Like Davido’s Skelewu needs anymore attention than it has garnered in the last few months since its first release. First, Davido created a frenzy via a competition by offering $3,000 USD to anyone who could create the best dance video to the song – which after many fun attempts by various people including footballer Emmanuel Adebayor and Nigerian comedian AY, a winner was announced. Davido shared an image of the winner of the Skelewu dance competition , Kiddy via instagram last week.
On the 15th of October, an official Skelewu video was released which we later learnt from Davido via tiwtter and an official press release that the released video which was shot by Sesan was infact an online leak which he, Davido never signed off for public release as he later discovered he didn’t like the final edit.
On the 16th of October, just less than 24hrs after the leak of the unapproved video, Davido has shot a totally new video under the directorship of Moe Musa in London under the production of Pheonix Global Media.
What we are now expected to see is an epic adventure that has never been seen before. Abi Wilson-Obruche of Pheonix Global Media said, “It was a pleasure working with Davido. Given the short period of time we had to put the video together, it was interesting working on an adventurous concept and HKN proved to be a excellent partner in delivering the video”.
Moe Musa and his team has pulled out all the stops to create a “28 Days Later” concept for the video to prove to the world that “Skelewu” has officially taken over.
The video is said to première worldwide on Monday.
Skelewu, the hottest Afrobeats song out right now is officially ready to take the world by storm. Are you ready?
