[Video] Angelique Kidjo – Dignity ft. Yemi Alade (Prod by Vtek) 1

Angelique Kidjo and Yemi Alade Teams Up Once Again, Drops New Song & Video titled “Dignity”.

Multiple Grammy award-winning singer, Angelique Kidjo, has released the stunning music video for “Dignity” featuring African pop diva Yemi Alade. The song is an homage to the protestors of the #EndSARS movement last year—Nigeria’s call to an end to police brutality. Kidjo and Alade have come together a year later after successfully collaborating on the acclaimed smash “Shekere“.

The “Dignity” music video is cinematic storytelling fitting for the message behind the Vtek produced song; and shows a bleak view of migrants working at a port who face being unfairly laid off. The spirited video reveals that dance and song are the organic liberating forces. Furthermore, it calls for the dignified treatment of Black people. Alade brings a dynamic twist to the song with her passionate energy driven by first-hand perspective as an activist who was directly involved in the #EndSARS movement.

“Many people think that police brutality only happens in America, but it’s everywhere. This song is against brutality, but it’s also about how we need to treat each other with dignity, treat nature with dignity, and treat ourselves with dignity. Because if we can’t see the dignity that Mother Nature gave to all of us, then how can we walk tall?” Kidjo speaking on the duet and police brutality.

The song’s hook “respect is reciprocal” makes this song another anthem for reclaiming humanity. Kidjo and Alade enliven the visuals with their undeniably bold presence making “Dignity” a powerful cross-generational Beninese-Nigerian collaboration.

WSTRN x Fireboy DML – “Be My Guest” 14

The Official Video for Be My Guest by WSTRN & Fireboy DML is out Now!

London-based group, WSTRN, releases the “video” to their boarder-crossing single titled “Be My Guest”, on which they featured Nigerian singer, Fireboy DML.

The WSRN music band consists of three singers namely Akelle Charles, Haile and Louis Rei. Their major aim is to increase their audience reach and penetrate the African music community.

The band which specializes in making Rn B and Hip-Hop music, strongly pursue their revolutionary cause to push their native sound to the center of global music, hence the inspiration behind their band name. The name of the three-man group, ‘WSTRN’, is often termed to mean western when it actually represents positive vibrations and according to the group members, it means that it is “West London‘s turn to shut down the scene”.

On “Be My Guest“, WSTRN allowed their western music elements blend with the powerful Afro-pop/life melodies supplied by Fireboy DML.

Quotable Lyrics
Be my guest, you tryna get inside my head
I’m tryna fuck you in this kitchen
‘Cause I got another girl in my bed (In my bed)

This single has the potential to bring together a combined audience of the west and that of Africa to enjoy a common sound.

Music produced by @prgrshn.

The song music video shot in two locations was directed by Director @charliediplacido, and Director Dammy-Twitch (Nigeria 2nd Unit). Watch and Enjoy below

[Video] Yemi Alade – “Double Double” ft. Vtek 16

Nigerian singer and Africa’s Energetic performer, Yemi Alade returns with the visual of another banging/ sing along tune titled “Double Double”.

Effyzzie Music Group presents the official music video for “Double Double” by Yemi Alade featuring Vtek.

This brand new video is a follow up to Yemi Alade’s last music video ‘Sweety‘. SWEETY is a switch from Pop to Highlife and of course, that’s what she is known for. She kept it laid back and you can just chill and vibe with her as the horns and percussion swirl you to a head nod as the record plays. Yemi Alade’s sounds are typical to dance and body movement and so no matter how laid back she was (which is one sign of her growth and maturity) on this song, the production, and her style still got the dance groove up.

The song ‘Double Double‘ is a prayerful tune that comes with melody and a good dance vibe for your enjoyment. According to Yemi Alade via Twitter; ‘I need to start a #prayerchain, Where we speak into existence the blessing we want God to double in our lives before the year ends!

It’s off her EMPRESS album, Listen below and speak that which you want into existence and continue to Rejioce!
