Abuja’s Apex Village collective has whipped up a considerable level of notoriety in the last two years, putting out a prolific stream of music releases to sate their expanding fanbase. At the top of the year, the crew put out their first collective album, ‘Welcome to the Ville’, an all-inclusive 9-track tape that scans the breadth of the posse’s exuberant poster. In support of W.T.T.V, the crew have just released the music video for the intro, title track, adding a visual component to the tape’s introductory aspect.
Set to a gummy, instrumental amalgamation of Trap and Funk, comprising appergiated guitar licks, rippling bass and slip-n-slide percussions, Psycho YP, Zilla Oaks, AYÜÜ and Marv OTM take turns delivering self-assured lyrics, heavy on bravado and braggadocio. Showcasing the camaraderie that binds the group, as well as its anarchic core, the music video AO Innovation, Kuddi is Dead, Psycho YP & Ceeander direct for “W.T.T.V” is mostly shot at a pastoral location, and through a guerrilla-tinted aesthetic. Each rapper takes turns to perform their confident lyrics, in the company of their colleagues, as well as in their own unique locations.
