Indie rap veterans Boogey and Paybac released one of the better rap albums this year with ‘Alternate Ending’. Between their technically sound raps and the musically varied production, both rappers push each other to create some of their best work yet. Validating their efforts, both rappers have just picked up 2019 Headies nomination, for their respective verses the album deep cut, “Implode”.
While they are expected to trail back into their solo works very soon, they’ve shared a new music video for “Uwaka”, in order to renew attention around their joint album. Featuring Trap-inflected production, Danladi’s yelled hook in Hausa and conceited bars from Boogey and Paybac, the song is an assertive set with a raucous energy.
Mostly shot against a white backdrop, the DIY-feel of the “Uwaka” video allows the jovial side of both rappers to show, as they are seen alternately hyping each other while performing their lyrics. The peak of their banter is a mini-scene where Paybac cracks some risque jokes, with Boogey behind the camera acting as the interviewer. Friends and colleagues also make cameo appearances, seemingly as a tribute to the cult fan base that continually supports them.
