On Davido’s Aye Video
Davido is an impressive young musician. Why you may ask? He has a strong sense of how to meld traditional elements into the contemporary evolving art form in which he practises. Aye, a very emergent experimental sound, deserves an unusual video. So it becomes interesting that the video is shot in an agrarian village settlement with scenes cut from a cassava plantation, an old mud house and a village dance benefit. Like in Gobe, there is that imminent threat of danger when the Queen becomes the love interest of a humble Davido who perhaps has just his jaunty strides and dimples to offer. It’s enjoyable though, the experience of the tune and the video intrepretation. Kudos to Clarence Peters.
