Konvict presents Samklef’s debut, “Philo” with a glamorous video

Eye candy for those hung up on summer

If only for its significance to the theme of summer and our reluctance to kiss goodbye to the holiday, Samklef has stepped up his game on visuals. While we’ve heard Samklef singing before—debuting with “Nonilizing” and “Laba Laba”—his latest offering, “Philo” is his first release under Akon’s KonLive record label. The move has seen him progress from acclaimed producer to singer-songwriter and finally a visual artist of sort.


Thanks to the video production by label mate Patrick Elis, “Philo” is created as feast for the eyes with the bright and sunny motif of the video. Samklef’s performance is assisted by a model in a teasing bikini outfit. Complete with suntanned palm trees, a swimming pool, a green grand piano, bright colored fruits and a yellow Lamborghini, Samklef is holding on to the summer shin.

His dance moves on the mid-tempo Afropop vibe of the single is far from convincing. But he enjoys a seductive chemistry with the model and highlights the romantic narrative for “Philo”. Watch the video for “Philo” below.
