The music video for Mayorkun’s “Sope” is a fun visual experience

Depicting Lagos in eye-catching blend of colors and filters

Mayorkun’s ambitious album debut, ‘Mayor of Lagos’, didn’t exactly hand the DMW star the keys to the city, but it gave fans a chance to see how groovy a Lagos ruled by Mayorkun would be. The 14-track album featured guest appearances from D’banj, Sarkodie, Patoranking, Mayorkun’s mom, the DMW squad and more pre-released singles than anyone could have predicted. He just released the music video for “Sope”, the second track on the tape and it helps create a visual representation of the bright and colourful Lagos Mayorkun imagines.

Clarence Peters brings Mayorkun’s preppy imagination to life with dancers and a beautiful set designs that match with the dancer’s outfits and costumes. While Mayorkun encourages listeners to celebrate their successes, the video follows the pop star as he rides through the city, first wearing a white traditional attire and spraying money out the window of a moving car, then later walking by the sunny beach with sexy women in bikinis. Despite the cool imagery and the metaphors they represent, it’s the eye-catching blend of colours and filters in each frame shot of dancers, Mayorkun and the set design that makes the music video for “Sope” so satisfying.
