The songs off Ajebutter22’s debut album, What Happens in Lagos all have striking stories that capture the Lagos lifestyle from the artist’s perspective. Over the 14-track tape (with two pre-released singles), he gives a detailed description of “What Happens in Lagos”, so it’s only right that the first video off the project will continue in the same narrative.
The video for “Wayward”, the 3rd track on the album is directed by San who retains Ajebutter22’s comedy and party themes in the visuals. To achieve this, popular social media comics, Frank Donga and Ebiye are featured. The pair play the role of party crashers at a Lagos high-society party where Ajebutter22 performs with models in their elements.
The video also contains high-contrast primary colour filter overlays on the sky portraying a surrealist world obsessed with youth, beauty, and feeling good. The celebrity cameos featured in “Wayward” video also reflects Lagos’ experience where music stars like BOJ et al make appearances at parties
