It’s only about 24 hours since fast-rising singer and rapper Rema premiered the video for his instant hit ‘Dumebi’.
The visual to the song has been in high anticipation since the tune got bigger around the country with various fans making dance videos and skits to it.
The team behind Rema took the alté direction in making the video for ‘Dumebi’ with some dark esoteric vibes to it. Apparently the Nigerian fans are split over the music video, some are all ‘Yay’ while another section scream ‘Nah’ about it.
Those in favour of the music video are OK with the art direction as it was kept at a minimal with few casts mainly kids around Rema’s age group. The main idea is that Rema is still enjoying what’s left of his fast ebbing childhood and innocence as seen in the visuals.
For the naysayers, the expected a larger than life video for one of the biggest sings right now in the country. Some feel Mavin Records were playing it too safe with the direction of the music video and could have done much better.
