Beauty meets noir in Duncan Mighty and Wizkid’s music video for “Fake Love”

Watch the Clarence Peters directed video here

Lately, Wizkid’s music videos have been inspiring in its depiction of Nigeria. For his latest Starboy release, “Fake Love” featuring Duncan Mighty and himself, Clarence Peters gives the emotive single a fittingly sensual video set in a nightclub with exotic dancers, stimulating lighting and a stocked bar, shaped like a guitar.

All these elements make the video inviting as we watch the dancers perform their sexy dance routines and giving suggestive stares. But given the strained theme of “Fake Love”, their seduction only emphasizes the singers’ torment as they lament their inability to find love. Though Wizkid manages to move in line with the mid-tempo beat Killertunes produces, Duncan Mighty can’t hide the anguish from his performance, even when he’s lying down on a pile of money.
