Thematically joining the myriad of songs dedicated to the dense madness that is the city of Lagos, Kizz Daniel’s “Eko” might not be the most ingenious song you’ll hear this year. But the singer’s penchant for insouciant melodies that easily creep into the ears of Nigerian music listeners, in conjunction with the equal parts punchy and groovy beat Philkeyz produces has helped the song warm its way up the charts since its release earlier this month.
The singer has just put out the music video for “Eko”, capturing his attempted panoramic portrayal of the city. The Daniel Vintage-directed visuals is a slightly frenzied mishmash of frames, showcasing street traders and workers going about their daily business, young people engaging in activities common to inner city life, and a party set a high-end club presumably filled with affluent people. Kizz Daniel is also seen performing his lyrics in the company of the Eyo masquerades, as well as with dancers who highlight the song’s dancefloor-ready vibe.
