When these videos dropped years ago, we really loved and felt them. I tried to come up with a list of videos which will still look amazing and bang hard if they were to be released today.
There were too many amazing videos from wayback that crossed my mind and that made it difficult to choose just five.
Well, these are the first five throwback videos that come to my mind:
2face – True Love
The video for 2face Idibia’s 2016 song, True Love (off the Grass 2 Grace album) is a beautiful work of art.
Quite minimalist in nature but very well delivered. Check it out:
D’Prince – Give It To Me ft. D’banj
On this 2010 hit, D’Prince and D’banj came with the sauce. They both came correct on this one and it will forever be a club banger when it comes on.
The video was directed by Sesan Ogunro and featured cameos from Don Jazzy, Wande Coal, Brymo, Wizkid, Iceprince, Special Ed (now Special Spesh), Fade Ogunro, Asa Asika, Chidinma Okebalama (now Chee), and many others.
Indeed, it’s been a jonzing world since the Mo’Hits era.
P-Square – Do Me ft Waje
When Peter and Paul Okoye released Do Me video in 2007, the nation stood still.
The video for the club banger was shot in South Africa by Jude Engees Okoye. A proper house-party video at that.
The video was so perfect that the only thing disappointing about it was the absence of Waje whose voice added so much spice to the track.
Gino – No Be God ft. Cmion
Sadly, I can’t find a clear version of this video but this video was really hot then. Those of you who watched it then can testify.
I think the video was released in 2007 or thereabout and was shot by Wudi Awa.
Well, the concept remains A1 over a decade after. Aside being an iconic rap song, Gino and Cmion created something that has stood the test of time.
Banky W – Feeling It ft. M.I
This dark but yet beautiful video was released in 2010. Directed by Josh Clarke, it tells an interesting love story.
The video features a cameo appearance by Djinee.
