The Kritikal Buzz with Dami B & DJ XplizitSouljah- 4

By  |  4 Comments
Pasuma ft Tiwa Savage- Ife DJ Xplizitsouljah: This video right here is quite impressive and I would believe the reason is none other than Pasuma the Fuji god not allowing the industry blackball him into anything short of class. This is quite a mature and classy video I must reiterate that is the elegance you find in the video! Dami B: Congratulations to Unlimited LA for the fantastic job he did on this video! I love the simplicity and elegance like you said Xplizitsouljah….. It's a beautiful effortless video that will stay on people's mind for a very long time. I hope other video directors watching this will learn that simplicity goes long way to change the dynamics of a video! DJ Xplizitsouljah: The absence of the usual and expected video vixens and half nude dancers is a great positive for this visuals. Very refreshing I must say! Dami B: Thank GOD for no booty shaking models, you don't have to put in naked ladies and unnecessary lighting before a video can be appreciated! DJ Xplizitsouljah: I was going to say that too that the lightening was quite natural so it added to the ambience of the video. Dami B: Tiwa does a beautiful job and compliments the song nicely. She keeps on choosing great artists to work with, props to her. DJ Xplizitsouljah: My only issue with the video is that the emotions of both characters as played by the artists themselves doesn't manifest in a realistic sense when they both meet physically. You could tell that there was that ‘hold back’ from both ends. Other than this the video would have scored perfectly to me! Dami B: Yes I agree, and I am surprised because Tiwa is also an actress so she should have been able to embody her character alot better and display the love & affection that this storyline needed! DJ Xplizitsouljah: And so Dami to this end my rating for this video is an 8/10 smacks which is all kudos to Unlimited LA for doing a great job but the artists could have done a better job with the acting. Dami B: Pasuma's transition from Fuji music to Afropop has been a wise move for him, but I hope he doesn't lose the flare for what we came to love him for, and he still gives us some good Fuji once in a while. I will also rate this video as 8/10 purely deducting 2 points for the holding back of affection and emotion needed between the both of them. YungKay ft Patoranking – Ajebutter DJ Xplizitsouljah: You can tell this is a big budget video going by the choice of props. Great storyline to the video impressive settings a la ‘Mission Impossible’ style but to me this suffers the same disease most other videos do; the half-naked models. Dami B: I've never listened to YungKay however I think he held his own on this track. His talent is evident to me. At times he reminded me of an early Wizkid in terms of style of singing & rhyming. I think the ‘Mission Impossible’ style storyline was creative and different. Not something many Nigerian artists would attempt. The scenery on the rooftop was absolutely gorgeous! But I have to disagree with you Xplizitsouljah, for me the beautiful models were actually needed! Dami B: Infact I would have been surprised if I didn't see beautiful models since its quite a James Bond type storyline and James Bond always had beautiful women around him LOL, but they weren't half naked really….. DJ Xplizitsouljah: Well, I'm not going to get into an argument over the need for the girls in the video but my thing is they could have be fully clothed rather than in bikini….. Sexy isn't necessarily synonymous with swimwear or undergarments! Dami B: It was a house drink up with a pool, of course they will be in bikinis and most of them were actually wearing clothes, just with shorts etc.! DJ Xplizitsouljah: Still the video is a testament to YungKay’s drive and strive for superstardom. Dami B: What about Patoranking? Did he add anything to the track or video for you? DJ Xplizitsouljah: Patoranking did what was expected of him to the song, but as to the video he didn't have the required presence which is why he is easily forgettable for the fact that he is on the song. Dami B: I agree, he didn't really stand out in the video but his verse was good. Overall I give this video 8/10 slaps because I really like the theme of it. DJ Xplizitsouljah: I like the story and the ambience of the video and I'm not even sure if this is a first for the director Mazi Jizzle but he did deliver. So 7/10 is my gifting to the video.

    Making impact in the entertainment industry is very easy just that most of youths that are in this industry are not doing enough on the aspect of writing good lyrics,the storyline and the video.Ladies appearing in bikini and dancing around doesnt mean you have succeeded in producing the best video also.So my advice to them is that they should work on the lyrics,the storyline,the video and the characters too should try to reflect the true character of an artiste in the video.That is why you see Tuface making wave in the music industry than most of his collegue because he hardly produce bad videos and naked ladies dancing around.

    Good thing we have people who take interest in analysing videos and giving the general public hints as to what the videos are.Bigups Dami B & DJ Xplizitsouljah..

    It is also a delight to hear of Nigerians shooting videos without the cliché usage of vixens in little or no clothes on..I would download this vid as soon as my 9pm data comes up. 🙂

    Awesome Video and as an artist myself I will talk more about the audio itself. The voices in the chorus blended very well with both backing each other up! Paso really know how to sing and Tiwa’s voice is heavenly! You guys,Dammy B and DjXplisit did justice with rating,I enjoyed every bit of the review!
