vid wz passing a differnt message all together I tink our artists should take note of that its too bad!

  3. o don’t agree wit READY…. Dvideo follows d concept perfectly nd itz sharp nd dope

  4. I def had a P with count it all joy.. Clarence was tired I guess. Just picked up his camera and gals.
    Tot he’ll line cars in his compound, show his mansion, family and all.
    All I saw was s#iT…

  5. I disgree wit muno – slow slow,i dont understand the comparison wit rihanna’s work,d choreography is quite difft,d scenes are difft…d make ups are difft as well…the comparison is uncalled for jare…rudeboy was creative wit the video and for adekunle ready,d concept was simple nd lovely

  6. i totally agree except for who you epp and ready!!

  7. Ferrari is the worst

  8. I strongly disagree with the fact that you characterized Busola Dakolo as “not a video vixen.” It presents the impression that she was meant to be a video vixen but she was not. The song was written for and dedicated to her so it is only apt that she was the female character. Also, the word vixen is contextually inappropriate as it presents the notion that she is some sexual subordinate figure as represented in hip-hop and other genres of music where they -vixens-are prevalent. Busola was/is not a video vixen because she is and was not meant to be one.

  9. Mr G1 tha’freshmeat

    Let’s not blame the artiste for d misinterpreted videos, the vid directors shud crucified for that, I don’t if u guys can still remember Tiwa’s #wanted video, twas totally outta point…yeah? D video directors these days hav been too lazy to work not d artistes.

  10. Reading ur pontification on Mr. 2kay, counting it all Joy, I screamed EEEEEEWWOOOOO in Jim’s dialect.Jim is a bad shiyd.

  11. I didn’t see any sense in what you said about Standing Ovation. That video was and still amazing. Tiwa did fantastically well there. You dont have to put any bullshit that comes to your head on paper you know.

  12. oh oh dond gree?

  13. I agree with some of ur submissions……not all.

  14. I totally agree wiv u on standing ovation, Ferrari and Oluwa ni. M disappointed in the Oluwa ni video… I neva expererit. For wu yu epp, m nt surprised coz I dnt see any amazing video Olamide has ever had. I lyk d guy buh his vids, a no no. Flavor has always had nice vids, dunno wah went wrong.

  15. watch video n be happy fr reekado for he has seen #oluwani yhu guys just wanna stroke d hommie bt his #gbedu still #deburstbrain
