When it comes to high quality, creatively advanced videos, Siji’s video for Ijo has to rank at the higher part of the list for the past year. Great concept, and great execution. Enjoy.
Producers: Siji, Alix Alvarez & Tunji Ladoja
Hot on the success of the recent Siji/Alix Alvarez collaboration comes the stunning visual interpretation to their classic single “Ijo”.
Shot on location in Lagos, Nigeria, where Siji has been rediscovering his childhood past following a 20yr plus absence, the colorful and visually arresting masterpiece showcases an open audition held for dancers drawn from the bustling metropolis.
It features cameo appearances from a colorful cast of characters including Afrobeat Singer, Ade Bantu, the delightful songstress, Ms. Yinka Davis, radio impresario Tintin ‘The Koolness’ as well as a royal prince, all of who masterfully played out the lyrics with quite amusing results.
The chart topping single ‘IJO’ is currently available for purchase on Itunes and all other digital platforms.
