You should get in on the positive energy beaming from Omawumi’s “Somtin” video

You missed the party but you can still catch some of the shine

Omawumi starts the year with “Somtin”, the video for the 7th track on her Timeless album, released a few months ago. Contentment and unbiased love are Omawumi’s inspiration for the motivational number that finds her singing about the freedom that comes with contentment.

Omawumi’s  style hasn’t exactly changed since her introduction as a dazzling vocalist on 2007’s West African Idols, but with time has come some maturity and control. Not to mention hit singles like “In The Music”. There aren’t a lot of other Nigerian artists who do what Omawumi does with her music. On “Somtin”, she makes her soulful jazz sound work with a contemporary African sound.

Though the video for “Somtin” is set at a house party with celebrity guest cameos from Kate Henshaw, Cobhams Asuquo, Darey Art Alade, MI, Yemi Alade, DJ Spinall, Adekunle Gold and a few others, Omawumi makes sure that the visuals don’t distract you from the message she’s passing. “Gotta Love Who You Love/ Life Is Too Short To Do Anything Else/ That’s Basically What I’m Trying To Say”, she says all matter-of-fact like before going on to party with the stars. We also see shots of her singing bathed in lights that make her skin glow. The entire video is rendered in vibrant colors that portray the positive vibes heard on the song. You’ll wish had gotten invited to the party with them, but at least you can catchy some of the positive energy through the screens of your devices. Watch Omawumi’s video for “Somtin” below.
