“Palm Wine”, off the Take Not3s II EP, begins with short opening clips and images of Not3s entourage, the couple, Tosin and Emmanuel, dressed elegantly in a red dress and plaid suit, and an invitation card with a cute message. They invite Not3s, and by implication, all of us, to be part of their story by joining them to behold their gorgeous wedding. “Palm Wine” then takes us on a journey through the white wedding and reception (#Tanny2018). A defining emotional moment was when Emmanuel had the dance with his mum and let out his feelings with some tears.
With a lovely view from the dress up scene, to the church scene where the officiating minister initiated their marital vows, directors Not3s, Jamie Cox and Ron Nengese remind us that it’s always a beautiful thing to experience conjugal love anew. And with this video for “Palm Wine”, we can watch it again and again; it’s perfectly fitting to Not3s lines on the song. He ends the video sweetly, with a congratulatory message to the couple: “Congratulations Tanny, may your marriage be an unbreakable bond, Love Not3s”.
