Olamide’s latest release, the music video for previously releases “Oil and Gas” single finds the YBNL label executive returning to his familiar dance video trope. As his music has gotten more and more club party driven, so has his video’s direction, known for making the Shaku Shaku dance viral with his #Wodancechallenge in 2017.
Though the video for “Oil and Gas” isn’t reaching to create a new dance wave, it does make a cultural statement as the dancers mime to Olamide’s lightweight social commentary over the catchy beat Pheelz produces for dancefloors fascinations. While Olamide’s lyrics toe the line between praising and mocking the rich, the video TG Omori directs also emphasizes, Olamide’s claim to the streets as we watch children in school and on the streets, having fun and dancing in the rain while the older kids run into some money and go shopping.
Like the song, the video for “Oil and Gas” offers some commentary on our society but is more focused on ensuring viewers have a good time while watching. You can see the music video below.
