After dropping a dope song, many musicians get it wrong with the music video.
Recently, a twitter follower of mine said this:
A Nigerian musician will release a song about love, faithfulness and a girl of his dreams. Music video will feature the said musician in a club with a hundred girls.
That was so spot on!
Music videos ought to correlate with the song. You can’t be singing about heartbreak and your video features you dancing in a party. Or the one that really gets my goat, every music video these days must feature half clad girls.
There are amazing musicians who always get it right music video wise. Here are my top four musicians who never disappoint with their music videos:
Apart from making soul uplifting music, Asa makes videos that are evergreen. Asa’s videos never cease to be relevant and they always correlate with what her song is about.
I bet y’all still watch the video to “Fire on the Mountain” like it was made last week.

Mr. Capable himself is one of those artists that has mastered the act of proper music videos. From Ebute Metta to Jasi, we are yet to find a video that doesn’t enhance the song it was made for.
Waje is one songstress that drops banging music videos. Her video to the song “Onye” featuring Tiwa Savage is still as fresh today as the day it was made.
Darey is one artist that has the music video business on lockdown. Everyone has been in love with Darey’s music videos since the days of “Not the Girl.” And we still love his videos till date.
Which other musicians are making awesome music videos?
