Top Nigerian popstar Wizkid is again making waves with his latest music video, “Come Closer” featuring rapper Drake. The visuals drop just a few days after he debuted the audio, which has received critical acclaim and love from fans. It’s a hip-hop Afrobeat fusion with heavy Caribbean influence.
Wizkid has been on a string of international collabs, from Major Lazer to Drake to Ty Dollar $ign to Justin Skye. He keeps setting the bar higher.
The video has a striking African feel with the models and dancers being beautiful ladies in tribal makeup and outfits. The singer rocked dyed hair but sticks to his street style swag.
The video was directed by director Daps, who made the “Bad and Boujee” music video. Be sure to read my interview with the fast-rising director and watch the music video below:
