Yemi Alade has officially dropped the video to her freshly released single, Single & Searching ahead for her BlackMagic Album. To the excitement of a lot of fans, it features Instagram sensation Gloria Oloruntobi aka Maraji.
The video directed by Clarence Peter brings to light the ordeal of women at the hands of their husbands, those set of married men who constantly act more single, than even the Bachelors. It showcases also the betrayal young girls face when they finally discover they’ve been lied to. These revelations often come with violence and harm, either from the man’s spouse or by the victim’s hand. While it’s refreshing to see creatives use their platforms to address real issues via, videos, it hurts the eye, to see it sometimes done in such satirical manner, which oftentimes undermines the seriousness of the addressed issue.
But again we can’t all depend on artists to make the world better with their craft. With all her collaborations and solo offerings, the anticipation to Yemi Alade’s third studio project is building up.
